Eastern Christian Studies lecture series

Sankt Ignatios College, Stockholm School of Theology is delighted to announce a new series of public lectures for the autumn term. Each lecture will seek to provide an accessible “introduction” to one of the main themes of our studies here at Sankt Ignatios and will be delivered by one of our teachers, an acknowledged expert in that field. You can see the program below.

These lectures are compulsory for Pastoral-pedagogical and Religious Educator program students and optional for all other students. Students will be able to find the link to the lecture in Canvas email 30 minutes before the lecture begins.

We’ll do our best to make the lectures available to the public online. We intend to film the lectures, so the lectures will be available later on our YouTube channel. If you would like to watch the lecture on October 1 live online, please fill in the form below and send it back to us with your email address. We will send a Zoom link to you 30 minutes before the lecture begins.

We hope through this lecture series to widen the public appreciation and understanding of Eastern Christian studies and to show something of the variety and dynamism of the teaching and research conducted here. In particular we hope that these talks will inspire interest in those who have perhaps been thinking about studying the Christian tradition, particularly from an Orthodox perspective. We look forward to seeing you there.
