Fordham University Orthodox Christian Studies Program
New York, New York
The mission of the Orthodox Christian Studies Program
at Fordham University is to "provide a venue for the academic study of Eastern
Orthodox Christianity that is enriching not only for students and faculty, but for
the Orthodox and non-Orthodox communities in New York and around the country."
Helped to sponsor the 2006 and 2008 installments
of the Orthodoxy in America lecture series. This annual lecture series is the
largest of its kind and only one housed in a university setting. The 2006 speaker
was Dr. Albert Raboteau, an African-American Orthodox professor from Princeton University.
The 2008 speaker was Dr. Susan Ashbook-Harvey, professor of Religious Studies at Brown
University, who specializes in late antique and Byzantine Christianity, with Syriac studies
as her particular area of interest.
