Orthodoxy in Dialogue launched as an independent publication in August 2017 to provide a space for the open exchange of ideas relevant to Orthodox Christianity. Reflective of our commitment to Orthodox, ecumenical, and interfaith dialogue, we publish writers who represent a wide spectrum of interests and perspectives both within and outside the Orthodox Church. We occupy a grey zone that straddles the academic and the popular, where everyone who writes reasonably well is invited to find his or her voice on the issues of the day which confront us as Church, as society, and as individuals.
As of December 2017 we rank among the top Orthodox websites on the internet.
The articles and letters published on our pages express solely the views of their respective authors.
Our founding editor is Giacomo Sanfilippo, an Orthodox Christian, PhD student in Theological Studies at Trinity College in the University of Toronto, father of five, grandfather of two, and former priest. He holds a BA in Sexuality Studies (2013) from York University and an MA in Theology (2015) from Regis College/St. Michael’s College, and is an alumnus (2014) of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto. Earlier in life he completed the course requirements for the MDiv (1989) at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary near New York City. He has written for Public Orthodoxy, the Toronto Journal of Theology, Milwaukee Independent, The Wheel, and the Kyiv Post. His MA thesis, “A Bed Undefiled: Foundations for an Orthodox Theology and Spirituality of Same-Sex Love,” can be downloaded at the University of Toronto’s TSpace. You can follow him on Twitter @GiacoSanfilippo.
