Interdisciplinary Conference at Yale University


“Full of Your Glory”: Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation


Send proposed title, abstract (150-200) words, and CV by March 1, 2017 to Nicole Benevenia: nicole.benevenia [at]


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.
