Has anyone had a chance to listen to any of these?

Does anyone know when the next Orientale Lumen in Constantinople is? I might want to go.

Has anyone had a chance to listen to any of these?

I listened to several of those.

I'm working my way through them. I've listened to all the Orthodox speakers and have started Archimandrite Taft's session. What are your thoughts thus far? I love Metropolitan Kallistos but I think Sr. Dr. Larin's talk is my favorite so far.

I prefer Met. Kallistos. That Carl Olsen guy who "can convince anyone of purgatory" is annoying. Sr. Dr. Larin is my second choise. Great lecture.

I have listened through all of them.

I liked Sr. Vassa Larin and Robert Taft. Both were scholarly without being inaccessible, and both were honest about the problems they addressed. Taft rambled somewhat.

I didn't care for FM-G or the Greek Catholic layman.

Neither +Kallistos or the Roman Catholic speaker stood out to me.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

I didn't care for Frederica Matthewes-Green's talk, either. She seems like a very nice lady but her talk seemed better suited to a group of people curious about Orthodoxy and who don't have much knowledge about it. I don't mean to discredit her, there is obviously a niche for her and one I'm sure she's successful in... but it just seemed out of place here.

Interesting. I seem to recall liking FM-G's talk better than most of the others.
