Marian Simion, Adjunct Instructor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Hellenic College, will be teaching a course entitled "War and Peacemaking in Orthodox Christianity" this semester. He is the Assistant Director of The Boston Theological Institute (a consortium of eight departments or schools of theology in colleges and universities in the Boston area), a field education supervisor at Harvard Divinity School and also teaches Peace Studies at the Boston College Department of Theology. With an educational background in Orthodox Theology from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and theological studies in his native Rumania, as well as being a PhD candidate in political science at Northeastern University, he is able to bring a unique perspective to his specialty. This subject of war, violence and peacemaking, from the perspective of Orthodox Christianity, is particularly relevant in contemporary society given the religious and ethnic conflicts we face. He founded the Institute for Peace Studies in Eastern Christianity in 2008 and recently co-edited, with Dr. Rodney Peterson, Director of The Boston Theological Institute, a book entitled "Overcoming Violence: Religion, Conflict and Peacebuilding."
