Holy Trinity Seminary of Jordanville, NY will officially begin its academic year of 2012 - 2013 marking the 100th anniversary of the second edition of the Patriarchal text of the New Testament by the memorable professor of Chalke Mr. Vasileios Antoniades which was published by the expense of the Patriarch of Constantinople Constantine the 5th and pious Christians. At the same time it honors the students who have shown especial zeal for the learning of the ecclesiastical text of the New and Old Testament which they use at the same time with the Slavonic translation, which is the only translation that was made in the Church without there being schisms and dogmatic conflicts. The seminarians use both the Greek and the Slavonic text understanding that the translations in English do not fully convey the depth of  various particularities of  the Greek text.  They use this knowledge in the theological as well as practical  - pastoral subjects of the school. Beginning this year they will also be  exposed to the Greek text of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.

Holy Trinity Seminary called as the guest speaker, the Senior Professor of New Testament and Greek, Mr. Maurice Arthur Robinson of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, who is well known from the publication of the Byzantine  Greek text of the New Testament. Mr. Robinson, apart from this publication has published more than 35 related academic articles and recorded the entire New Testament in Greek  

Other people contributing to the presentation are the Very Rev. George Dragas who will be  talking about the text of the New Testament and the Fathers of the Church and Dr. Nicholas Adamou who will be talking about the Byzantine tradition of the Greek New Testament and the work of Antoniades.
