From June 3–6, 2010, SVS Dean Fr. John Behr and faculty member Dr. Peter Bouteneff participated in an international patristics conference at the Volos Academy for Theological Studies in Greece. The conference was organized in collaboration with the Orthodox Christian Studies Program of Fordham University, the Chair of Orthodox Theology of Münster University, and the Romanian Institute for Inter-Orthodox, Inter–Confessional, and Inter-Religious Studies (INTER) Cluj-Napoca. The conference, titled "Neo-Patristic Synthesis or Post-Patristic Theology: Can Orthodox Theology Be Contextual?" included an impressive list of European and U.S. patristics scholars.
