Cantonis Lecture

The Michael G.and Anastasia Cantonis Chair of Byzantine Studies at Hellenic College and Holy Cross will present the first of two lectures in its Spring Lecture Series in the Reading Room of the Archbishop Iakovos Library and Learning Resource Center on March 31, 2011 at 7:30 pm. The lecture will be given by Professor Vasiliki Limberis of Temple Unversity and is entitled "Ekphrasis: Materializing Martyria Then and Now." Professor Limberis is Associate Professor of Ancient Christianity at Temple University, Department of Religion, and affiliate faculty in the Department of Greek and Roman Classics, where she has taught since 1990. She holds both masters and doctoral degrees from Harvard Divinity School. Professor Limberis is trained in the History of Ancient Christianity and is fascinated by the interplay of religious cultures - pagan, Christian, Jewish - in the first five centuries of the common era. She has published numerous articles on the Cappadocian fathers, the cult of the Theotokos, and the interplay of imperial policy and ecclesiastical politics during the Theodosian period. Professor Limberis' most recent book, Architects of Piety: The Cappadocian Fathers and the Cult of the Martyrs, has just come out from Oxford University Press.

The lecture is open to the public and there is no charge for admission.
