The conference in Toronto was very enjoyable and, I think, generally successful.  I heard many interesting papers, and the reaction to my talk on monotheletism was as good as I could have hoped to receive.  By strange chance, one of the U of T students whom I met was married to a Hampden-Sydney alumnus who finished a couple years ahead of me.  There was even a Eunomia reader among the assembled attendees.  During the trip, I finished Mozawer’s Salonica, which I plan to use for my urban history class next term.  We also heard two concerts organised in conjunction with the conference, and we heard a number of works by the Orthodox composer John Tavener.  The second, which included an adaptation of a prayer of the ninth-century monastic poetess Kassia, was the better in my view, and Patricia Rozario’s performance was very impressive.
