Orthodoxy in Dialogue launched as an independent publication in August 2017 to provide a space for the open exchange of ideas relevant to Orthodox Christianity. Reflective of our commitment to Orthodox, ecumenical, and interfaith dialogue, we publish writers who represent a wide spectrum of interests and perspectives both within and outside the Orthodox Church. Our work is dedicated to the memory of Eric J. Iliff

Founding editor Giacomo Sanfilippo is an Orthodox Christian, PhD student in Theological Studies at Trinity College in the University of Toronto, father of five and grandfather of two, and former priest. He holds a BA in Sexuality Studies from York University in Toronto and an MA in Theology from Regis College/St. Michael’s College in Toronto, and is an alumnus of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto. Earlier in life he completed the course requirements for the MDiv at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. He has written for Public Orthodoxy, the Toronto Journal of Theology, Milwaukee Independent, The Wheel, and the Kyiv Post. His MA thesis, “A Bed Undefiled: Foundations for an Orthodox Theology and Spirituality of Same-Sex Love,” has been downloaded almost 1000 times. 

Giacomo's "Father Pavel Florensky and the Sacrament of Love" introduces his doctoral research on Florensky's 1914 essay "Friendship" as the world's first modern Christian theology of same-sex love. Other papers of his are available at academia.edu.

Your support will enable Giacomo to complete his doctorate, further his research in sexuality, gender, and Orthodox tradition, and continue managing Orthodoxy in Dialogue.
