Two years ago today, June 19, 2009, we launched OrthodoxHistory.org with a post entitled, “Real Church. Real History.” I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on this website in the 24 months since then, and I’m very grateful for the contributions of our other authors: Fr. Oliver Herbel, Fr. Andrew Damick, Dn. Matthew Francis, Dr. William Samonides, Nicholas Chapman, and Aram Sarkisian, as well as the various guest authors we’ve featured over the years.
I’m especially thrilled that SOCHA has continued to grow and develop. If you can, I’d encourage you to attend our first-ever symposium, which is right around the corner. And be on the lookout for the first issue of our peer-reviewed journal, which will be published soon.
Most of all, thanks to all of our readers, without whom SOCHA and OrthodoxHistory.org would not exist.
