“For just as bees know how to extract honey from flowers, which to men are agreeable only for their fragrance and color, even so here also those who look for something more than pleasure and enjoyment in such writers may derive profit for their souls. Now, then, altogether after the manner of bees must we use these writings, for the bees do not visit all the flowers without discrimination, nor indeed do they seek to carry away entire those upon which they light, but rather, having taken so much as is adapted to their needs, they let the rest go.” – St. Basil, the Great.

Doxacon Seattle is a conference devoted to the exploration of Christian themes in speculative fiction, such as science fiction and fantasy. We gather in fellowship to discuss our experiences of how our faith influences our perception of the popular culture we consume. Doxacon Seattle is an event appropriate for adults and children aged 12 and above.

The Doxacon Seattle Planning Committee is a group of faithful Christians (most, but not all, are Eastern Orthodox Christians) who wish to expand the mission of Doxacon Prime in the Washington, D.C. area. Doxacon Seattle has been blessed by His Eminence Archbishop BENJAMIN of the Orthodox Church of America.
