The Solon and Marianna Patterson Triennial Conference on Orthodox/Catholic Dialogue

The 2013 Conference was held 11-13 June 2013 at Fordham's Rose Hill Campus. It was on "Christianity, Democracy, and the Shadow of Constantine."

Orthodox Readings of Augustine
In June of 2007, the Orthodox Christian Studies Program hosted its first annual conference, "Orthodox Readings of Augustine," which examined the place of St Augustine in the Orthodox Church in the hope that the Latin doctor might be seen as a bridge between East and West rather than an obstacle. The proceedings  from the conference have been published by St. Vladimir’s seminary Press (Fall 2008).

Solon and Marianna Patterson of Atlanta, GA, who attended the inaugural conference, generously provided $100,000 and issued a challenge grant for an additional $200,000 to endow the conference series permanently. On June 28-30, 2010, we hosted the first installment of the Patterson Triennial Conference on Orthodox/Roman Catholic Dialogue, entitled "Orthodox Constructions of the West." You can find a Conference Rationale here and read about the conference here. The proceedings of the conference have been published in Orthodox Constructions of the West, ed. by George Demacopoulos and Aristotle Papanikolaou (Fordham University Press, 2013).
