Who we are

We are the St Theosevia Centre for the Study of Christian Spirituality. The Centre was founded in the early 1980s by a group of theologians and other academics and ecumenists, who were members of churches in the eastern Orthodox and the western traditions of Christianity. The foundation’s object is to promote understanding between Christians of different churches, particularly between east and west. The Centre is based at St Theosevia House, 2, Canterbury Rd, Oxford.

Who is St Theosevia? She is not a prominent saint, but is believed to have been the wife of the famous Cappadocian theologian and Bishop, St Gregory of Nyssa (ca AD 333-398). Two houses next door, founded earlier and under a separate Trust, are named after St Gregory and his sister St Macrina.
