Halki Seminary

  • DSC00655
    The Patriarchal Theological Seminary of Halki is located on the Turkish island known as Heyelbiada in the Bosporus straits. It was closed in 1971 by the Turkish government and is the subject of much controversy since it is the only seminary in Turkey and the position of Ecumenical Patriarch can only be filled by a Turkish citizen.

Stavros Stavridis

If the US had diplomats of the calibre of George Horton in the Middle East today who understood the customs oand languages of the region , then they wouldn't hate us.

His thirty plus years experience would make him one of America's best diplomats to have ever served in the Near East.
Before the US severed its relations with the Ottoman Empire in April 1917, he was the Dean of the diplomatic corps in Smyrna and also represented Entente interests (Britain, France, Italy and Russia).

Searching for Ithaka

  • Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you're destined for. But don't hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you're old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you've gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her you wouldn't have set out. She has nothing left to give you now. And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean. C. P. Cavafy
