IOCS- The Way...

Hi Ferdia, from what people have previously said to me about this course, and my own personal experience having owned it few month now, it is very much centered to the Byzantine Orthodox views.

One example is that one of the lecturers was said to have "converted to Orthodoxy from Coptic Christianity" emphasising that they do not see the Oriental Orthodox family as being Orthodox.

There are some things on Orthodoxy in there which are interesting and it is a good course for someone trying to get a very broad and basic understanding of what Orthodoxy is considered to be from the Byantine perspective but at the time times is EXTREMELY byzantine centric.

I hope someone could go into more detail on this or give a view.
