We survey some recent results concerning projective configuration theorems in the spirit of the classical theorems of Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, ... We hope that this modern take on the old theorems makes this evergreen topic fresh again. We connect configuration theorems to completely integrable systems, identities in Lie algebras of motion, modular group, and other subject of contemporary interest.
