Problems of Slavonic Philosophy Discussed at Ostroh Academy

October 31, 2008

On 29-31 October this year the International Scientific and Practical Conference Faith and Mind In the History of Slavonic Philosophy (430th memorial of Meletii Smotrytskyi) took place in Ostroh Academy National University as a part of the celebrations dedicated to the 432nd anniversary of Ostroh Academy.

The period of Ukrainian Middle-Age Renaissance remains little researched though Ukrainian spiritual and cultural renascence gave Ukraine many outstanding figures, including Meletii Smotrytskyi. This figure has not yet acquired a notable position in the history and consciousness of the Ukrainian people, though some improvements in this regard. Ostroh Academy made great contribution to make Meletii Smotrytskyi known since his early active professional activity was closely connected to OA.

Modern Ukrainian scholars and guests from Poland participated in the conference, including the representatives of Rzeszow University. Petro Kraliuk, Doctor of Philosophy, professor of Ostroh Academy National University, Mykhailo Kashuba, Doctor of Philosophy, professor of Ivan Franko Lviv National University, Ihor Zakhara, Candidate of Philosophy, associate professor of Ivan Franko Lviv National University took part in the plenary meeting. The reports at the meeting unveiled the role of Meletii Smotrytskyi in the development of Ukrainian culture of the early 17th century, dilemmas of faith and mind in Ukrainian culture of the first national renascence and philosophy of Ukrainian baroque.

During the conference Petro Kraliuk made a presentation of his new book Meletii Smotrytskyi and Ukrainian Spiritual and Cultural Renaissance of the late 16th – early 17th centuries.
