Professor Pentiuc Spreads God’s Word in Romania

The Reverend Dr. Eugen J. Pentiuc, professor of Scripture and Semitic Languages at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, spread the Word of God far and wide during his trip to Romania in May 2017—both through major media, and through a virtual classroom.

Trinitas TV, the official media station of the Romanian Orthodox Church, broadcast a 2-hour interview with Fr. Eugen in nine segments of programming. In that interview, Fr. Eugen spoke about his work on the first digital Study Bible, The Bible in its Traditions, created by the École Biblique et Archéologique Française in Jerusalem, to which he contributed a new translation of the Book of Hosea, with footnotes. He also spoke about the importance of Scripture in the Orthodox Christian Church, and the connection between the Old and New Testaments.

Additionally, Fr. Eugen led a section of a Bible translation workshop in Bucharest, Romania, titled, “The Role of the Bible in Orthodoxy,” which was attended virtually by students from Romania, Greece, Russia, Serbia, and Albania. The workshop was part of an online master’s program organized by the NIDA Institute (American Bible Society) and the Foundation of San Pellegrino.

While in Bucharest, Fr. Eugen was received in a private audience by His Beatitude Daniel, patriarch of Romania, who conferred upon him the Order of St. John Chrysostom in recognition of his contribution to Orthodox theology in America. Father Eugen is also Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Holy Cross School of Theology, Brookline, MA.

Axios, Fr. Eugen, and many blessed years!
