An Orthodox Journal of Cross-Cultural Theology, Dialogue and Mission

Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia (Ware)

“For many centuries most Orthodox Churches have existed in the situation of a national or state Church.  This was true, in a modified way, even of Orthodoxy within the Ottoman Empire.  During the twentieth century, in one Orthodox country after another, the alliance between Church and State has come to an end, or at least has been greatly weakened.  Many people see this as a loss, but in reality it is a challenge and an opportunity.  As Orthodox we enjoy a creative freedom such that we have not possessed in the past.  How are we using this freedom?  I am confident that the new journal Salt will contribute positively to our contemporary Orthodox witness.”
