Theological scholarship in Ukraine was suppressed for decades by the communist regime. Today Ukraine is witnessing a revival of interest in theology and related disciplines. Over the past years many young Ukrainian theologians have obtained their academic degrees from world class universities. International in scope, the conference seeks to stimulate scholarly enquiry, constructive dialogue and interactions between and among different Christian traditions with a special interest in the current condition and future prospects of Biblical scholarship in ecumenical perspective. It is our aim that young academics and senior scholars whether from the leading centers of Biblical studies or from emerging schools have a chance to respond to their colleagues' work in a professional and academic setting. As Ukraine stands at the crossroads of Eastern (Orthodox) and Western (Catholic and Protestant) theological worlds, the conference is particularly open to insights that reflect Ukraine’s “nexus” position in Biblical Studies between Eastern and Western Christian traditions. The conference will include two days of keynote talks in the morning and panels in the afternoon. The working languages are English, Ukrainian and Russian. The organizers plan to publish the conference proceedings.

      Відомо, що в РПЦ та УПЦ МП століттями практикується педофілія. І сам Агафангел далеко не ангел. А церковників покривають рекетири-бандити. Хто буде нарешті визнавати свої численні гріхи, щиросердно
