    Aspects of political theology in the spiritual autobiography of Saint John of Kronstadt.Iuliu-Marius Morariu - 2018 - HTS Theological Studies 74 (4):1-5.
    It has been often said nowadays that since the fall of Constantinople, the Eastern-Orthodox Church has not been concerned with political theology. In this research, we will try to show that aspects of the aforementioned topic can be found even in works like the spiritual autobiographies from that space. Therefore, our analysis will focus on the diaries of an important Russian Orthodox priest, Saint John of Kronstadt, who lived in the second half of the 19th century and in the first (...)

    Aspects of political theology in the spiritual autobiography of Nicolas Berdiaev.Iuliu-Marius Morariu - 2019 - HTS Theological Studies 75 (4):1-4.
    Despite its importance for the understanding of ideas and the genesis of Nicholas Berdiaev's works, his spiritual autobiography, written at the end of his life, has not been fructified enough by contemporary research until today. Therefore, this research aims at bringing it into attention and emphasising the aspects of political theology it contains. The author investigates elements such as the philosopher's eschatological notes, his conception about freedom and slavery or about the superior human condition, trying to see how they influence (...)

    Bioethics in the Romanian space – A Brief Overview.Iuliu-Marius Morariu - 2016 - Philotheos 16:113-122.
    The issues of bioethics have been present in the Romanian space starting with the past century and have been tackled in different ways, according to context and the people interacting with them.

    The new Ukrainian Autocephalous Church and its image in the ecumenical space.Iuliu-Marius Morariu - 2020 - HTS Theological Studies 76 (3).

Praised by some Orthodox churches and damned by other, it was preceded by some attempts of negotiation initiated by the Ecumenical Patriarchate and by a few meetings between the representatives of the aforementioned institution, Russian Patriarchate and the Ukrainian local churches that was later recognised by Constantinople and (...)
