This seminar will focus on the renewal of conciliarity in the Orthodox Church from the early 20th century leading to the Great and Holy Council. Following a review of the earlier Councils and their characteristics, students will examine the relationship of conciliarity, primacy and the People of God through a review of key documents and related theological studies. Particular attention will be given to the role of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in promoting unity and witness. Prerequisites: CHST 5011 and CHST 5022
