Hilary Term begins with new students and new modules

(16th January 2015) The Institute's Hilary Term has begun this week, welcoming both new students and a new module into the offerings on our Certificate Program. A handful of new students began mid-year this term, joining an active cohort in our module on The Ancient Scriptures in the Church; and a large, vibrant group of students has set into the Orthodox Liturgical Life and Worship module that we're offering for the first time.


Moving towards Nativity with classes on Christians and the Law, and the Trinity

The Institute is changing the names of our terms

(20th October 2014) To date, the Institute has called its trimesterly terms by simple, seasonal titles: 'Autumn Term', 'Winter Term' and 'Summer Term'. However, since these titles can occasionally be a little misleading, we are renaming our terms along classical lines as 'Michaelmas', 'Hilary' and 'Trinity'. Read more for some information on what these titles mean, and how they correspond to our offerings.


Students attend class on Pentecost with Archpriest Josiah Trenham

(16th October 2014) Students in our Certificate Program in Orthodox Studies by Distance Learning's CS01 module attended a live on-line class led by Archpriest Josiah Trenham on Thursday evening, exploring Pentecost and the theology of the Holy Spirit in Orthodox history and life. Drawing together students from Alaska to S. America, the class provided an opportunity for in-depth, interpersonal discussion about key themes in Orthodox life.
