- Nikola Tesla

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

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.

Notes On Ecumenism

Written in 1972 by St. Abba Justin Popovich, edited by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, translated from Serbian by Aleksandra Stojanovich, and proofread by Fr Miroljub Ruzich

Abba Justin’s manuscript legacy (on which Bishop Athanasius have been working for a couple of years preparing an edition of The Complete Works ), also includes a parcel of sheets/small sheets of paper (in the 1/4 A4 size) with the notes on Ecumenism (written in pencil and dating from the period when he was working on his book “The Orthodox Church and Ecumenism”; there are also references to the writings of St. Bishop Nikolai [Velimirovich], short excerpts copied from his Sermons, some of which were quoted in the book).

The editor presents the Notes authentically, as he has found them in the manuscripts (his words inserted in the text, as clarification, are put between the slashes /…/; all the footnotes are ours).—In the appendix are present the facsimiles of the majority of Abba’s Notes which were supposed to be included in his book On Ecumenism (written in haste then, but now significantly supplemented with these Notes. The Notes make evident the full extent of Justin’s profundity as a theologian and ecclesiologist of the authentic Orthodoxy).—The real Justin is present in these Notes: by his original language, style, literature, polemics, philosophy, theology, and above all by his confession of the God-man Christ and His Church. He confesses his faith, tradition, experience and his perspective on man, on the world and on Europe—invariably in the Church and from the Church, in the God-man Christ and from Him, just as he did in all of his writings and in his entire life and theologizing.
