Dr. Bruce Foltz to Present Ecology Lecture at St. Vladimir�s Seminary
YONKERS, NY [SVOTS Communications]
Dr. Bruce Foltz, an Orthodox Christian and Professor of Philosophy at
Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, FL, will offer a free and public
lecture, �The Truth of Nature,� at St. Vladimir�s Orthodox Theological
Seminary <http://www.svots.edu/> here at 7:00 p.m. on September 1, 2013.
The talk will contrast today�s post�modern assumptions regarding the
environment with patristic and historic Christian understandings of what
it means to care for God�s creation.
The lecture is being sponsored by Saint Herman�s Society for Orthodox
Ecology (a seminarian-led group established in 2010 to address issues of
ecological stewardship) and the Orthodox Fellowship of Transfiguration.
Preceding the lecture, at 6:00 p.m., members of Saint Herman�s Society
will plant a new tree on the seminary grounds to beautify the campus,
which will be followed by an �Akathist in Praise of God�s Creation� in
Three Hierarch�s Chapel. Society members selected the date for the tree
planting, Akathist, and lecture to coincide with the date designated by
His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, as
a day dedicated to environmental protection.
The lecture will be held in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the
John G. Rangos Family Foundation Building and will be followed by a
question and answer session and a public reception.
