About this title


New Voices in Greek Orthodox Thought brings to the light and discusses a strand in contemporary Greek public debate that is often overlooked, namely progressive religious actors of a western orientation. International - and Greek - media tend to focus on the extreme views and to categorise positions in the public debate along well known dichotomies such as traditionalists vs. modernsers. Demonstrating that in late modernity, parallel to rising nationalisms, there is a shift towards religious communities becoming the central axis for cultural organization and progressive thinking, the book presents Greece as a case study based on empirical field data from contemporary theology and religious education, and makes a unique contribution to ongoing debates about the public role of religion in contemporary Europe.

About the Author:

Trine Stauning Willert is assistant professor of Modern Greek Studies at the Department for Cross-cultural and Regional Studies at University of Copenhagen. Her research interests include religion, education and literature in contemporary Greece and the cultural relationship between Greece and Europe in a historical and contemporary perspective. She has edited two collective volumes: Innovation in the Orthodox Christian Tradition? The Question of Change in Greek Orthodox Thought and Practice (Ashgate 2012) (with Lina Molokotos-Liederman) and Rethinking the Space for Religion. New Actors in Central and Southeast Europe on Religion, Authenticity and Belonging (Nordic Academic Press 2012) (with Catharina Raudvere and Krzysztof Stala). Her current research project funded by the Carlsberg Foundation (2012-2016) examines Greek literature between European modernity and Ottoman heritage from 1880-2011 in the framework of the research programme ’Many Roads in Modernity. Ottoman Heritage and Transformation in South Eastern Europe from 1870 to the Present’.
