Conference dates: June 18 – 21, 2018

Conference website:

Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut

At a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological
concerns, the conference will explore ideas of creation and the cosmos as
embedded in the worship life of the church. Conference speakers will
highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and
musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns.  The broader
aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition
– and its particular insights – to the ongoing conversations around ecology
and cosmology.  It will become clear that liturgy has always been about
more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and
the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.
