Плакат пролет 2018 извадка1234On April 17, 2018 at 16h30 at the Institute of Balkan Studies Prof. Vanya Lozanova-Stancheva, D.A. will give a lecture on: Mystery of Creation: to the interpretation of an orphic cup.

The paper offers an interpretation of a mystical orphic cup that is decorated with elaborate doctrinal scenes and verses. Although they function in vast numbers of written texts, the orphic ideas, being mysterious and therefore non-explitic, remain a system of allegories, symbols and meanings, inaccessible or rather foreign to the unacquainted. The orphic ἱερὸς λόγος is more of a visual representation of a sense system that allows movement / transcoding of the myth-ritual to the dramaturgical-performative structure as expressed through the image-word complex of this mysterious orphic cup.
This lecture is part of the events’ cycle ‘Each Second Tuesday’.
