UNIVERSITY OF BALAMAND
Call for participation:
The research unit ARPOA of the Institute of History, Archaeology and Near-Eastern Studies (IOHANES) of the University of Balamand in Lebanon will hold an international symposium in November 2012, on
“The Greek Orthodox Church architectural heritage: a comparative perspective with other Christian and non-Christian groups of the Middle East and its neighbouring areas”.
The symposium will conclude a research project launched by the University of Balamand to survey all the places of worship of the Greek-Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch (Lebanon, Syria, southern Turkey, Iraq and the Gulf States), with the aim of evaluating their cultural and religious heritage characteristics. Most of the results are on-line at http://www.balamand.edu.lb/ARPOA
We invite proposals from scholars working on this theme. The four workshops of the symposium are:
