Description of the Online Professional Course: Orthodoxy, Ethics and Business

Orthodox Christian Church is undoubtedly the most unknown in the West, though has about 250 million followers, making it the second-largest Christian Church.

  1. Orthodox Christianity is the largest religion in Belarus, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Montenegro, Macedonia, Russia, Romania, Serbia, and Ukraine
  2. It is also a major religion in Kazakhstan, with 44% of the population, Latvia (35%), Bosnia and Herzegovina (31%), Albania (20%), the Kyrgyz Republic (20%), and Estonia (16%)

Almost all of these countries were under the Communist dictatorship, during which was prosecuted or severely controlled. With the communism fall, Orthodox Christianity re-emerged with force

  1. For Orthodox, Jesus is the head of his church.
  2. Unlike Catholic centralism, Orthodox Church is organised into various autocephalous churches (do not depend on anyone else above, have the right to self-Government, may appoint their bishops) led by the Patriarchs.
  3. All these churches are twinned with each other
  4. We do not find an equivalent figure to the Pope of Rome; Orthodox does not accept the dogma of the Papal Infallibility
  5. While the forms may be slightly different both churches, Roman and Orthodox share the baptism, confirmation, communion, confession, and marriage. In certain cases (crazy, running away) Orthodox accepts the divorce
  6. Orthodox does not accept the Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Harmony of Religions (e-Doctorate) e-Doctorate: Ahimsa Business (Non-Violence)
