23 - 30 May 2015 Metochi Study Centre arranged an international seminar on "The Concept of Love".
The seminar was the first in a series of international seminars at Metochi in the years to come, all with a main topic. The first seminar focused on the concept of love – agape, eros – both in antiquity, in the church fathers as well as modern times, and from different perspectives; philosophically, theologically and sociologically.
From the University of Agder there were several contributors, among others Paul Leer-Salvesen, Pål Repstad and Henny Fiskå Hägg. Contibutors from other universities were among others Torstein T. Tollefsen (University of Oslo), Andrew Louth (University of Durham) and Deirdre Carabine (Virtual University of Uganda.
