Athens embraces these traditions and experiences the ritual of Holy Week in a way that reflects its ancient and Byzantine roots.
The Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, celebrated in the context of the rebirth of nature in the Mediterranean, will be a springboard for us to explore Athens through its historical memories and monuments.
Representatives of various Christian traditions and denominations will be asked to expound on their understanding of suffering, death and eternal life in the context of the Passion and Resurrection of the Lord.
The theological significance of the key events celebrated each day of the Holy Week will be explored through a series of lectures within the context of the immediate experience surrounding them.
Easter, since the Apostolic era, is the time of the main celebration of Christian unity. It offers us today a chance to explore similarities and differences between Christian traditions and denominations and above all, the opportunity to pray together.
