Professor of Theology; Constantinos Nikolakopoulos, was elected on October 16 for a two-year term as the Dean of the Orthodox Theology Department at the University of Munich.

The newly elected Dean succeeds the former Dean, Professor Athanasios Vletsis.

Nikolakopoulos had joined the Department in 1985 and for many years he has been teaching the fundamental aspects of Orthodox Theology.

The teaching staff at the Department include the newly elected Daniel Benga from Romania, Athanasios Vletsis and the theologian-jurist, Dr. Anargyros Anapliotis, who holds the position of Scientific Associate and Consultant.

The Orthodox Theology Department became an autonomous institution within the university in 1994.

It is open to all students from the Orthodox Patriarchates and Autocephalous Churches, as well as students of the two Theological Schools, the Roman Catholic and the Evangelical.
