East-West Monastic Meeting II, Minster Abbey, Autumn 1998

The Orientale Lumen movement in England was initiated as a series of East-West Christian Monastic Meetings by the community of Roman Catholic Benedictine nuns at Minster Abbey. The first took place in 1996 at St Mildred's Priory, Minster Abbey, Kent; the second in 1998.

The Meeting included a celebration of the Leave-Taking of the Holy Cross at the Orthodox parish in Margate. The talks included
  • Monasticism in Egypt, Fr Asheia al-Baramosy, a Coptic Orthodox priest-monk from the recently founded Coptic community at Birchington, Kent. This was an illustrated address on his home monastery and the revival of monasticism in Egypt
  • Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Abbot Hugh of Pluscarden
  • Repentance in the Rule of St Benedict, Mother Mary John OSB, Malling Abbey, Kent
  • Saint Maria Skobtsiva among the poor in the Paris of World War II, Dr Philip Boobyer, University of Kent at Canterbury
  • Prisoners of Conscience in 20th Century Russia: Suffering and Spirituality, Dr Philip Boobyer
  • The Cosmology of St Maximus the Confessor, Fr Maximus, Greek Orthodox Church
A short account of the Meeting was subsequently given by Sister Benedict Gaughan OSB in One in Christ, volume 40, no. 3, April 2005.
