International Conference on the Theological Legacy of Archpriest George Florovsky

The Ecumenical Patriarchate is organizing an International Conference in Istanbul, titled “The theological legacy of Archpriest George Florovsky,” Sept. 1-3, 2019, on the 40-year anniversary of his passing.  His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will inaugurate the International Conference which will be attended by hierarchs, clergy, distinguished university professors and theologians from universities from around the world. 

It is noted that Fr. George Florovsky was a groundbreaking theologian and professor, and has been called the “rector of Orthodox theologians” in the 20th century.  His inspiring appeal to the theologians to return to the patristic springs and to acquire the spirit of the Church Fathers; and to the Church to engage the powerful historical and ecumenical challenges of our time, was a landmark for Orthodox theology and influence Christian thought to this day.  The Conference will be streamed live on the Internet.
