Saint Louis University and the St. Irenaeus Orthodox Theological Institute are pleased to present "For the Good of Many": Constantine and the Edict of Milan on its 1700th Anniversary, an interdisciplinary conference designed to elicit scholarly reflection on the legacy of one of the most important events of Western political and religious history. The two day event begins Friday, September 20th with a guided tour of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, an outstanding example of Neo-Byzantine architecture and home to the world's largest installation of mosaic iconography. We then proceed to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church for a Byzantine Rite vespers service in English followed by a banquet, where Dr. James C. Skedros, Professor of Byzantine Studies and Church History at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, will deliver the address. The next day we reconvene at Saint Louis University for a full day of learned reflection. Dr. Everett Ferguson, Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Abilene Christian University, will deliver the keynote address. Concurrent paper sessions will follow, capped by a plenary round table discussion on the legacy of Constantine in the various Christian traditions.
