With the support of the Luce Foundation and Fordham University's Orthodox Christian Studies Program, this two-day symposium built on the success of the 2010 Women and Church, East and West symposium. Catholic and Orthodox speakers discussed our shared heritage of attitudes and experiences of peace and war, and discussed the contemporary world situation in the light of those experiences. In the conviction that united voices are more likely to help build peace than disunited ones, War and Peace seeks to help the Orthodox and Catholic traditions work together to be peace-makers for the sake of all the world’s inhabitants.
