From October 9-10, 2015, the St. Irenaeus Orthodox Theological Institute, in partnership with Saint Louis University, presented a conference to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the mutual lifting of excommunications by Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I. Speakers included Metropolitan Tarasios, the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Buenos Aires and South America, and Fr. Brian E. Daley, the Catherine F. Huisking Professor of Theology at the Univeristy of Notre Dame.
The Very Rev. Dr. John Anthony McGuckin, renowned author of 25 books, several of which are published by SVS Press, presented the keynote address at this year's Education Day at St. Vladimir's Seminary. Fr. John outlined a brief history of St. Cyril, highlighting the point that the Oriental and Eastern Orthodox traditions agree with much of the saint's theology.
