Byzantine Orthodox Projects
The Byzantine seminary projects offer students a thorough and critical understanding of different Orthodox traditions – Greek and Slavic – based on rigorous academic study and training in pastoral methodology including how to communicate the gospel (preaching and teaching), how to care for members of the community (pastoral care) and how to celebrate the liturgy. We also offer students training in the more aesthetic aspects of the Byzantine Orthodox tradition – in the music of the liturgy and in icon painting. The seminary building is located in a beautiful house in Södertälje, Stockholm. Here, students live together and share their everyday life, discuss their faith and pray together. A seminary chaplain regularly visits the students, providing leadership in the boarding house and supporting the students’ spiritual formation.
