A Centre for Antiochian Orthodox Christian Studies and Research: Newsletters

The Antiochian 4 (2013) *NEW*

Antioch Centre has many projects to continue, and others still to commence, relating to the poorly-known, though extremely rich, Antiochian Orthodox Christian patrimony and heritage. At present, funding is still needed for many of these projects, but some of them are going forward with what funding is currently available. During the autumn of 2011, following the footsteps of the late and renowned Georgian scholar Prof. Wachtang Djobadze (1917-2007),1 Fr. Elia and Prof. Tamila Mgaloblishvili (The Centre for Exploration of Georgian Antiquities, University of St. Andrew, Tbilisi, Georgia) led a Georgian group of historians, art historians, and archaeologists on a tour of Antioch and its surrounding mountains. They were able to observe the unprotected and unconserved ruins of various ancient Antiochian and Georgian monasteries and churches. This is a long-term project based on information in Antiochian and Georgian manuscripts colophons, as well as archaeological evidence. The aim is to update and continue the great work of Djobadze.

The Antiochian 3 (2010)

Antioch Centre continues its work to catalogue all existing manuscripts in the world that relate to the Antiochian Orthodox Church, and place them in a comprehensive database. Alongside this crucial work, the Centre continues to work on new and surprising aspects of Antiochian history heretofore unknown or poorly studied, and found in the Church’s icons, manuscripts, and other artefacts. In this issue of The Antiochian, we will present some of the Centre’s latest work on these, and inform you about efforts to coordinate our academic endeavours with other work being undertaken at research institutions in the United States, which is immediately relevant to our own work and research.

The Antiochian 2 (2009)

At present Fr. Elia is still concentrating on locating manuscripts and documents, determining which are Chalcedonian Orthodox, and writing a description of their contents. The ultimate aim of this work is to compile a catalogue of this corpus of manuscripts with inventories, indices, and bibliographies. We hope that the contents and the colophons of these manuscripts will help scholars in the study of every aspect relating to Antiochian Orthodox Christian heritage. In this issue of The Antiochian we offer a view into several of the many different characteristics of these manuscripts, and the kinds of information to be gained from them which have immediate relevance for our times.

The Antiochian 1 (2008)

Fr. Elia continues to catalogue the thousands of manuscripts which he is locating from around the world, documenting where they are, and what can be found in each of them. Work of a great variety still needs to be done, including entering the catalogue on a computer database, compiling a full bibliography of all published books, articles, and materials relating to the Patriarchate of Antioch, as well as many other projects yet to commence. At the moment funding is still needed for many of these projects, but some of them are going forward with what funding is available.
