With the blessing and in presence of His Grace Bishop Luke of Western Europe, protopresbyter-stavrophor Dr. Radomir Popovic participated at the International scientific conference organized by the Faculty of Theology in Barcelona.
Professor Popovic talked about Christology at Ecumenical Councils on 8 October 2014. The international scientific conference helped the Serbian Orthodox community in Barcelona, which has been functioning for two decades under the omophorion (bishop’s pall) of Bishop Luke of Western Europe, to present itself to the wider Catalonian public. Its wholehearted support got in protopresbyter-stavrophor Radomir Popovic, who presented in Barcelona the Faculty of Orthodox Theology of the University of Belgrade and the Serbian Patriarchate.
