    Course Outlines

    The course focuses on the ecclesiastical history of Bulgaria, Serbia and Russia. We follow the ecclesiastical history with basic stations the periods of Byzantine, Ottoman and the modern era, distinct stations in the political history of these peoples, so that students have a parallel picture of ecclesiastical and political developments. The course identifies diachronic issues and problems that concern to the history of these Churches, to their relations with the Ecumenical Patriarchate and with the Western world. Finally, we note the issue about the relations of the churches with the state, that presents timeless interest as during the 20th century, the churches will face war by the communist regimes, but also the problems that will arise in the life and theology of these churches, from the close relation between nation and Orthodoxy.

    Course Outlines

    This course examines the history of Russia and its relations with the Balkans. It presents the period before the war of Crimea, where Orthodoxy was the common link between Russia and the peoples of the Balkans. Reference is also made to the work of Maximus Grekos, to the ascetic - Philological Faculty of Paisius Velichkovsky, to the drafting of the Slavic "Philokalia", and to the Slavic studies in Halki. In addition, we refer to the "neomartyrologika" and to the period after the Crimean War (1854-1856), when gradually the perception of the inherent extensionality of the Russian state prevails. We present the Russian foreign policy, which is perceived as "panslavic" to the West and as Slavic issue into Russia. Finally the course teaches the action of "Slavism" and gives illustrative narratives about the Russian identity.
