Fourteen Orthodox Autocephalous Churches meet in Crete in June 2016 to discuss some burning issues related to the life in the Orthodox Church and to recapture their lost synodality / conciliarity. It is well known that the local orthodox churches have not been able to meet together for many centuries. Therefore the Orthodox worldwide as well as ecumenical partners are looking forward to see the first fruits of this historic meeting in Crete.
Three Orthodox theologians, Dr Tamara Grdzelidze (Orthodox Church of Georgia), Dr Bogdan Tataru-Cazaban (Ambassador of Romania, member of the Romanian Orthodox Church) and Dr Dimitrios Keramidas (Orthodox Church of Greece) together with other younger orthodox theologians, Deacon Leonide Ebralidze (Orthodox Church of Georgia), Alexandru Marius Crisan (Orthodox Church of Romania), Nikos-Giorgos Papachristou (Ecumenical Patriarchate) will look at documents which will be discussed in the coming Council in Crete.
The session is open to all interested in the Orthodox Church and Ecumenical Relations.
The working languages will be English and Italian. All participants will prepare a short abstract in another language.
