The new podcast Cambridge Orthodox Forum: Lectures delivered in Cambridge, UK at the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies, recently launched on Ancient Faith Radio (AFR).
The Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies (IOCS), the pan-Orthodox house for theological studies in the ancient university city of Cambridge, England, is presenting this selection of lectures delivered by a number of distinguished scholars for the Institute’s degree course. The series of lectures will address a variety of themes while trying to address questions of great relevance for the world of today. The first lectures will be:
1. What is Theology?
Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, renowned Orthodox author, former Spalding Lecturer in Eastern Orthodox Studies at the University of Oxford and one of the Directors of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies, explores the Orthodox vision of theology.
"Ancient Faith Today With Kevin Allen," AFR's new flagship national program, is slated to launch at the end of Bright Week on April 22, 2012.
Allen, the host of the award-winning interview podcast, "The Illumined Heart," will draw on his background in Orthodox media to discuss a wide variety of issues with knowledgeable guests, all through the lens of the Orthodox faith and tradition. "Ancient Faith Today" will stream live and allow for call-ins from around the globe, twice a month on Sunday evenings at 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Antiochian.org asked host Kevin Allen to share his hopes and plans for this new venture.
1. Kevin, tell us about your history with Orthodox internet radio.
I hosted an interview program called “The Illumined Heart” on Ancient Faith Radio from 2007 through April 2011 with a few hiatuses in between. We logged 5, 251 minutes and 49 seconds in 176 programs with Orthodox and non-Orthodox laity, clergy, monastics, theologians, writers and Episcopal leaders on a wide range of subjects with the common theme of “spirituality” and “church life." The program began as a parish media project and Ancient Faith Radio produced it on its Talk Radio line-up as a regular program as a downloadable podcast. In addition, I have been a listener of many of the other fine podcasts on AFR myself through the years.

The Society's website explains, "The Society for Orthodox Christian History in the Americas (SOCHA) exists to promote the study of the history of the Orthodox Christian Church in the New World; to collect source materials and make them available to researchers and scholars; to disseminate historical information to the public; and to encourage networking among those engaged in the study of American Orthodox history. SOCHA is particularly dedicated to this study based on the examination of primary sources with integrity and clarity."
