Dr. John P. Burgess, James Henry Snowden Professor of Systematic Theology, will be leading a lecture series On Eastern Christian Spirituality at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, hosted through the office of Continuing Education.
Much of North American Protestantism has lost a sense of God’s holiness breaking into the world among us. In this course, we will explore how Eastern Christianity (Orthodoxy) can help North American Protestants come to a deeper experience of the Triune God. Students will become familiar with the Orthodox liturgy and church calendar, with practices of fasting, praying with icons and relics, and making pilgrimage to holy sites. The instructor will draw from his sabbatical experiences in Russia in 2011-12. /
