INDS7100 The Ecumenical Movement – The Sources

The Ecumenical Movement that started in the second half of the 19th century does not constitute an ideology but rather reflects the authentic commitment to reconcile divided Christians in the unity of the Church and the reality of communion. Throughout the past century, the quest for Christian unity has assumed many shapes and forms that may be studied through major documents produced along the history of the 20th century and beyond. This course will define the boundaries of Ecumenism and its challenges for contemporary Orthodoxy by looking inward as well as outward as faithful and thoughtful Christians.

This course will be taught by Rev. Dr. Nicolas Kazarian and facilitated by the Huffington Ecumenical Institute at HCHC.

Note: The scheduling of this course is yet to be determined. It will be taught in the spring as an intensive 14-week program.
