Orthodox Pillars of Faith
This course has been designed to give you a thorough knowledge/analysis of the orthodox fatherly literature pertaining to the Bible, dogma, and dogma in liturgical texts. This course will explore the main facets of Christian theology and the writings of early fathers and Christian theologians. Who are the Fathers? What role do they play in the orthodox Christian church? Is it something we simply can’t live without? These are just some of the questions we’ll be looking at in Orthodox Pillars of Faith (OPF).
