From the website: Housed at Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary, the Sophia Institute encourages research into the Eastern Orthodox tradition – its history, thought, liturgical and spiritual cultures – as well as issues of its ecumenical and social – ethical engagement with the contemporary world. The Institute is an independent Orthodox educational charity that serves as a gathering force for contemporary Orthodox scholars, theologians, spiritual teachers, and ethicists.
