I first presented these comments at the 44th Annual Convention of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (New Orleans, November 2012), as part of a roundtable discussion that honored Theofanis G. Stavrou’s fifty years of service to Mediterranean, Slavic, and Eastern Orthodox Studies. With a few alterations and updates, these words stand as an appropriate conclusion to this volume of essays exploring the main topical interests—Eastern Orthodox Church history, Modern Greek literature, Russian history and culture, the history of Cyprus, and several other areas—in the truly outstanding scholarly career of Theo Stavrou.
