Register for the Bohdan Bociurkiw Memorial Lecture
Following the canonical legitimation of the newly constituted Orthodox Church of Ukraine in January 2019, there are now three competing “national” churches in the country whose ecclesiastical roots extend back to the ancient Kyiv metropoly—with divergent transnational allegiances to the Pope (First Rome), the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople (Second Rome), and the Moscow Patriarchate (Third Rome). The lecture will analyze some of the consequences for church-state, nation, and civil society relations, for potential consolidation of a pattern of religious denominational pluralism, and for ongoing ecumenical and geopolitical relations between the three Romes.
The lecture will be also live-streamed on the CIUS Facebook page
