Greek-Orthodox Religioscapes Exhibition

Monday 09 Mar 2020

“Greek-Orthodox Religioscapes” by Dr Georgios E. Trantas, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, Aston University, which will present a showcase of the European Union Commission Horizon 2020 research project ‘GO Religioscapes’, examines and compares the migratory narratives of the Greek and Greek-Cypriot migrant communities in present day Germany and Britain respectively from the perspective of religious aesthetics.
Either previously heterodox converted to Greek-Orthodox or newly built, the churches of these communities contain traces of migratory narratives in their icons, frescoes, architectural and linguistic elements. This study sheds light on how the migratory establishment in the receiving country has been experienced, perceived and immortalised by religious means.

Organised jointly by the Hellenic Institute, Centre for Greek Diaspora Studies and Centre for the GeoHumanities at Royal Holloway, and Aston University. Supported by the Hellenic Centre.
