Conversing Conversion

Sat July 25th and Sun July 26th 
The Catholic Center at NYU 

   Conversing Conversion explores these events in history and hagiography:
500th anniversary of the birth of St.Philip Neri (July 21)
  750th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri (May - June)
  1000th anniversary Kievan-Russian martyrs SS.Boris & Gleb (July 24) 

 *Join these renowned speakers for a conference covering the historical-spiritual importance of the Greatest Poet in Italian History; the Eccentric Conversationalist of the Counter Reformation; the First Kiev-Rus Martyrs. What possible connections do they display? What lessons do they convey? 

Dante converses with the inhabitants of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. How do his conversations with sinners and saints lead him (and his readers) to “conversion”? His fellow Florentine, Philip Neri walked the streets of Rome striking up conversations with strangers who soon became fast friends. How did their penchant for conversation with God and one another lead to the transformation of Rome? Boris and Gleb were the sons of Prince Vladimir of Kiev whose conversion to Christianity meant the conversion of his nation. How did their shed blood seal the Christianization of the Kievan-Rus and inform Orthodox hagiography? Love and Life, Sin and Mercy, Imagination and Reason…Conversing Conversion.
