On 25 April 2014 Revd. Prof. Andrew Louth will continue his lecture series Modern Orthodox Theology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with a lecture about Mother Thekla (Sharf) and the English acculturation of Orthodoxy.
The newly elected Metropolitan of Belgium Athenagoras was enthroned on 21 December 2013. AXIOS! When still an auxiliary bishop he officiated during the blessing ceremony of ACEOT held on 21 October 2010. At that time he was secretary of the Orthodox Bishops' Conference of The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg; now he is the president of the conference.
On the photo of the ceremony in the central hall of the university you can see from left to right:

ACEOT director Fr Michael Bakker,
Metropolitan Kallistos and
Archbishop Gabriel of blessed memory (who has been succeeded by Archbishop Job of Telmessos)
The photobook contains a larger version of this picture.
On 21 June 2013 the colloquium Orthodox Diaspora: a Place in-between – a Place of Encounter – a Place for Theology took place. You can watch the lectures for free in iTunesU. Video recordings are also available here.
