Orthodox Quote of the Week (153)

One may have a good worldly relationship with non-believers, but one cannot have a relationship in prayer and one must not carry on arguments about religion so that the name of God not be offended during an argument.

St. Nektary of Optina

    О КУРСЕ

    Данный курс предназначен для филологов-германистов и ставит целью овладение учащимися религиозной лексикой и дискурсом английского языка. Преимущественная направленность курса – миссионерская. Это означает, что навыки и умения, вырабатываемые в рамках курса, применимы прежде всего для диалогического ознакомления иноязычной инославной аудитории с Православной церковью, ее историей, вероучением, богослужебной и аскетической жизнью. Вместе с тем, курс предполагает ознакомление с религиозной проблематикой и ситуацией в инославных странах и конфессиях в терминах английского религиозно-общественного дискурса.

    С учетом этих целей курс включает несколько тематических разделов. Это:

    1. «Храм и богослужение» (Temple and Worship). Здесь учащиеся знакомятся на английском языке с устройством православного храма, строем богослужения, смыслом и формой Таинств, православным календарем. В рамках практической литургики целиком прочитывается текст Литургии Свт. Иоанна Златоуста на английском языке и предлагаются аудиозаписи отрывков англоязычного богослужения.

    2. Раздел «Священное Писание» (Bible Studies) знакомит студентов с составом английской Библии, с названиями всех книг Ветхого и Нового Заветов. Читается Евангелие от Марка с комментариями блаженного Феофилакта Болгарского на английском языке (перевод с английского на русский и обратно).

    3. «История Церкви» (Church History). Чтение, комментированный перевод, пересказ книги митрополита Каллиста (Ware) The Orthodox Church (History).

    4. «Догматическое и сравнительное богословие» (Dogmatic and Comparative Theology). Вероучение Православной Церкви, суть древних ересей, вероучение инославных сообществ.

    5. «Церковный этикет» (Church Etiquette): формы обращения к духовенству, титулы глав автокефальных Церквей .

    6. Аудирование: ответы на вопросы и обсуждение радиопередач по религиозной тематике (Ancient Faith Radio и другие источники). Британский и американский варианты английского языка. Данный раздел курса позволяет развить навыки восприятия на слух неадаптированной речи носителей языка и одновременно познакомиться с актуальными проблемами религиозной и общественной жизни англоязычных стран (прежде всего США и Великобритании).

    Автор курса исходит из того, что условием усвоения лексики является ее восприятие в естественном речевом контексте. Поэтому курс строится на принципе экстенсивного чтения и аудирования. Одновременно в начале каждого занятия предлагаются короткие тесты по материалу предыдущего занятия (письменный перевод слов с русского на английский).

    Эффективным приемом овладения лексикой является ее использование в самостоятельно создаваемых контекстах. Поэтому другой формой повторения пройденного и контроля успеваемости является еженедельное задание на составление оригинальных предложений или текстов с использованием изученных слов. Созданные студентами тексты после проверки публикуются на соответствующих страницах этого сайта ("Text Bank").

    Курс построен таким образом, что по мере продвижения от младших курсов к старшим студентам предоставляется все меньше возможности заработать баллы за механическое запоминание слов (еженедельные тесты) и все больше - за творческие задания на составление предложений и написание эссе. В рамках семестра на эти виды заданий отсутствуют жесткие сроки выполнения, следовательно, от студентов старших курсов ожидается академическая инициативность, способность управлять своим временем и планировать результаты работы.



    СИСТЕМА АТТЕСТАЦИИ
    (бакалавриат)

    Максимальное количество баллов за семестр = 100. Из них максимальное количество за текущую работу в течение семестра = 70, максимальное за зачет (экзамен) = 30.

    Текущие баллы складываются из следующих составляющих:

    1. Посещаемость занятий. Количество баллов за посещение одного занятия рассчитывается исходя из фактического количества занятий в данном семестре и максимально возможного количества баллов за период (обычно 0,5-0,7 балла за одно занятие). Максимально возможное количество баллов по этому аспекту текущей аттестации за семестр = 10.
    2. Еженедельные тесты по изученной лексике: письменный перевод слов/словосочетаний/определений с русского языка на английский. 0,25 балла за каждое правильно переведенное слово/словосочетание или фонетическую транскрипцию, 0,5 балла за догматическое определение. "Правильность" включает употребление, грамматическое управление (артикли, предлоги и т.д.) и правописание.
    3. Регулярные тесты по разделам книги The Orthodox Church (0,25 балла за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание).
      В случае объективно низкого результата теста (менее 61% правильных ответов) студенту предлагается написать этот тест повторно. Результаты (баллы) первого написания в этом случае аннулируются.
    4. Еженедельные задания на составление предложений с использованием изученной лексики. 0,5 баллов за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание.
      За составление предложений в виде связного текста начисляется 1 дополнительный балл.
      Внимание! Каждое использованное слово/словосочетание засчитывается только один раз. Засчитываются только те слова религиозной семантики, которые изучаются в данной части курса и предложены для усвоения, а не вообще любые использованные слова религиозной семантики. Не засчитываются также слова и выражения общего (не религиозного) употребления, встречающиеся в изучаемых текстах. Составленные вами предложения должны содержать исторически, богословски и духовно достоверные (истинные) утверждения. В противном случае они засчитываться не будут.
      ВНИМАНИЕ! Используемые слова и словосочетания в ваших предложениях следует набирать ЗАГЛАВНЫМИ БУКВАМИ.
    5. Письменные короткие эссе на тему цитат из святых отцов (для 3 и 4 курсов). Максимум 5 баллов за одно эссе.
      Эти баллы складываются из двух составляющих: 2,5 балла за содержание и 2,5 балла за грамотность.
           Требования к содержанию:
                1. Объем - не менее двух абзацев.
                2. Эссе должно быть непосредственно связано с содержанием и смыслом цитаты, а не представлять собой рассуждение на смежные темы.
                3. Желательны конкретные примеры.
                4. Обязательно употребление слов религиозной тематики, которые должны использоваться правильно по смыслу и правописанию.
           Требования к грамотности:
                за грамматические, пунктуационные, орфографические, стилистические и лексические ошибки баллы снижаются по следующей схеме (при максимальном балле за содержание):
      0-1 ошибка = 5 баллов;
      2-3 ошибки = 4,5 балла;
      4-5 = 4;
      6-7 = 3,5;
      8-9 = 3;
      10-11 = 2,5 балла (максимальный за содержание).

      ВНИМАНИЕ! Прием и обработка эссе и предложений заканчивается в 00 часов первого дня зачетной сессии либо за 72 часа (трое суток) до начала зачета, если зачет попадает на первый - третий день сессии.

    6. Явное или декларируемое отсутствие подготовки по каждому из остальных разделов курса (Biblical Studies, Church History, Listening) влечет за собой вычет 0,5 балла из их общей суммы.
    Простая арифметика доказывает, что лучше посетить занятие, не выполнив домашнее задание по одному-двум аспектам, чем пропустить занятие из-за невыполненного домашнего задания.

    СПРАВКА: Действуют следующие правила перевода баллов в традиционную шкалу оценок:
    91–100 баллов = «Отлично» ("5") = A;
    84–90 баллов = «Очень хорошо» ("4") = B;
    74–83 балла = «Хорошо» ("4") = С;
    68–73 балла = «Удовлетворительно» ("3") = D;
    61–67 баллов = «Посредственно» ("3") = E;
    51–60 баллов = «Неудовлетворительно» ("2", НЕЗАЧЕТ) = Fx;
    50 и меньше баллов = «Неудовлетворительно» ("2", НЕЗАЧЕТ)= F.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (151)

    The crucified flesh reconciles itself with the spirit and with God; whilst the flesh that is cherished, that is abundantly and daintily fed, fights hard against the spirit and against God...

    It is preferable for a sensitive person to die once out of love in order to protect his neighbour, rather than be neglectful or cowardly and then to be constantly tormented by his conscience for the rest of his life.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (149)

    In our time we see that if a person prays a little more than is customary, reads a little of the Psalter, keeps the fast—he already thinks of himself as better than others, he judges his neighbors, and begins to teach without being asked. All this shows his spiritual emptiness, his departure from the Lord. Fear a high opinion of yourself.

    Abbot Nikon Vorobiev
    Source

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (148)

    If the work that you are doing is prolonged, unpleasant, hard, and is someone else's as well, then to keep your soul in a holy and God-pleasing disposition and to protect yourself from any foolish disposition of soul, support yourself while you work with edifying singing, as long as it is not ruled out by the work itself or the place and time. Edifying singing greatly cheers, softens, and calms the soul. If, as is well known, even unedifying, foolish singing during work greatly cheers a person as he works, so much more will edifying singing.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (145)

    Everyone recognizes as vile those who are ungrateful to other people; even more so should we acknowledge as vile those who are ungrateful to the Lord God. The holy Apostle numbers the ingratitude of people among the vices of the people of the last time (II Timothy 3:2), that is, of the most depraved time.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (144)

    Sometimes people call prayer that which is not prayer at all; for instance: a man goes to church, stands there for a time, looks at the icons or at other people, their faces and dress, and says that he has prayed to God; or else he stands before an icon at home, bows his head, says some words he has learnt by heart, without understanding and without feeling, and says that he has prayed, although with his thoughts and heart he has not prayed at all, but was elsewhere with other people and things, and not with God.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (140)

    - Geronda, when someone is not needy but pretends to be, should we help him?
    - Christ said, We should give to him who begs from us without examining. Even if someone who begs from you is not in need, you should still give to him. Be happy in giving to him.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (139)

    Satiety is extremely harmful for the soul. Whoev­er overindulges in food or drink is incapable of spiri­tual exercises and can neither pray nor reflect on any­ thing divine, because excess in food draws a person into laziness, sleepiness, idleness, idle talk, ludicrous behavior, and a great multitude of impure thoughts and desires.

    Metropolitan Gregory (Postnikov) of St. Petersburg
