The St Athanasius Greek Catholic Theological Institute

c) to form an ecumenical research group, since we would like to have as many participating scholars from different Christian denominations as possible
d) to attract young researchers, Licentiate and PhD students to the project
e) to advance the academic results of our research and our personal connections serve God's plan of salvation to promote world peace and to stop the persecution of Christians
