Riassunto: At the kind invitation of His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew, I gave a lecture in Constantinople on “The Orthodox Academy of Crete - The First Forty Years”. The lecture was delivered in Greek as a power-point presentation in the Manuscripts Room of the Library of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on 12 January 2011. His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch, the members of the Holy Synod and other hierarchs of the Ecumenical Patriarchate as well as officials, both clergy and lay people, were in attendance. Following the wish of His All Holiness the lecture was published in the form of an Album.* During an official celebration at the Ecumenical Patriarchate in May of the same year the Album was presented by the Brotherhood of Archons of the Mother and Great Church of Christ the Church of Constantinople to His All-Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch on the completion of twenty fruitful years of patriarchal service. My respect for the wish of the Patriarch to see the Album published in an English translation has dictated my decision to dare to publish the Album in English. Since the Greek lecture was addressed to members of our Orthodox Church, for the present edition it was necessary to make several changes and additions. At a Glance It is evident that this Album cannot and should not be seen as a history of the Orthodox Academy of Crete. It is simply a brief overview of some aspects of its creation, life and efforts, a short informative account for beloved people from all over the world, who honor the Academy through their visits or their participation in one or another of its activities. Dr. Alexandros K. Papaderós
About the Author: Alexandros K. Papaderos (Greek Orthodox) is co-founder of the Orthodox Academy of Crete (OAC) and was its General Director from 1963 to 2008. After the destruction of his village Livadas, Crete in 1943, he was deported to the concentration camp Ayia, Chania, at the age of ten, an experience that greatly influenced his further life. He attended the Priest’s School in Crete (1946-52) and received his Master in Theology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1956, while engaged in social diaconic work. His first ecumenical encounters, in 1955/56 at international workcamps of the World Council of Churches (WCC) in Germany, were important for his future work. In 1958-63 he studied in Mainz, where he worked as a research assistant specializing in cultural sciences, completing his Ph.D. (with a dissertation on Metakenosis: Griechenlands kulturelle Herausforderung durch die Aufklärung in der Sicht von Korais und Oikonomos (Mainz, 1962). At the same time, in close cooperation with his former teacher Metropolitan Irineos of Kisamos and Selinon, he began preparations for the establishment of the OAC. In 1965-67 and 1974-99 he was an elected Member of the Pedagogical Institute of Greece in Athens, responsible for religious education throughout Greece. From 1974-2003, he was an elected Member of the Central Committee of the Conference of European Churches (CEC) in Geneva, representing the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, which led to close cooperation between the WCC and the OAC. In 1992/93 he also served as ad-interim President of the CEC. Papaderos is an Archon of the Patriachate of Constantinople, a full member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts and recipient of numerous honors for his work. He was a guest lecturer at the McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago in 1989.
