This unit will examine the historical development of the Orthodox Missiology by situating it in the key Orthodox mission movements from the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox traditions. There will be a distinctive focus on the mission models of the Coptic Orthodox tradition. The unit will cover matters such as: the origin, the development, the mission tasks in the social, cultural, and diaspora milieus of the Orthodox mission; the lives, ministries, and methods of the most significant Orthodox missionaries; and the biblical, theological, liturgical and historical perspectives of the Orthodox witness that informed the Orthodox mission activities in various historical contexts. The unit will critically look into several historical approaches that took shape in engaging the Orthodox evangelisation.
