About the Project:
Florence and the Idea of Jerusalem is an academic international ecumenical project coordinated by Msgr. Timothy Verdon, Director of the Florence Cathedral Foundation Museum and Art Historian in the Stanford University Florence Program, together with Prof. Alexei Lidov, a Byzantinist of Moscow State University, with the participation of the Community of Jesus, a Protestant monastic family based in the USA and in Italy, and of the Ars et Fides Association of the Catholic Archdiocese of Florence, of the Diocesan Office for Sacred Art (Florence) and of the Theological Faculty of Central Italy. The initiative, which is part of the millennial celebrations for the Abbey of San Miniato al Monte (1018-2018), is supported by Fieldstead and Company, of Irvine, California.
The project has four components: an academic conference in which Italian, European and Russian scholars will take part, as well as representatives of Florence’s Catholic, Orthodox and Jewish communities; an exhibit of works by the Catholic artist Filippo Rossi and the Protestant Susan Kanaga; concerts of sacred music performed by the Gloriae Dei Cantores (USA); and free visits to the city’s ‘Jerusalem’ sites (the Rucellai chapel at San Pancrazio, San Minato al Monte, etc.), conducted by the volunteer guides of Ars et Fides Firenze.
