ARCHBISHOP DEMETRIOS DELIVERS PAPARRIGOPOULOS LECTURE AT
QUEENS COLLEGE BYZANTINE CENTER 24TH ANNUAL AWARDS DINNER
New York, NY ? His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek
Orthodox Church in America, delivered The Constantinos D. Paparrigopoulos
Lecture at the 24th Annual Certificate of Achievement Awards Dinner of the
Center for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies of Queens College/City
University of New York on May 30th. The occasion also marked the

Through the Paparrigopoulos Lecture, eminent scholars in Classical
Byzantine or modern Greek studies deliver lectures at Queens College on the
general subject of the continuity of Hellenism and/or within the context of
contemporary problems confronting the Greek people. Entitled, "Yesterday's
Answers to Today's Questions: Points of Hellenic Orthodox Legacy",
Archbishop Demetrios' lecture focused on four basic questions:
Communication as "beautiful, complete, precise", as in the great
writers of antiquity and "Sacred", as revealed through the Orthodox Faith;
Human Co-existence, how democracy, as used by the ancient writers,
becomes the form of government which allows the Christian notion of
"community and service" to one another to be lived in the most complete
Fate of the world, a world which the ancients viewed with "love and
care", and which in Orthodoxy is affirmed as immense and timeless, having
been created by God;
And finally, The Fate of the Human Being, which underscores the
"priority of the human being" to "rediscover the supreme value of the human
being" because God became fully man.
Scholarships of $500 each are awarded annually to students of merit
who are enrolled in the Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies Program.
Archbishop Demetrios presented the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
scholarships to Panagis Alexatos and Georgia Belesis.
