Mary, the Mother of God, an Eastern Orthodox Christian perspective.

A video series exploring the Old Testament prefiguring of the Theotokos (Mother of God) and the hymnody used by the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church to venerate her.

This series of videos were one of my Doctoral projects that were given “live” in my parish in 2011 with the blessings of my parish priest. The classes are recreated in the video format for your use.  The Teen/Adult age group is an appropriate audience.   In general the first 2 images of each video lesson were handouts for the participants, then there was a 20 minute lecture. After the lecture, the remainder of the class time was spent in discussion with the participants.

It is my hope you will find these video lessons useful and edifying.
