In many Greek Orthodox parishes the Feast of the Three Hierarchs is combined with a celebration of Greek Letters. This usually includes special events which are dedicated to the preservation and promulgation of the ideals of Orthodox Christianity and Hellenic education. The ThreeHierarchs were great men of letters who were not only defenders of Orthodox Christianity, but supporters of Greek learning*.
*The relationship of these Fathers of the Church to education and learning is addressed in an article on our web site by Rev. Dr. Demetrios J. Constantelos entitled "Hellenic Paideia and Church Fathers – Educational Principles and Cultural Heritage."
