Orthodox Christian Studies Center

Promoting Christian Unity

Saints John and Bartholomew

The Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University connects an archipelago of cultures, religious traditions, and academic disciplines to advance awareness and knowledge of Orthodox Christianity in public discourse. In its distinctive relationship to Roman Catholicism through the Jesuit tradition of Fordham University, as well as its location in New York City, the Orthodox Christian Studies Center is uniquely poised to engage ecumenical discussion and to foster Christian unity. 
 
The Center supports scholarship and builds intellectual community through wide-ranging initiatives including: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)-supported research fellowships, the Patterson Triennial Conference on Orthodox/Catholic Dialogue, the annual Orthodoxy in America Lecture, and an undergraduate minor in Orthodox Christian Studies.
 
The Center also provides four distinctive avenues for academic publishing: Public Orthodoxy, the Journal of Orthodox Christian Studies, the Orthodox Christianity and Contemporary Thought book series, and the Christian Arabic Texts in Translation book series.

The Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University works closely with the Theology Department and the Center for Medieval Studies in order to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Orthodox Christianity. The Center collaborates nationally and internationally in institutional partnerships with the Black Sea Networks at Columbia University, the Sacred Arts Initiative of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary, and the Volos Academy for Theological Studies.

Our Orthodox Christian Visual and Performing Arts Series is supported, in part, by a grant from the Virginia H. Farah Foundation and the Cottonwood Foundation.
