New Edition of The Greek Orthodox Theological Review

The most recent edition of The Greek Orthodox Theological Review, Volume 59, has been sent to subscribers and theological libraries throughout the world.

This volume contains eight scholarly articles addressing a number of significant theological and historical topics related to the life and witness of the Orthodox Church. 

The Review also contains an extensive documents section containing many significant statements including those of His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. Among these are documents related to the recent meetings of Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in Jerusalem and Constantinople.

The editorial is titled Pilgrims for Unity and Witness. It discusses the significance of the recent meetings of the Pope and Ecumenical Patriarch, and the ongoing dialogue between the Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church.  

The Review also includes a memorial page in honor of Fr. Matthew Baker, who died in a tragic accident on March 1, 2015. A graduate of Holy Cross and a thoughtful young scholar, Fr. Matthew submitted to the Review a very perceptive book review shortly before his death. This book review is published in this edition.    

The Greek Orthodox Theological Review was established in 1955. The articles in the Review have examined theological and historical themes, and addressed the critical issues facing the Church today. It has been a valuable journal through which scholarly studies have been shared, new books have been reviewed, and significant documents have been preserved. The content of the Review reflects the rich development of Orthodox theology and theological concerns over the past sixty years. The Review is the only Greek Orthodox theological journal published in the Western hemisphere. 

The Review expresses the mission of Holy Cross to provide theological education, to advance Orthodox theology, and to support the witness of the Church today. The editor of the Review is Rev. Dr. Thomas FitzGerald, Professor of Church History and Historical Theology.  

Past editions of the Review are available at many theological libraries and through the American Theological Library (ATLA) Religion Database. For information on individual subscriptions, contact the office of the Review at gotr@hchc.edu
