Ecumenism: Orientale Lumen

Byzantine Online is pleased to partner with the Orientale Lumen Foundation to offer an online, one credit class called DT 105:  Ecumenism: Orientale Lumen.  This online course offers videotaped presentations of keynote speakers and discussions from the 2018 Orientale Lumen Conference (June 18-21, Washington, DC), an annual conference dedicated to Catholic-Orthodox dialogue in hopes, “that they all may be one” (John 17:21).  This year’s conference is entitled, “Sister Churches: Fact or Fiction among the Laity.”

Students enrolled in this class for credit will virtually experience the conference
speakers as well as roundtable and panel discussions and prepare a paper in
conjunction with faculty-led readings and discussions which focus on ecumenism.
Students will learn the following:

  • Engagement with current state of Catholic-Orthodox dialogue
  • Familiarity with timely ecumenical topics
  • Modes of dialogue with significant theological issues from Catholic and Orthodox

The cost to take this online course for credit is $410 or audit for $310. In addition, anyone who attended the actual conference in person but wanted to take the course and receive credit would pay half price, or $205.  Registration will open in May; the course will launch Monday, July 2, 2018.
