Although Orthodox theology has a long and rich tradition, there has been no significant interest in environmental issues recorded in its long history. Namely, it is only in the last few decades that we find environmental preoccupation in the reflections of several Orthodox philosophers and theologians. Their efforts are based on the theology of creation, the ascetic practice, and rich Eastern liturgy. Most notable in Orthodox theology is Ioannis Zizioulas, while significant contributions were also made by Amvrosij Ermakov and Elizabeth Theokritoff, and others. However, there has been a new momentum in expanding the ecological-theological horizon to combat further ecological threats and problems prompted by the dialogical openness of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Pope Francis, who recognized ecology as a great challenge for ecumenism.
