The morning will begin with a workshop led by Father Daniel Findikyan (St. Nersess Armenian Seminary). In his workshop, Liturgy and Armenian’s Christian DNA, Father Findikyan will introduce the liturgy of Armenia: its history, development, and key features. The workshop will explore in particular the ways in which Armenian art responds to the needs of the liturgy. Following the workshop, Father Findikyan and Christina Maranci (Tufts University) will lead a handling session with liturgical objects from the Armenian Museum.
Seating is limited. Registration is required. A short group of pre-assigned readings will be circulated at least one week prior to the workshop. Participants are expected to complete the readings before the workshop. Transportation between Harvard Square and Watertown will be provided.
