Professor Yannaras’ research and writings are very significant to our Orthodox faith. As a noted author and philosopher, he has earned the respect of clergy and academi­cians for his work, and we are fortunate to have him visit our Diocese and Cathedral parish. His presentations are always both enlightening, thought-provoking and en­riching to all those who attend.Christos Yannaras is an important author of more than 50 books, many of which have been translated into multiple languages. He was born in Athens in 1935.  He is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the Panteion Univer­sity of Social and Political Sciences. He studied Theology at the University of Ath­ens and Philosophy at the Universities of Bonn and Paris. He holds a doctorate from the Faculty of Theology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.  He also holds a Ph.D. from the Faculté des Lettres et Sciences Humaines of the Sorbonne. He has been nominated Doctor of Philosophy, honoris causa, by the University of Belgrade, St. Vladimir’s Seminary and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. Pro­fessor Yannaras has served as visiting professor at the Universities of Paris, Geneva, Lausanne and Crete.
