In March 2008, Enid members Georgios Kordis and Henrik v. Achen received funding, 35.000 Euros, for a joint project with the University Museum in Bergen. The project was to make a 30 min. film about the practices and instruments connected with the pilgrimage to Our Lady of the Annunciation on the island of Tinos, the most popular Marian pilgrim site in Greece. Together with anthropologist Dr. Frode Storås from Bergen Museum, filming took place 10th-22nd August. The film was shown publicly on a university conference in Bergen on the 26th March 2010.
The FIRST eNID anthology published
The introductory collection of articles by ENID-members was published on 22 November 2007 by Århus Unipress, Denmark. The anthology 'Instruments of devotion' presents 11 articles by Enid members, and is edited by Henning Laugerud (Oslo, Norway) and Laura Katrine Skinnebach (Bergen, Norway).
New website open for ENID-network
On the day before Ash Wednesday, 24th February 2004, the web pages of ENID were formally opened and placed on the net.
The web pages intend to combine simplicity with functionality. They must be easy to use, easy to understand, and not contain too much to slow down the navigation.
Though a few areas are still under construction, by and large the web pages are finished, presenting Enid and its work to the benefit of the network itself, but also, hopefully, to the benefit of the society of scholars, and of all people interested in the history of Christian piety and its expressions.
Given time, we hope that the pages will develop in quality, size and usefulness, through accumulation of relevant information.
