Saint Mary of Magdala

Saint Mary of Magdela is far more than just one of the Myrrhbearing Women the church remembers on the Third Sunday of Pascha; her life is of such great magnitude that it is referred to as the Primacy of Mary. That Mary of Magdala is venerated in the Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, several Protestant churches, and even in the Baha’i Faith tradition, speaks of her prominence.

Dr Eric T. Wallace will be making a presentation based on his recently published journal, A Year in the Holy Land, at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, 414 Valley Street, Willimantic, Connecticut, on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at 1:00 in the afternoon. Dr Wallace, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at the University of Connecticut, is also a tonsured Reader (Tikhon) in the Orthodox Church.

A Year in the Holy Land was published online at LuLu on July 18, 2016. In his discussion, Dr Wallace will detail his travels to the Jerusalem and other important Christian sites. His presentation at Holy Trinity will include both photos and narrative explaining the significance of the holy sites he visited and acquainting us with some of the people he met. Dr Wallace studied at Hebrew University during his year in Jerusalem. He also visited Egypt, Jordan, Russia, Turkey, Greece, and Italy during his year abroad.

Reader Tikhon was received into the Orthodox Church in 2003 while a student at Washington State University, where he was studying architecture. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics with a minor in documentary photography from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY. He then studied in Germany on a Fulbright grant, before beginning graduate studies in mathematics at Indiana University in Bloomington. Dr Wallace holds a doctorate in mathematics from Indiana University. He was awarded his degree in 2014.

Dr Wallace’s Holy Land presentation will be approximately 75 minutes long. Refreshments and informal discussion will follow. All are welcome.
