Inaugural Conference of the International Orthodox Theology Association, 9-12 January 2019

The Inaugural Conference of the International Orthodox Theological Association will take place in Iasi, Romania on 9-13 January 2019. The event has the support of the leadership of the Romanian Orthodox Church. In addition, the leaders of other Orthodox Churches look favorably upon the endeavor. The Inaugural Conference will begin on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, with a Te Deum Service offered by the Archbishop of Iasi and Metropolitan of Moldavia and Bukovina Teofan at the Metropolitan Cathedral at 17:15 (address: Bulevardul Ștefan cel Mare și Sfânt 16, Iași 700064, Romania).

The overarching theme of the Inaugural Conference is Pan-Orthodox Unity and Conciliarity. In response to our Call for Papers, we have received 250 proposals from scholars from over thirty countries, including Brazil, Hong Kong, Kenya, Lebanon, and New Zealand. The participation of scholars from Greece, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States was especially strong. Fifty Conference Sessions will feature the work of 300+ church leaders, scholars, and professionals. In terms of output and international representation, the Inaugural Conference promises to become the largest gathering of Orthodox intellectuals in modern history.
