Jeremy Pilch

 

Following undergraduate studies at Oriel College, Oxford, and an MA at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (UCL), Dr Jeremy Pilch was awarded a scholarship for a doctorate at the University of Bristol, researching on the doctrine of deification in the Russian tradition, focusing especially on the thought of Vladimir Solov’ev. At St Mary’s University, Dr Pilch is the Programme Director for the BA In Theology, Religion, and Ethics. He regularly teaches across a range of topics, including modules on Systematic Theology, Mariology, Mystical Theology, Theological Anthropology, Christian Ethics, Ecclesiology, and Eastern Christianity

 

‘Whatever Happened to Tradition?”

Dr Stanley is a well-known historian and journalist, and author of the recent Whatever Happened to Tradition?

 

This talk is a follow up from his successful book published in 2021

The West feels lost. Brexit, Trump, the coronavirus: we hurtle from one crisis to another, lacking definition, terrified that our best days are behind us. The central argument of this book is that we can only face the future with hope if we have a proper sense of tradition - political, social and religious. We ignore our past at our peril. The problem, argues Tim Stanley, is that the Western tradition is anti-tradition, that we have a habit of discarding old ways and old knowledge, leaving us uncertain how to act or, even, of who we really are. In this wide-ranging book, we see how tradition can be both beautiful and useful, from the deserts of Australia to the court of nineteenth-century Japan. Some of the concepts defended here are highly controversial in the modern West: authority, nostalgia, rejection of self and the hunt for spiritual transcendence. We'll even meet a tribe who dress up their dead relatives and invite them to tea. Stanley illustrates how apparently eccentric yet universal principles can nurture the individual from birth to death, plugging them into the wider community, and creating a bond between generations. He also demonstrates that tradition, far from being pretentious or rigid, survives through clever adaptation, that it can be surprisingly egalitarian. The good news, he argues, is that it can also be rebuilt. It's been done before. The process is fraught with danger, but the ultimate prize of rediscovering tradition is self-knowledge and freedom.

Joseph Shaw talks to FIUV contacts in three former Communist-bloc countries

 

From Russia: Oleg-Martin Martynov of Una Voce Russia

Oleg-Michaël Martynov (b. 1977) is a founding member of Una Voce Russia, and is on its governing Board. He is also a member of the FIUV Council .

 

Born and raised in a typical secular family in the last years of the USSR, he was baptized into the Catholic Church in his early 20s. He is married, with two grown-up children but no grandchildren yet, and is an English to Russian translator by trade.

 

From Poland: Jarosław Syrkiewicz (b.1971) was founding member of Una Voce Polonia and remains on their Board. Jarosław gained an MA in Economics (University of Economics - Katowice 1996), and works in IT.

 

 

From Romania: Prof  Robert Lazu Kmita
