We are pleased to make mention of this very special event once more:

Symposium on the life and work of Baroness Adelma von Vay

KUD Logos publishing (International journal for postsecular theoria, poesis and praxis) has recently released the Slovenian translation of the book Spirit, Power, And Matter, originally published in 1870 and written with the help of automatic writing by the then 29-year old Baroness von Adelma von Vay (1840-1925), from Slovenske Konjice (Gonobitz).

Although at the time Baroness Adelma von Vay enjoyed world fame, till recently her life and work were practically unknown in Slovenia. That is why the Institute for the Study of Christian tradition and the Municipality of Slovenske Konjice decided to organize, along with the publication of the translation of her fundamental work, a two-day international symposium dedicated to the life and work of this extraordinary woman.

The symposium will be held on 3 and 4 December 2012, at two locations:

1. Day one at the National University Library in Ljubljana and
2. Day two at the Žiče monastery near Slovenske Konjice.

The organizers would like to collect the widest possible range of topics covering many aspects of the life and work of Baroness Adelma von Vay. The symposium will be divided into three main themes:

1) Biography and history
2) Philosophical system in the book Spirit, Power, And Matter
3) Occultism and healing

All interested are cordially invited to attend the symposium with their contributions.
