Conference at St. Hildas College, Oxford
13-15 September 2013
conference featured many eminent speakers, including the former Archbishop
of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, Professor Roger Scruton, and the
composer Sir John Tavener, who was commissioned by the Temenos Academy
to write a new work, 'Mahavakyas', to mark the event. He dedicated
it to the memory of the poet, Kathleen Raine, who was one of the co-founders
of the Academy and the driving force behind much of its work until
her death in 2003.
The conference opened with a video address by the Patron of the Academy,
HRH The Prince of Wales.
