Course Content (Syllabus)
Joachim III' began in Constantinople, where he was twice patriarch on the verge of major transformations, at a time when the struggle between Ottomanism and national identities, ethnarchy and nation was intensifying. Meletios Metaxakis was born in Crete and played a major role, ecclesiastical and political, in the period of the transition from empires to nation states. The Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Archdiocese of Cyprus and finally the Patriarchate of Alexandria, through which Meletios passed, are receiving major effects from the passage from emprires to nation states. Students gain knowledge about those two great personalities, whose action and work balances between Church and State.
