      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Los Angeles, CA

      On October 18 - 21, 2012, The Department of Patristic Studies of the
      Faculty of Orthodox Theology at the University of Belgrade, Serbia in
      collaboration with the Orthodox Christian Studies Program of Fordham
      University, will host an International Symposium on Saint Maximus the
      Confessor, commemorating the 1350th anniversary of his repose
      [†662]. What makes this Conference so unique? Leading theologians
      from all over the world will gather to discuss the important topic of
      Knowing the purpose of everything through the Power of the Resurrection,
      which is based on Saint Maximus' words in his Centuries on Theology
      and Economy (1.66 ) His exegesis proves to be tremendously critical and
      fruitful today, as he invites us to discover spiritual benefits in the
      most obscure corners of Scripture and all reality. Integrating theory
      and practice, he has been called a cosmic theologian, offering a vision
      of the "cosmic liturgy," inspiring a "cosmological
      prophecy" and "eucharistic cosmology."

      This conference will focus on Maximus' increasingly noticeable role
      as a "Saint for East and West" and on the mediating potential of
      his profound theological vision for Eastern and Western Christianity!
