An Event to mark the Third Anniversary of the Abduction of the Metropolitan of Aleppo

On the 22nd of April 2016 a symposium will take place to mark the lapse of three years since the abduction of the Metropolitan of Aleppo, Mor Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim, abducted on 22nd April 2013, together with his fellow Metropolitan Paul Yazigi.

The event will consist of keynote speakers, songs, poems, and the book-launch of the Festschrift, developed as an appreciation of Mor Gregorios’ contribution to academia. The Festschrift benefits from 100 selected friends of More Gregorios as world-wide contributors, who have shared their memories with us. Supporting this event will show solidarity for both abducted bishops. The event will take place at the Brunei Theatre, SOAS - University of London, Russell Square, WC1H 0XG, at 18:00 – 21:00.

  1. Really interesting! Thank you so much for sharing this information here. I attended a similar event at local wedding venues with my friends. We all had so much fun there and learnt many new things. Loved it a lot!
