with a short historical overview of the history of the relations
between the various Orthodox and Catholic churches. Some brief information
will be given regarding the various churches that make up the Eastern
Christian tradition, which include the Assyrian, Oriental and Byzantine

This talks will introduce
participants to the various figures that have shaped the Eastern
Christian tradition, from the early apostolic church right up to
