The Orthodox Christian Studies Center, Fordham University, in collaboration with the Department of Religious Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and with the blessing of the Archbishop Elpidophoros, is pleased to announce the launch of the Speaker Series: Orthodox Scholars Preach.
Starting today, every week until Pascha, a different Orthodox Scholar will release a new 10-minute video. This Series provides a platform for Orthodox scholars to reflect on the spiritual themes of each Sunday’s liturgical calendar while drawing on their expertise.
The Series offers a space where Orthodox Christians and others interested in Orthodox spirituality can encounter the depth and richness of the tradition through stimulating, theologically-informed preaching by respected and diverse Orthodox scholars.
This Speaker Series debuts with David Bentley Hart, who will preach on the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee
