Dn. Porphyrios Georgi, New Dean of the Institute of Theology

It is with great joy that the St John of Damascus Institute of Theology at University of Balamand announces that His Beatitude John X, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, has appointed the Reverend Deacon Professor Porphyrios Georgi as the new Dean.

Deacon Porphyrios is the Associate Professor of Dogmatic Theology at the Institute. He is also a visiting professor in several theological faculties in the world, namely, at the faculties of theology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece, the Alexandru I. Cuza State University of Iasi, and the University Lucian Blaga of Sibiu in Romania.

Professor Porphyrios is a well-known productive scholar who has participated in many international conferences on early Christianity, late Byzantine theology, Inter-Christian Dialogues, Patristic theology, and contemporary Orthodox thought. He has edited several books, namely a trilogy of conferences that took place in Balamand since 2007. His doctoral thesis The Resurrection and Life: The Eschatology of Saint Gregory Palamas has been adopted as a textbook for the undergraduate courses of Patrology at the University of Thessaloniki.

Deacon Porphyrios is known by his considerable leadership gifts, his commitment to students, and distinctive teaching skills.

We wish Father Porphyrios many years of fruitful academic and pastoral work in the Lord’s vineyard.
