Jordanville Readings, a podcast from Holy Trinity Publications

An Interview with Jean-Claude Larchet

Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

The Spiritual Roots of the Ecological Crisis

This week, we’re bring­ing you some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent here on Jor­danville Read­ings. On May 2–4, 2022l we were hon­ored to host Pro­fes­sor Jean-Claude Lar­chet at Holy Trin­i­ty Monastery. Dr Lar­chet is a French con­vert to the Faith. He is also one of the best known liv­ing Ortho­dox authors and patrol­o­gists today. He gra­cious­ly took some time dur­ing his vis­it to sit down with us and talk about his life as an Ortho­dox Chris­t­ian, his stud­ies and writ­ings, and espe­cial­ly the books he has pub­lished recent­ly under the ban­ner of Holy Trin­i­ty Pub­li­ca­tions. We bring you that con­ver­sa­tion in full over the course of the episodes found below.
