Byzantine History Professor of the University of Copenhagen Baptized Orthodox


On Pentecost Sunday, 31 May 2015, His Grace Bishop Makarios together with a group of priests and deacons celebrated the Divine Liturgy and the Service of Kneeling in a Romanian parish of Copenhagen. On this occasion, the Danish professor Jon Gissel, a Byzantine historian of the University of Copenhagen, was received into the Orthodox Church through Baptism, after nearly three years of spiritual catechism. His Grace gave as a gift a silver crucifix modeled after the Northern Cross, an icon of the Holy Prophet and Forerunner John, a towel, and several books on Romanian Orthodox spirituality in Danish.
