Mission Statement

The Basilian Journal is the academic publication of the Center for Orthodox Thought and Culture at Eastern University. Interdisciplinary in nature, it serves as a heretofore little-seen but much-needed publication for scholarly reflection on myriad aspects of Eastern Orthodox Christian faith, theology, history, and art. The journal reflects on topics pertinent to Eastern Christendom and examines a range of subjects through the Eastern Christian lens. It is staffed and edited by a board of academics, students, Orthodox clergy, and laity, and is written for a diverse audience of readers interested in intellectual engagement with Orthodoxy.
