Speaker(s): His Eminence Metropolitan Ignatius of Demetrias and Almyros

Recorded on 12 November 2014 at Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

As historically a central pole of national identity, and with a new politics of nationalism evident, the way in which the Greek Orthodox Church is impacted by Greece’s economic crisis and how it responds to it is of major importance to the nation’s public and social affairs. The Bishop has a strong record of connecting the Church to contemporary social issues and of opening up to other faiths. This lecture will address the challenges posed by the crisis.

His Eminence Metropolitan Ignatius of Demetrias and Almyros is a Diocesan Bishop of the Church of Greece. H. E. Metropolitan Ignatius of Demetrias, member of many synodal commissions of the Church of Greece, is also President of the Board of Directors of the Volos Academy for Theological Studies, and of the General Assembly of the Greek Bible Society, while for the last twenty years he was presenting the religious emission on the Greek TV.
