PD Dr. Ciprian Burlacioiu
Summer Semester 2013
Ciprian Burlacioiu is postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the chair for Patristic Studies and History of Christianity in the Non-Western World (Asia, Africa, Latin America), Department of Protestant Theology, 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 the summer term 2013 he is junior researcher in residence at the CAS and 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".
