Eastern Christianity in the Middle East: January-March Course at Oxford

Centre for Continuing Education, Rewley House, Wellington Square, Oxford
 

Anthony O’Mahony

Director of the Centre for Eastern Christianity, Heythrop College, University of London and Research Fellow, Blackfriars, University of Oxford

 

This series of lectures explores the traditions, histories and contemporary context of Eastern Christianity in the Middle East. The modern Middle East has been a challenging environment for Christians and their churches – a period marked by the ending of the Ottoman Empire, colonialism and the creation of nation states; by genocide and displacement, interreligious conflict.

Christianity in the Middle East is complex and diverse, characterized by deep and rich religious and spiritual resources – Armenian, Coptic, Syriac. Despite challenges the Christian churches in the region have responded beyond survival with a profound and significant contribution to theology, spirituality and dialogue between religions.

From 11.00am – 12.30pm

Coffee/tea is provided before each lecture, from 10.30am
