Orthodox Theology
« on: August 17, 2009, 10:20:10 AM »
Is there a site (or sites) which explain Orthodox theology? Coming from a Methodist background, I understand that there are differences between Protestant and Orthodox theology?

Thank you.

Here's another online catechism known as The Orthodox Faith Rainbow series by Fr. Thomas Hopko:

http://www.oca.org/OCorthfaith.asp?SID=2
Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.

This is another succinct resource: http://www.ocf.org/OrthodoxPage/reading/catechism.html

The middle third or so contains short paragraphs defining the Orthodox understanding of key doctrines.
