“Let Us Exercise In the Field of Scripture: The Correspondence between Augustine and Jerome for Orthodox Biblical Scholarship,” a presentation by Dr. John Fotopoulos presented by St. Photios National Shrine - Tuesday, June 15th, the Feast Day of Saint Augustine of Hippo, from 7-8 PM EST.
Rev. Briggs Andrew Hurley of the Roman Catholic Diocese of St.
Augustine will provide a response to Dr. Fotopoulos’ presentation, from a Roman Catholic perspective. The event is hosted online by the Department of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
The event will include live audience questions. For those who miss the live broadcast, the Shrine will archive this unique event on its website and Facebook page.
The webinar is part of a dual observance shared between the Saint Photios Shrine and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Augustine. Both Orthodox Christians and Roman Catholics celebrate the memory of the prolific theologian of the fourth century, Saint Augustine of Hippo, though on different days. His legacy in Eastern and Western Christian traditions is markedly different. On August 28, the observance of the saint’s memory in the Roman Catholic Church, the Diocese of Saint Augustine will reciprocate in events as yet to be determined.
