In honor of the jubilee celebrating eight centuries of the autocephaly of the Serbian Orthodox Church (1219-2019), and under the auspices of the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Faculty of Orthodox Theology in Belgrade is hosting, December 10-14, 2018, an international scholarly conference dedicated to the event of independence of the Serbian Orthodox Church and eight centuries of its contribution to the history, theology, and culture of the Serbian people. More than one hundred eminent local and foreign scholars will take part in this scholarly event, which will serve to proclaim an undivided desire of the collective scientific mind to actualize the current connotations of Orthodox Christianity both in the Serbian context and wider.
