In This Issue: Paschal Greetings | Chairs Speak | 2019 Conference Start/ End Times
Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!
In this Paschal Season, we are delighted to share the good news that IOTA has received nearly 250 submissions in response to our Call for Papers. The proposals came from professionals, scholars, and church leaders from over THIRTY COUNTRIES, including Brazil, Hong Kong, Kenya, Lebanon, and New Zealand. The participation of the applicants from France, Germany, Greece, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States was particularly strong. The steering committees of twenty-five IOTA groups are presently completing the review process. The applicants will be notified in May and the conference program will be finalized in summer.
over fifteen IOTA leaders share their common vision for the creation of the Orthodox Christian Republic of Letters, which would serve as a vehicle of Pan-Orthodox unity and help the Church to grapple with the challenges of our time.
