Fordham Orthodox Christian Studies Center 2021 Lenten Lecture Series
Orthodox Scholars Preach
The Orthodox Christian Studies Center, in partnership with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros, is pleased to announce the launch of the new video series "Orthodox Scholars Preach." The goal of the series is to provide a platform for Orthodox scholars to reflect on the spiritual themes of the liturgical calendar while drawing on their expertise. The series provides 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.
The series debuts with weekly sermons for Sundays of the Triodion and culminates in Holy Week and Pascha. Videos will be released on our YouTube channel on Fridays, so be sure to subscribe to receive notifications.
