In agreement with Sergii Bortnyk, during the first months of 2021, Archpriest Andrii Shymanovych prepared a series of programs on the theology of Metropolitan John Zizioulas. Gradually, from February 21 to March 28, 2021 these programs were broadcast in six parts on the YouTube channel “Pro vichne” (“about the Eternal”). They are based on the analysis of the works of this prominent Greek theologian set out in the book of Sergii
Bortnyk “Communion and person. Theology of John Zizioulas in systematic consideration”.
The book itself, which formed the basis of the series of the programs, was
originally written in German as doctoral dissertation of Sergii Bortnyk at the University of Heidelberg (Germany). In 2013, it was successfully defended at the theological faculty of this university, and in September 2017 its Russian translation was published in Kyiv.
This series of programs is the first detailed description of the ideas of the
mentioned book in Ukrainian language. In the following we give links to the relevant parts of the cycle on the YouTube channel.
