The Fifth Madingley Conference
The Earthly Heaven: The Mother of God and the Holy Mountain
25 – 27 February, 2011

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 fifth conference in February 2011. Between dinner on Friday 25 February and lunch on Sunday 27 February there will be a series of talks devoted to the mother of God and Mount 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:
Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia     Metropolitan Nikolaos of Mesogaia
Fr Lukas of Xenophontos Monastery     Aidan Hart
Dimitri Conomos     Dimitrios Skrekas

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

Total cost (including registration, accommodation, all meals): £240.00 (€300 / $360)

Full-time students (including registration, accommodation, all meals): £120.00 (€150 / $180)

Non-residents (including lunch and dinner but not accommodation): £110.00 (€140 / $165)

Since the number of places is strictly limited, members are advised to make a reservation as soon as possible. The conference is also open to non-members. (Bursaries are available)
