The Fourth Madingley Conference
Mount Athos: Microcosm of the Christian East

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 rooms (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.

The Friends of Mount Athos have decided to return to Madingley for a fourth conference in February 2009. Between dinner on Friday 20 February and lunch on Sunday 22 February there will be a series of eight talks devoted to the different religious traditions represented on Athos. All the speakers have an intimate knowledge of their subject and are keen to make it accessible to a broadly based audience.

The speakers will be:
Dame Averil Cameron (Oxford)
Fr Constantin Coman (Bucharest)
Dr Nicholas Fennell (Winchester)
Dr Tamara Grdzelidze (Geneva)
Dr Vladeta Jankovic (Belgrade)
Fr Ephrem Lash (Manchester)
Dr Rosemary Morris (York)
Metropolitan Kallistos Ware (Oxford)

There will be a framework of Orthodox church services which the non-Orthodox will be welcome to attend.
