Eastern Christianity in Interfaith Contexts

We are pleased to announce the launch of an international Reading Group on Eastern Christianity in Interfaith Contexts which will explore this diverse topic, including its interfaith contexts.

Eastern Christianity has always had a wide geographical spread, and today it is represented on all five continents. Its rich spiritual traditions are transmitted in many different languages and take on various forms, in some cases shaped by different cultural backgrounds.

One of the main aims of the Reading Group will be to explore, utilizing selected readings, aspects of the religious thought of Eastern Christianity, infused with mysticism and martyrdom, together with the variety of its ancient church traditions.

The Group will meet once a month via Zoom for an hour to discuss a specific theme related to Eastern Christianity. An invited speaker would introduce and read a short text circulated previously to those who had registered for that session. An open discussion will follow the presentation.
