Pater Noster

December 2011 2 episodes

These podcasts are of lectures or papers mainly but not exclusively prepared and delivered by Archpriest Gregory Hallam, parish priest at St. Aidan’s Orthodox Church in Manchester, UK and Dean of the Antiochian Deanery.  You may hear Fr. Gregory’s sermons together with those of other preachers in his parish on the “A Voice from the Isles ”podcast.”  Fr. Gregory’s interests are wide ranging but his special interest is the relationship between Orthodox Christianity and Science.  The title of this Special Podcast series reflects a cryptic word square unearthed on a vase in an archaeological dig in Manchester, proving that there were Orthodox Christians in the Roman fort of Manchester toward the end of the second century.  The word square contains rearrangements of the Latin phrase: “Pater Noster” – “Our Father.”
