Holy Trinity Seminary Hosts a Lecture by Dr Alexis Torrance: “The Concept of a Person in Modern Orthodox Theology.”

On Thursday, March 14, 2013, Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary hosted a lecture on the concept of the person in Orthodox theology, presented by Alexis Torrance, Doctor of Philosophy, a Patristics scholar and the author of a recent monograph Repentance in Late Antiquity: Eastern Asceticism and the Framing of Christian Life (Oxford University Press, 2012). Dr Torrance is currently a Research Fellow at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece.  In his lecture, Dr Torrance focused on the Trinitarian and Christological foundations of the Orthodox Christian understanding of the personhood, and addressed some of the misconceptions regarding the human person in modern theology.  The lecture was attended by Archimandrite Luke, Rector of the Seminary, seminarians and members of the local community.
