Public Lecture by His Eminence Metropolitan Ignatius, "The Greek Orthodox Church and the Economic Crisis"

A public lecture will be given by His Eminence Metropolitan Ignatius, who will speak on "The Greek Orthodox Church and the Economic Crisis". The event will take place on Wednesday 12 November, 18.30 at the London School of Economics.


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.

This event is free and open to all and no ticket is required. Entry is on a first come-first served basis. If you would like to request a press sear or have a media query about this event, email LSE.Press.Events@lse.ac.uk
