Volos Academy for Theological Studies organizes the first of the four round tables Greek Orthodoxy and the “other” in Greece in 2040 in the framework of the National Committee “Greece 2021”, examining the role of religion as a whole, and more particularly of Orthodoxy, in our relationship with the “other”, focusing in Greece in the period of the next twenty years.
