The David Allan Hubbard Library is pleased to announce that it has received a $10,000 grant from the Virginia H. Farah Foundation.
The Library will use the grant to establish the Virginia H. Farah Foundation Orthodox Studies Collection. These materials will support students doing research on the Orthodox Churches and their contexts as well as strengthen the Library’s overall holdings on Christianity around the world. According to Associate Provost for Library and Information Technology, David Bundy, “We are thrilled that this Foundation so deeply committed to the ministries of the Orthodox Church is partnering with us. The Library’s goal to collect and make available a comprehensive depiction of Christian thought and worship would be impossible without the expertise and generosity of contributors like them.”
Each year the Virginia H. Farah Foundation funds the humanitarian efforts, missionary labor, education, and scholarly work of organizations committed to the Orthodox Church. The Foundation hopes these projects will help spread the Orthodox Christian message while improving the quality of life on earth.

Great news! Thank you for sharing it…Daniela
This is awesome. I can’t wait to read these sources! Will they buy the Philokalia collection?
Greetings Steve! Thanks for your interest. Actually, this will constitute a collection of core bibligraphic materials including recent critical editions of Orthodox theology, church history, bibliographies, and commentaries, just to name a few. Materials will be drawn from various places. We hope that you will find it helpful in your work!
