Moreover, the Seminary offers a stage for fruitful dialogues of Christian theologians with people of other faith affirmations. It is a place where both men and women of the Orthodox Church, study and teach theology and reflect to the challenges of the world and share their ideas for a better tomorrow, for the society and the church as a whole.
