The Fr. Georges Florovsky Orthodox Christian Theological Society is a graduate student organization of Princeton University. Its purpose is to promote the study of the life and work of Fr. Georges Florovsky and of Orthodox Christian theology in general in the context of Fr. Florovsky's emphasis on a return to Orthodox Christianity's patristic roots.
Fr. Florovsky was an eminent Orthodox Christian theologian and Russian emigré intellectual who spent his last years teaching at Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary, and died in Princeton in 1979. He is recognized as one of the most important Orthodox theologians of the twentieth century and a key figure of the Russian philosophical and cultural tradition.
In addition to the regular meetings of the patristic reading group, we will be hosting the third annual patristic symposium in honor of Fr. Georges Florovsky on February 15 and 16, 2013. The theme is What is the Bible? The Patristic Doctrine of Scripture. Online registration is now open, with a special discount available until December 1. Please e-mail us with questions.
