The Two Become One? Mixed Marriages in the Orthodox Church Webinar
The Orthodox Theological Society in America (OTSA) is hosting a webinar on “The Two Become One? Mixed Marriages in the Orthodox Church” on May 29, 2021 at 1:00 PM EDT. The webinar will focus on the book “Mixed Marriage: An Orthodox History” by Fr. Anthony Roeber, PhD.
Fr Roeber's excellent book offers a lucid and fascinating history of marriage and its relationship to the Church, the authority of the bishop, pastoral practice in relation to the administration of the Mysteries (how can a couple sharing in the sacrament of Orthodox marriage not be allowed thereafter to share in the Eucharist from which it flows?) and how that important, but often ill-defined term of oikonomia can address the issue of mixed marriage today. The study's strength is that it looks to the historical documentation of what happened in relation to mixed marriage in Orthodox past history, rather than following what is vaguely 'supposed' to have happened.
Panelists featured include:
Fr. Anthony Roeber, Ph.D.
Dr. Vigen Guroian
Deacon Nicholas Denysenko, Ph.D
Dr. Despina Prassas
