Intensive Weekend Theological Studies: Australia @ St. Athanasius Coptic Orthodox Theological College | Donvale | Victoria | Australia
Lecturer: Very Rev Dr John Behr “The School of Alexandria”, founded by St Mark the Evangelist, is the oldest and most renowned of the Christian schools in the early Church. The School of Alexandria developed the first system of Christian theology and the allegorical method of exegesis. The unit will examine three of the key figures in the School of Alexandria – Origen, St Athanasius and St Cyril – and relate them to the historical development of theology and to the controversies which they engaged with. The abiding issues in scriptural exegesis and systematic theology and the historical and contemporary problem of the split between the Eastern and Oriental Churches will also be addressed in the study intensive.
