Orientale Lumen: A Reminder of NLM Interest in Eastern Christian Articles

Four plus years ago, the NLM was founded on a vision which was sure to include the liturgical traditions and theology of the Eastern churches in its writings; indeed, how could it not? The liturgical theology and liturgical piety of the Christian East is both of interest in its own right and also has much relevance for those of us in the Western church as well.

For these and many other reasons, this area continues to be a significant point of interest, and one which I am interested in seeing recovered with a greater presence and regularity here, just as it had originally.

Accordingly, I would invite our Eastern Christian readers to consider the submission of guest articles on topics liturgical interest, but within the context of the Eastern Christian paradigm. This includes writings on the Eastern liturgical rites and history, iconography, architecture, and so forth.

Those who are interested in this possibility are invited to submit proposals and to discuss them.

I would further make a reminder that the NLM would eventually like to add one or two regular contributors who would be willing to write regularly or semi-regularly on these topics.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of these possibilities further, or if you have any questions.
