- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

While their territory has been devastated and their homes despoiled, the spirit of the Serbian people has not been broken.

If you’re a Serb or know one, then you know how much fun a Serbian Festival can be.

If you’re a Serb and love wine, you visit a winery for wine-tasting (and drinking). If you really love wine, chances are you venture to California Wine Country.

You could have the best of both worlds—a Serbian Festival set in California Wine Country—at Opolo Vineyards and Winery in Paso Robles.

Slobodan (Danny) Ćurčić, professor of art and archaeology, emeritus, at Princeton University, and a global authority on Byzantine art and architecture, died Dec. 3 in Thessaloniki, Greece. He was 76.

Ćurčić was a prolific scholar whose work examined a wide spectrum of topics across southeast Europe. Among his areas of focus were late-Roman and early-Christian archaeological remains in Cyprus, Greece and Serbia; decoration of Byzantine-Norman churches in Sicily; and architecture in the Byzantine Balkans from late antiquity to the Ottoman era.

Born Dec. 19, 1940, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (the former Yugoslavia), Ćurčić grew up in Belgrade, Serbia. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and in 1975 received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, writing a dissertation on the Late Byzantine church at Gračanica.

Jesus Christ Is The Same Yesterday Today And Unto the Ages

In this latest and, in every respect, meaningful study, Bishop Athanasius, in the manner of the Holy Fathers, and firmly relying upon the Apostles John and Paul, argues that the Old Testament name of God, “YHWH,” a revealed to Moses at Sinai, was translated by both Apostles (both being Hebrews) into the language of the New Testament in a completely original and articulate manner.  In this sense, they do not follow the Septuagint, in which the name, “YHWH,” appears together with the phrase “the one who is”, a word which is, in a certain sense, a philosophical-ontological translation (that term would undoubtedly become significant for the conversion of the Greeks in the Gospels).  The two Apostles, rather, translate this in a providential, historical-eschatological, i.e. in a specifically Christological sense.  Thus, John carries the word “YHWH” over with “the One Who Is, Who was and Who is to Come” (Rev. 1:8 & 22…), while for Paul “Jesus Christ is the Same Yesterday, Today and Unto the Ages” (Heb. 13:8).
