This spring, from May 26th – June 9th, 2014, St. Petersburg School of Religion and Philosophy will host a 10 day seminar on the “Foundations of Russian Religion and Culture in the Course of a Thousand Years.” The seminar will be held entirely in English.
The objective is to “learn about the notion of beauty and its development through the ages in Russia.” What this means is that through an exploration of both traditional and modern art each student will deepen their understanding of Orthodoxy and the icon.
The schedule includes lectures on Russian theology and iconography, master classes by iconographers, travel to icon centers in Novgorod, Pskov, services in both Russian and english at various churches and monasteries, visits to the Hermitage and Dostoevsky’s house and much more.
The cost is $2500 inclusive except airfare.
