Madingley Hall is a grand seventeenth-century country house 3 miles west of Cambridge. It belongs to the university and serves as a designated conference centre. With its 50 single rooms and 13 shared (all with en-suite facilities) it provides comfortable accommodation for up to 76 delegates as well as ample car parking in its 7-acre grounds.
Following the success of their first conference in 2003 the Friends of Mount Athos have decided to return to Madingley for a second conference in March 2005. Between dinner on Friday 4 March and lunch on Sunday 6 March there will be a series of seven talks presented by Orthodox theologians and art historians of international renown keen to make their topics accessible to a broadly based audience.
- The main speakers will be:
- Bishop Kallistos Ware (Oxford)
- Professor Ioli Kalavrezou (Cambridge, Mass.)
- Abbot Vasileios (Iviron Monastery)
- Dr Dimitri Conomos (Oxford)
- Aidan Hart (Shropshire)
- Dr John Nandris (Londonderry)
- Dr Sophia Sotiropoulou (Ormylia)
There will be a framework of Orthodox church services which the non-Orthodox will be welcome to attend.
