Father Peter's article in Serbian journal
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:43:46 AM »
I was very pleased to learn today that my article, The Christology of St Severus of Antioch, has been translated and published in the reputable Serbian Orthodox magazine Teološki pogledi (Theological views) which is published by the Holy Synod of bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The article had been reviewed by the editorial board whose members include current Serbian theologians such as His Grace Metropolitan Amfilohije, and His Grace Bishop Atanasije Rakita.

Teološki pogledi has been considering extending their usual content of Eastern Orthodox theological writers to include contributions from the Oriental Orthodox communion, and I was pleased to have been contacted some little while ago to be asked for my permission to include this article on The Christology of St Severus of Antioch in a future edition. This has now been published and Teološki pogledi and its editor, Father Aleksandar Djakovac, have expressed a desire to continue to publish articles related to Oriental Orthodox Christology.

I think this is a wonderful opportunity to be able to explain and describe our Orthodox Faith in some detail to the theologically literate members of the Serbian Orthodox Church. I shall be trying to compile a list of Orthodox writers from all of the various Churches in our Communion who would perhaps wish and be able to contribute a theological paper on the subject of our Christology.

This article, and many others, is available in my book, Orthodox Christology, which is available here...

Christ is risen!

Many years!

I've seen some things done by Armenians in Russian.  I wonder how extensive that is, as it is the only area where it seems the language barrier in the East has been broached, outside of Arabic.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

This is great! I am very glad many members of the Serbian Church are willing to integrate aspects of OO writings into their own tradition. I find that most Serbs are very enthusiastic about a potential reunion with the OO.

May the blessings of our Holy Father Saint Severus be with us all.

The official website of the Serbian Church says:

Metropolitan Jonah meets with Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox Hierarchs
31. August 2009 - 11:16
 Recently, Metropolitan Jonah of the OCA met with hierarchs from the Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox (otherwise known as the Oriental Orthodox) communion. What does this mean for unity between the communions? Not much right now, but it is always good to see dialogue between the two.
For those who are not familiar with what happened 1600 years ago, the Orthodox Church underwent a schism that has lasted up until the present day. It was split into those who accepted the Council of Chalcedon in 451 and those who rejected it. Without getting into the all the details of the council itself, most theologians admit that the differences that split the two are non-issues now and were more linguistic in nature than theological.

While this latest meeting is not taking place on an official world-wide scale, it is proof that there is mutual knowledge of both groups and there is at least talking taking place. Both churches have much in common, having maintained the same Apostolic faith, but have different cultural manifestations of it. Both sides eagerly look for the day when there is re-establishment of communion between the two. Below is a copy of the article from the OCA website.
SYOSSET, NY [OCA Communications] -- On August 13, 2009, a delegation of Oriental Orthodox bishops and priests visited His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah at the OCA Chancery here.
The delegation, which was led by His Eminence, Archbishop Khajag Barsamian, Primate of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, included His Eminence Archbishop Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim, Prelate of the Syriac Orthodox Church in the United States. The Very Rev. David Bebawy represented the Coptic Orthodox Church.
The delegation visited Saint Sergius Chapel at the Chancery, where they were offered a brief history of the OCA Chancery. After a meaningful discussion on different issues of mutual interest, Metropolitan Jonah hosted a luncheon for the delegation, during which the visiting hierarchs expressed gratitude for their visit.
Metropolitan Jonah also was invited to be a guest of Archbishop Khajag Barsamian at the Armenian Diocesan Headquarters in New York in early September.

Selam lekulekemu  :)
This is excellent, I am looking forward to reading it, when it comes in 3-5 days. Thank you father :)

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!
