    "The Perils of Pursuing a PhD in Philosophy"

    Another major difference between American and European PhD programs: American programs usually involve a few years of course work before student begins work on a dissertation. Many European programs only require a dissertation.

    "The Perils of Pursuing a PhD in Philosophy"

    I was actually in a very blessed situation. The following variables worked in my favor: (1) I had already been teaching online courses for the college for several years. (2) I was recommended by the professor who I taught with. (3) The school is so small that not many are likely to apply to the...

    Indulgences are simply not part of the Byzantine Tradition. The West developed its understanding of this concept quite independently from the East, and so indulgences simply do not fit well into Byzantine theology and praxis.

    Adoration?

    At the college/seminary where I teach, Eucharistic adoration is available in some form everyday, and it is having a profound influence on my own spiritual life. While I tend toward Byzantine spirituality in general, being able to spend time with the Lord in this particular way has been...
