Especially powerful, in any of their languages, is the sound. Orthodox liturgies are a tapestry of song, adorned with hymns, musical prayers, melodic responses, chanted refrains, and intoned sacred readings. Susan Ashbrook Harvey is a scholar of ancient Byzantine Christianity, both Greek and Syriac. In this presentation, she explores the historical tradition of worship as a musical weaving to which all participants – clergy, choirs, and laity – contribute with sounding voice.Speaker Biographies:Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Willard Prescott and Annie McClelland Smith Professor of History and Religion, Director of Early Cultures at Brown University.Susan specializes in late antique and Byzantine Christianity, with Syriac studies as her particular focus. She has published widely on topics relating to asceticism, hagiography, women and gender, hymnography, homiletics, and piety in late antique Christianity.Mary Priniski, OP, an Adrian Dominican Sister, received her PhD in Theology from the Union Institute and University with an interdisciplinary approach to engaging in mission across social boundaries.
