The Wheaton Center for Early Christian Studies offers a spring lecture titled “Orthodox-Evangelical Dialogue: What Have We to Learn from One Another?” delivered by His Excellency, the Most Reverend Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia.
Metropolitan Kallistos (Timothy Ware) was the titular Bishop of Diokleia, an assistant bishop in the Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain (under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople) and in 2007 he was raised to the rank of Metropolitan. For almost forty years Metropolitan Kallistos taught in the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford as Spalding Lecturer in Eastern Orthodox Studies and has been active in work for Christian unity. Among his most well-known books are The Orthodox Church and The Orthodox Way.
The lecture is free and open to the public, and takes place at 7 p.m. Monday, February 21 in Barrows Auditorium, located in the east wing of the Billy Graham Center at 500 College Avenue (campus map).
