Philo-Sophia Colloquium on Russian Thought and Study Group Meeting “Philosophy in Central and Eastern Europe”
10 June 2016 @ 14:30 - 17:30
Sophia. A name, a notion, a divine symbol… The Church Fathers saw it as an organic part of Christology. Medieval Russia entirely maintained their views until the 18th century. The age of Enlightenment raised the question of the “development” of the Christian doctrine. New interpretations of Sophia appeared as well. Some Russian thinkers, starting from the second half of the 19th century, elaborated a particular field of philosophical research – the Sophiology / Софиология. It was defined by Sergei Bulgakov as the “central way of modern religious thought in Russia”. At the Philo-Sophia colloquium, talks and a roundtable discussion will be focused on the work of Russian sophiologists – Vladimir Solov’ëv, Pavel Florensky, Sergei Bulgakov, and others.
