    Lecture 3C89: Orthodoxy has its own distinctive angle on the relationship between faith and science: not an antagonism but a mutual harmony respecting each other's sphere of operation. This lecture combines a talk delivered by Fr Gregory to Manchester University in 2011 and an article specially commissioned from the astrophysicist and Orthodox priest, Revd Dr Fr Christopher Knight.

    38:40
  • June 10, 2017
    Lecture 3C87: In this lecture (of double the usual length) we mount an in depth study of the arguments for and against ecumenism as currently practised. We do not come down on one side or other of these positions but commend the points examined to prayer and study. The lecture has been updated in the light of the global Orthodox reaction to the meeting in Crete in 2016. The Appendix is not included in the audio but may be found in the transcript. It is advisable to listen to lecture 86 on ecclesiology before approaching this lecture.
    1:19:50
  • May 30, 2017
    Lecture 3C86: The doctrine of the Church is perhaps one of the most contentious issues separating other Christians from Orthodoxy. The lecture explores these issues mindful that the next double lecture on Ecumenism depends on this one for its assumptions and analysis.
    45:18
  • May 23, 2017
    Lecture 3C85: Christian education is never simply and only a matter of imparting factual knowledge; it aims at imparting saving knowledge appropriate to each person in the community. This lecture explores some of these themes.
    44:46

    44:48
  • May 5, 2017
    Lecture 3C82: We explore the deep and nuanced relationships between men and women in their several callings within the Church, both lay and ordained, equal but different.
    46:15
  • May 1, 2017
    Lecture 3C81: In this lecture we examine the evolution of the threefold orders of ordained ministry and their contemporary expression. The lecture contains an appendix on celibacy which is not in the audio recording.
    47:36
  • March 10, 2017
    Lecture 3B80: Many people, even some Orthodox, misconceive the canons as ecclesiastical law. This lecture shows what the canons actually are and how the bishops with the faithful can develop a canonical consciousness within the canonical tradition of the Church in order to address contemporary issues.
    37:02
  • March 3, 2017
    Lecture 3B79:

    Rarely in recent times has there been so much upheaval (especially in the west) concerning sexual mores and human relationships. This lecture attempts to steer Orthodox Christians through these difficult and troubled waters.
    50:22
  • February 22, 2017
    Lecture 3B78: This lecture explores what is to relate to another person, whether a human being or God as a triune personhood, a communion of persons. This is the key to understanding a blessed Christian marriage and a flourishing Christian family. Resources are given at the end of the lecture to follow up in more depth the practical issues concerning Relationships, Marriage and Family.
    1:00:32
  • February 18, 2017
    Lecture 3B77: What is a vocation and how do we find it? How can we follow Christ through work? These very practical questions are considered in their spiritual contexts in this lecture.
    47:16
  • February 12, 2017
    Lecture 3B76: Money and wealth can become a contentious issue in the Church; but only when it becomes disconnected from the gospel and discipleship. This lecture examines the teaching of the Scriptures and the Fathers and attempts to map a way forward for the Church today.
    30:02
  • February 12, 2017
    Lecture 3B75: If there is no aspect of struggle in Christian discipleship then we walk a broad and dangerous path of our own making rather than the narrow path with and in Christ that leads to salvation. Ascetic effort infused by divine grace is part and parcel of that struggle. This lecture explores the how and the why of going about that task so that, having preached to others, we are not ourselves disqualified.
    41:53
  • January 27, 2017
    Lecture 3B74: We need hardly ask why we pray but what we pray, how, when and where is a different matter. This lecture hopes to give some guidance on Orthodox Christian Prayer
    37:32
  • January 27, 2017
    Lecture 3B73: This lecture by His Eminence Metropolitan Kallistos on soul guidance in the Orthodox Church is republished here with permission. It explores all the facets of spiritual parenting in the bishop's usual rich and engaging style. The audio re-transmission is edited down to about 70% of the original length but the transcript is of the full unedited text.
    45:51
  • January 12, 2017
    Lecture 3B72: In this lecture we trace the development of healing and deliverance ministries in the Orthodox Church across ages from the New Testament onwards.
    42:47
  • January 7, 2017
    Lecture 3B71: In this lecture we explore the theme of reconciliation in pastoral practice from the New Testament until about the 7th century when confession and Church discipline begins to assume its enduring forms in both the Orthodox Christian east and west.
    46:08
  • November 25, 2016
    Lecture 3A70: The second of a 2 part lecture explores the doctrine of the Last Things / End Times in relation to the Kingdom of God.
    29:34
  • November 25, 2016
    Lecture 3A69: The first of a 2 part lecture explores the doctrine of the Last Things / End Times in relation to the Kingdom of God.
    32:06
  • November 17, 2016
    Lecture 3A68: The practical application of the goal of deification to our lives concerns the acquisition of the Holy Spirit. This latter phrase, coined by St Seraphim of Sarov, concerns the way we can all proceed from baptism to the kingdom of God through repentance, goodness and the simplicity of faith. This lecture explores these themes.
    39:18
  • November 10, 2016
    Lecture 3A67: This much misunderstood and maybe little heard of teaching about salvation in the minds of non-Orthodox Christians is explained from the Scriptural and Patristic basis in this extensive lecture. A brief section on hesychastic prayer is also included.
    46:20
  • November 10, 2016
    Lecture 3A66: Three areas of application to the dogmatics of the Trinity and the Holy Spirit are examined in this lecture: ecclesiology, inter-faith relations and social justice.
    56:20
  • October 30, 2016
    Lecture 3A65: Nowhere perhaps are the theological differences between Orthodoxy and heterodoxy more marked than in the doctrines of the Trinity and the Holy Spirit. This lecture lays down both the dogmatic basis for these differences and their resulting divergent paths. (The attached transcript has two parts: one for the audio presentation, the other for Appendix "B", being a detailed consideration of the 'filioque' clause in the late Latin version of the Creed).
    43:16
  • October 20, 2016
    Lecture 3A64: Our faith that out of His love for mankind, God has come in the flesh corresponds also to the vital role of the Mary, the Mother of God who enabled that to happen. This lecture considers the practical implications for how we live out our Christian lives.
    52:26
  • October 20, 2016
    Lecture 3A63: The Incarnation lies at the very heart of Christianity. God Himself took the initiative in coming personally to save us. He did this through the willing cooperation of a young Jewish woman, Mary who became the Theotokos. This was her obedience to the Logos who received our human nature entire and perfect from her as the Saviour of the world. This lecture explores these themes from a doctrinal and existential perspective.
    31:37
  • October 7, 2016
    Lecture 3A62: The relationship between faith and science, the historical development of western atheism, the asceticism that transforms both humans and the cosmos and the modern fascination with angels are all covered in this lecture.
    47:32
  • October 2, 2016
    Lecture 3A61: This lecture, the first in our unit on Christian doctrine, explores the Creation, both visible and invisible (the angelic realm) and considers the revelation of the Creator God as Trinity and the Creation itself as being forged by God out of nothing or "non-being."
    37:13
  • July 24, 2016
    Lecture 2C60: The twentieth and twenty-first centuries have seen a great flowering of lived theology in the Orthodox world. Some of this has been stimulated by persecution and dispersion, some by encountering a vastly more diverse cultural environment than possible for many centuries and other trends have been set in motion by the revival of both monasticism and the role of the elder. This lecture, longer than usual in the transcript, explores some of these developments. Please note, the podcast covers just 40% of the material included in the much longer transcript.
    50:41
  • July 12, 2016
    Lecture 2C59: In the 18th and 19th centuries great challenges presented themselves to the Church in the Near East under the Ottoman Yoke and in Russia through a westernisation program in both Church and State. God raised up a new generation of saints in these adverse circumstances to bring renewal and authenticity to beleaguered Orthodox Christian communities. We celebrate their memory and teaching in this lecture.
    29:14
  • July 4, 2016
    Lecture 2C58: The increasingly divergent approaches to theology and practice in the Greek East and the Latin West finally lead to the Schism of Old Rome in 1054. Instrumental factors included a lack of charitable dialogue and the increasingly politicised nature of Frankish influence, together with growing papal dominance in the West. In the following four centuries, scholasticism characterised western theology, hesychasm in turn the response of the east - as developed in the teaching of St Gregory Palamas. This lecture explores the themes of separation, divorce and reconstruction on both sides of this tragic divide.
    40:35
  • June 28, 2016
    Lecture 2C57: The long struggle against iconoclasm took place both before and after the 7th Ecumenical Council which definitively declared on this matter At the same time, in this period, tensions between east and west were on the rise. One key issue was the unilateral alteration to the Creed made in the west, the filioque clause. This lecture explores these struggles to preserve and maintain the faith in the face of these serious challenges.
    56:29
  • June 18, 2016
    Lecture 2C56: Broadly speaking the 3rd to the 6th Ecumenical Councils deliberated over the implications of the Nicene faith for christology. Progress was made in stops and starts and not without the kind of controversy that was both indicative of and leading to schism. Arguably the end of this conciliar process left most of the bases covered for the Orthodox but with the tragedy of the loss of much of Egypt after Chalcedon. This lecture covers this long and sometimes complex history.
    44:14
  • June 13, 2016
    Lecture 2C55: The 4th to the 6th Centuries saw a great flowering of western Orthodox theology in the persons of Saints Jerome, Ambrose, Augustine and the Popes Leo and Gregory the Great.This lecture explores the major themes of their theology and Christian witness.
    49:31
  • June 2, 2016
    Lecture 2C54: The heretical teaching of Arius precipitated a crisis across the Christian world in the 4th Century. This was resolved by the Fathers of the first and 2nd Ecumenical Councils who gave us the Nicene Creed as the gold standard of Orthodox Christian believing (particularly) in Christ. This was also the century of two great Antiochian luminaries, St. John Chrysostom and St Ephrem the Syrian. This lecture covers all these developments and persons.
    51:26
  • May 19, 2016
    Lecture 2C53: Martyrdom for the sake of Christ was an inescapable likelihood for the first 300 years of the Church's history and in different societies at different times this has remained so ever since. This lecture explores the history of this Way of the Cross and how it gave way to the rise of monasticism when the fires of persecution had abated in the 4th century.
    37:53
  • May 16, 2016
    Lecture 2C52: Rome and Alexandria struggled in the 2nd and 3rd centuries to do justice to the Christian revelation of God as Trinity and the Personhood of Christ as both God and Man. This was, of course well before the storm broke over Arius and the Christological issues which were to be settled at the first Ecumenical Council. Needless to say, some of these 2nd and 3rd century Fathers were more successful than others. This lecture explores their theology.
    25:28
  • May 5, 2016
    Lecture 2C51: Those who had been entrusted by the Apostles with the handing down of their teaching and in turn their subsequent disciples collectively became known as the Apostolic Fathers. For the most part writing in the 2nd Century and usually against the rising tide of gnosticism and other heresies they were succeeded by the Apologists. The latter developed what we now know as "Apologetics", the defence of the Orthodox Catholic faith against its detractors. In this lecture we consider a few notable examples of these early Christian theologians.
    35:31
  • March 14, 2016
    Lecture 2B50: After considering the prophetic and pastoral aspects of Jude and 2 Peter, this lecture concludes the New Testament unit with an examination of the formation of the New Testament canon. We introduce and substantiate the claim that, historically, the Church brought the Scriptures into being by the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, not the other way round.
    38:50
  • March 3, 2016
    Lecture 2B49: The Epistles of St. James and St. Peter focus on practical Christian living. Respectively they derive insights from the Royal Law as fulfilled by Christ and baptism as a participation in Christ's sufferings with endurance.
    26:54
  • February 28, 2016
    Lecture 2B48: The Catholic or Pastoral Epistles of St. Paul show not only the heart and mind of a missionary but also that of a deeply pastoral man concerned for the welfare of the flock in his care. It also shows him to be solicitous of both Timothy and St Titus whom he has trained. The Letter to the Hebrews is altogether a different kind of work; more a theological treatise on sacrificial redemption and faith.
    35:21
  • February 17, 2016
    Lecture 2B47: This lecture presents an overview of the theology and practical pastoral counsel of St. Paul in his Epistle to the Romans and his several letters penned whilst in prison in Rome.
    36:04
  • February 11, 2016
    Lecture 2B46: In this first of three lectures we consider the theology and context of St. Paul's letters to the Church in Thessalonica, Corinth and Galatia respectively.
    35:37
  • February 6, 2016
    Lecture 2B45: The corpus of St. John the Theologian's writings in the New Testament is extensive. The Johannine writings bear similar hallmarks indicating crisis, salvation and judgement, light and darkness, the decision that has to be made. In this lecture we explore some of these themes.
    30:39
  • January 27, 2016
    Lecture 2B44: St. John's Gospel is somewhat different from the Synoptics in the selection and presentation of the words and deeds of Christ - yet, for all that, there are striking parallels and convergences. Together, all 4 gospels constitute a harmonious whole. In this lecture we consider the distinctive aspects of St. John's Gospel as he in turn tells the story of Christ.
    23:20
  • January 27, 2016
    Lecture 2B43: St Luke's Gospel presents and emphasises all those aspects of the work of Christ concerning the lost and the marginalised, yet it also is uncompromising in revealing the call to radical discipleship by the power of the Holy Spirit. This carries through into his second work, the Acts of the Apostles. This lectures explores these distinctive aspects of St Luke's gospel and the historical trajectory of the Church's mission in Acts.
    28:08
  • January 15, 2016
    Lecture 2B42: St. Matthew's Gospel reveals a Hebraic context and intention with a provenance probably in Antioch. This lecture explores its major themes.
    21:06
  • December 2, 2015
    Lecture 2B41: This first New Testament lecture surveys St. Mark's Gospel with an examination of its relationship to the other synoptic gospels of St. Matthew and St. Luke.
    36:47
  • November 27, 2015
    Lecture 2A40 : In this final lecture in the Old Testament Unit we explore those books that characterise the development of Judaism from the rebuilding of the Temple to the time of Christ, including from an earlier period, and as a preface, the Psalter. Broadly speaking the focus thereafter is on Wisdom literature and Apocalyptic eschatology.
    34:40
  • November 20, 2015
    Lecture 2A39: The return from Exile and the rebuilding of the Temple inaugurated a series of religious reforms at the hands of Ezra and Nehemiah. This lecture examines how these reforms set Judaism on a course toward its New Testament shape over the following four centuries
    26:29

  • November 14, 2015
    Lecture 2A38: In this lecture we examine the circumstances which led to the fall of Jerusalem in 587 BC and the Exile to Babylon that followed - through the eyes of two prophets, Jeremiah and Ezekiel.
    27:49
  • November 7, 2015
    Lecture 2A37: Spiritually speaking Judah fared little better after the division of the kingdoms than the north. Apostasy followed by reform and temporary respites in the face of relentless hostile enemies to the east all took their toll. This lecture examines how three prophets: Isaiah, Micah and Zephaniah responded with God's word to the nation.
    32:43
  • October 30, 2015
    Lecture 2A36: The division of the kingdom after Solomon's death set Israel on two different historical trajectories which would eventually resolve in favour of Judah. In the 200 years or so between this division and the fall of Samaria we see an incredibly fertile period for the growth of prophecy in Israel, but only because so many of the kings in the north (and for the south for that matter) were at best inconstant in their faithfulness to Yahweh or at worst downright apostate. This lecture traces this troubled history which was to leave an indelible mark on unfolding salvation history down to the coming of the Messiah.
    33:08
  • October 22, 2015
    Lecture 2A35 :
    The military weakness of a tribal confederacy when exposed to external threats soon gave rise to calls for a monarchy and a unitary state to respond to these new challenges. The Prophet Samuel, initially reluctant if not hostile, accedes and the Davidic line begins after the failed "start up" which was Saul. The Davidic covenant later became important for the Messianic expectations of Israel. The ascendancy of Judah and Jerusalem in particular marks the beginning of a new era. However, unparalleled wealth and power (relatively speaking) brings with it its own temptations and corruptions, as the kingly career of Solomon was to show.
    19:14
  • October 15, 2015
    Lecture 2A34: The conquest of Canaan and the rule of Judges across a tribal confederacy marks a transition for the Hebrew people from nomadism to a settled agrarian way of life. This itself brought its own challenges in the military defence of this new territory and the tendency among some to apostasise and embrace the Baalite fertility cults of the region.
    31:13
  • October 12, 2015
    Lecture 2A33 : "Covenant" is the keystone of the relationship between God and His People in the Old Testament and the New. There are a number of covenants in the Old Testament and the foremost perhaps among these is the Mosaic. This lecture explores the promises and thankful responses that characterise and seal this relationship forged after the Exodus..
    15:25
  • October 5, 2015
    Lecture 2A32: In this lecture the typological connections are explored between two great foundational liberation events in salvation history: the Exodus and the Resurrection of Christ.
    12:57
  • September 25, 2015
    Lecture 2A31 : In this lecture we launch our Old Testament Study by exploring the earliest strands of salvation history in the span of Genesis 12-50. Each lecture will conclude with a specimen bible study in a standard grid format.
    21:19
  • June 26, 2015
    Lecture 1C30: What lessons for today's Church can we learn from Church History?
    17:11
  • June 21, 2015
    Lecture 1C29: The 20th Century saw the rise of a persecuting atheism and a religious and ethnic intolerance rarely if ever seen in human history before, certainly not on this scale. Russia recovered but many Christian communities in Asia Minor and the Near East have continually been hard pressed and forced in many cases to emigrate. Meanwhile this was a time of great modernising change in Roman Catholicism and an occasion of exponential fracturing of the Protestant world with the proliferation of sects and the rise of Pentecostalism. Secularism has its roots perhaps in all these movements and this lecture explores how this might be so.
    44:53
  • June 11, 2015
    Lecture 1C28: In the west, the 19th Century was characterised by idealism, romanticism and bitter struggles between traditionalism and modernity. In the Orthodox east the progressive decline of the Ottoman Empire generated nationalistic sentiment in liberated regions, putting huge strains on the Orthodox ecclesiological model. This lecture examines the predicaments and adaptations of 19th Century Christianity, Orthodox and heterodox.
    54:18
  • June 3, 2015
    In this lecture we see how the dawn of the modern era led to upheavals, political and spiritual in both east and west. It sets the scene for the following lecture which goes on to explore the responses to modernity in both the Orthodox Church and the increasingly fractured Christian west.
    53:26
  • June 3, 2015
    This two part lecture explorers the development of Russian Orthodoxy from Kiev to the autocephaly of the Moscow Patriarchate and then back in Europe we examine the political and religious tensions that rent asunder the unity of the medieval Roman Catholic Church.
    38:41
  • May 21, 2015
    Lecture 1C25 : In Lecture 24 we looked at the growing spiritual alienation of east and west from before the Great Schism to the Fall of Constantinople. In this sister lecture we look at the geopolitical aspects of the decline of Byzantium after the Schism and the growth of Hellenism after the Fall of Constantinople. In the west in this period we explore both the power and the weakness of the papacy, theology in the context of feudalism and the impact of the Renaissance.
    44:39
  • May 14, 2015
    Lecture 1C24: The modern world still bears the scars and indeed new wounds inflicted by the legacy of the Great Schism in Europe. This lecture traces its origins from when the west was still Orthodox through to the fall of Constantinople.
    40:04
  • May 12, 2015
    Lecture 1C23 : Why did the Church Councils become necessary? How did the Church change and rise to the challenge of its new honoured position in the Roman Empire? These are just some of the questions addressed in this lecture.
    31:43
  • May 1, 2015
    Lecture 1C22: This lecture looks at the ante-Nicene Fathers, particularly the historical background to the speculative theological trends in the Alexandrian tradition and some new emerging heresies. (The historical references in the New Testament will be considered in Year 2 in the New Testament unit).
    31:53
  • April 25, 2015
    Lecture 1C21: In this first lecture on Church History we look at the societies, cultures and religions of the Near East in the 3 centuries before the birth of Christ. Our lecturer is the historian Dimitri Brady.
    27:51
  • March 25, 2015
    Lecture 1B20 : In this lecture we trace the historical development in the liturgical rites both in the east and the west with reference to the Eucharist and the Hours of Prayer. In the final homiletics talk we offer a commentary on the composition of a sermon podcasted on Ancient Faith Radio entitled: "The Journey and the Voice" here:- http://www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/voicefromisles/the_journey_and_the_voice#transcript
    49:14
  • March 14, 2015
    Description: Lecture 1B19: This lecture gives an overview of occasional services in the Orthodox Church together with an introduction to liturgical chant. The homiletics lecture looks at the practical compositional process for a sermon or talk. This is the first part, to be completed in Homiletics 10 with a practical worked example.
    36:21
  • March 5, 2015
    Description: Lecture 1B18: In this lecture we explore the dynamic connections between liturgical and personal prayer and in the homiletics section we consider what we can learn from the arts and the sciences in terms of effective communication.
    46:58
  • March 5, 2015
    Description: Lecture 1B17: Church Architecture is as much concerned with presenting the gospel as the icons that our temples contain. This lecture traces historical developments in Rome and then in the Christian east. The homiletics talk examines how effective preachers and teachers use (and not abuse) the Scriptures, the Fathers and the Lives of the Saints in their pedagogy and proclamation.
    23:02
  • February 21, 2015
    Lecture 1B16: In this lecture we discover the importance of the saints in Orthodox worship and life. They embody the gospel life and show just how possible and necessary it is to aim for sanctity in our Christian lives. In the homiletics section we look at how appropriate content is chosen and arranged in a sermon or teaching session.
    43:15
  • February 12, 2015
    Lecture 1B15: Orthodox worship is sacramental through and through. Both the goodness of the created order and the fullness of the Incarnation require that the physical realm be venerated as a vehicle for the spiritual. In this lecture we consider the implications for anthropology, sacramental theology and iconography. The homiletics section explores best practice in sermon preparation and composition.
    36:56
  • February 5, 2015
    Lecture 1B14: We explore how all things in the spacetime continuum can be transformed, made holy, by the God who is the only absolute frame of reference for all things that are both relative to each other and contingent upon Him. In the homiletics section we examine how people learn and how the teacher can the better teach.
    1:09:55
  • January 28, 2015
    Lecture 1B13: In this lecture we explore the origin and development of the Divine Liturgy in the eastern rites, considering also the place of the Eucharist in the mission of the Church. In the homiletics lecture we examine the personal, social and spiritual context of preaching.
    51:10
  • January 22, 2015
    Lecture 1B12: In this lecture we study how a person is incorporated by baptism into Christ and His Body the Church with a transformation acquisition of the Holy Spirit through chrismation. The second homiletics lecture looks at the objectives of preaching and teaching.
    48:38
  • January 17, 2015
    Lecture 1B11: In this first of a series of two part lectures we explore how Liturgy and Theology both inform each other and how in the participation of the believers in the Mysteries of the Church, salvation might be attained. In the second part we introduce the task of preaching and teaching with reference to the Scriptures within the Tradition of the Church.
    32:37
  • December 6, 2014
    Lecture 1A10: In this lecture different understandings of salvation illuminating the cross and the empty tomb are presented from Scripture and Tradition, contrasting both Orthodox and heterodox doctrines.
    30:25
  • November 19, 2014
    Lecture 1A9: This lecture has two parts. The first traces the development of the Chalcedonian Definition concerning Christ, His dual nature and single personhood. The second part explores significance of Chalcedonian Christianity for the transformation of both the human person and the Cosmos.
    35:25
  • November 12, 2014
    Lecture 1A8: Building on Lecture 1A7 we consider the saving actions of God in time and Orthodoxy’s dialogue with other religions and, beyond this, salvation in the context of humanity’s place in the Cosmos.
