Теслини дани целог јула

Tоком целог јула одржаће се манифестација „Тесла дани 2016”, поводом 160 година од рођења славног проналазача и научника Николе Тесле, у оквиру културно-туристичке руте „Путевима Тесле”. Манифестацију организује Кластер путева културе, који окупља више од 40 институција културе, туристичких организација и агенције привредника и шест факултета у Србији, Словенији и Хрватској.

Док је претходних година Теслин рођендан обележаван скромно, ове године, управо због јубилеја, славље ће трајати читав месец и биће обележен бројним изложбама, експериментима, предавањима. „Тесла дане” обележиће пројекције филмова о старим хидроелектранама Електропривреде Србије и филма који су заједно урадили уметници из Србије и Њујорка, који ће истовремено бити приказан у Београду на Аеродрому „Никола Тесла”, у једној галерији у Њујорку и у Народном музеју у Крагујевцу, чиме ће Тесла симболично повезати Србију и Америку.

На сам Теслин рођендан, 10. јула, у Музеју Николе Тесле биће изведен посебан експеримент, а ЕПС ће организовати Тесла собу у којој ће посетиоци моћи да се упознају с Теслиним патентима, решавају задатке и освајају награде. Културна рута „Путевима Тесле” обухвата Музеј Николе Тесле који чува целокупну Теслину заоставштину, затим Београд из угла Николе Тесле, који је научник посетио на само један дан 1892. године, и десет малих електрана ЕПС-а.

Holy Emperor Constantine and the Edict of Milan

by Bishop Athanasius (Yevtich)

In 2013 Christian world celebrates 1700 years since the day when the Providence of God spoke through the holy Emperor Constantine and freedom was given to the Christian faith. Commemorating the 1700 years since the Edict of Milan of 313, Sebastian Press of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church published a book by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, Holy Emperor Constantine and the Edict of Milan. The book has 72 pages and was translated by Popadija Aleksandra Petrovich. This excellent overview of the historical circumstances that lead to the conversion of the first Christian emperor and to the publication of a document that was called "Edict of Milan", was originally published in Serbian by the Brotherhood of St. Simeon the Myrrh-gusher, Vrnjci 2013. “The Edict of Milan” is calling on civil authorities everywhere to respect the right of believers to worship freely and to express their faith publicly.

The publication of this beautiful pocket-size, full-color, English-language book, has been compiled and designed by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, a disciple of the great twentieth-century theologian Archimandrite Justin Popovich. Bishop Athanasius' thought combines adherence to the teachings of the Church Fathers with a vibrant faith, knowledge of history, and a profound experience of Christ in the Church.

In the conclusion of the book, the author states:"The era of St. Constantine and his mother St. Helena, marks the beginning of what history refers to as Roman, Christian Empire, which was named Byzantium only in recent times in the West. In fact, this was the conception of a Christian Europe. Christian Byzantine culture had a critical effect on Europe; Europe was its heir, and then consciously forgot it. Europe inherited many Byzantine treasures, but unfortunately, also robbed and plundered many others for its own treasuries and museums – not only during the Crusades, but during colonial rule in the Byzantine lands as well. We, the Orthodox Slavs, received a great heritage of the Orthodox Christian East from Byzantium. Primarily, Christ’s Gospel, His faith and His Church, and then, among other things, the Cyrillic alphabet, too."
