A new mega IOTA conference will be held in Greece


IOTA is the English abbreviation for “International Orthodox Theological Association”. It plans to hold a second mega conference from January 10. to 15., 2023, this time in the city of Volos in Greece.
Today, IOTA has 27 thematic groups, each of which individually announces applications for speeches during the conference. Among the groups are thematic (“Biblical studies”, “Dogmatic theology”, “Political theology”), devoted to ecclesiology, missiology, patristics, ecumenical dialogue, and regionally oriented – “Byzantine Orthodoxy”, “Slavic Orthodoxy”, “Romanian Orthodoxy”, etc.
IOTA was founded in 2017 and is a community of scholars and professionals seeking international knowledge sharing in the context of the Orthodox tradition. This Association seeks to be pan-Orthodox in nature and therefore does not belong to any particular local Orthodox Church, while seeking to maintain a constructive relationship with the leadership of all Orthodox Churches.
Dr. Paul L. Gavrilyuk has been the founding president of the Association. He comes from Kyiv, Ukraine, and is Professor at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA as well as a deacon of the Orthodox Church in America. In January 2019, the first mega IOTA conference took place in the Romanian city of Iasi. More than 250 speakers from more than 40 countries spoke at the conference. Conferences are scheduled to take place every four years.
