Плакат Ваня Лозанова Станчева 2Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the lecture 'Mystery of Creation: to the interpretation of an orphic cup' that will be delivered by Prof. Vanya Lozanova-Stancheva, D.A. on April 17, 2018 at 16h30 at the IBSCT - BAS. This is second event within the cycle initiated by the IBSCT. Interesting topics will be presented each second Tuesday of the month.

The lecture of Prof. Vanya Lozanova-Stancheva, D.A. 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.
