Lecture by Dr. Alexis Torrance (University of Thessaloniki) The Concept of a Person in Modern Orthodox Theology.

SOURCE: Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary

On Thursday, March 14, 2013, Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary hosted a lecture on the concept of the person in Orthodox theology, presented by Alexis Torrance, D.Phil. (Oxon.), a patristics scholar and the author of a recent monograph "Repentance in Late Antiquity: Eastern Asceticism and the Framing of Christian Life" (Oxford University Press, 2012), who currently is a Research Fellow at the University of Thessaloniki (Greece). In his lecture, Dr Torrance focused on the trinitarian and christological foundations of the Orthodox understanding of the personhood, and addressed some of the misconceptions regarding the human person in modern theology. The lecture was attended by the Very Rev. Archimandrite Luke, Rector of the Seminary, seminarians from different years, and by some people from the local community.
