PD Dr. Ciprian Burlacioiu

Summer Semester 2013

Ciprian Burlacioiu – PortraitCiprian Burlacioiu is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Protestant Theology at LMU Munich. He is a Romanian, studied Orthodox theology and received a PhD from the University of Bucharest with a dissertation on ecumenical models of church union relevant in a united Europe.

During his Junior Researcher in Residency at CAS he is completing his habilitation thesis on the African Orthodox Church. This religious community emerged in New York in the 1920s and spread rapidly in the transatlantic triangle US – South Africa – East Africa through the medium of periodicals. As a remarkable example of early Christian internationalism this 'black' transatlantic Church is of particular interest for the history of globalisation in the early 20th century. In July 2013 Ciprian Burlacioiu will organize an interdisciplinary workshop on "Transatlantic networks of black religious organisations (USA – South Africa), 1890-1930".
