      It gives me great pleasure to announce that Rev. Raban Eugene Edip Aydin has
      joined the SOR Editorial Board. Raban Eugene is pursuing his doctoral
      studies at Princeton Theological Seminary in the field of Early Church
      History and Ecumenics under the supervision of Professor Kathleen McVey.

      Eugene (Edip) Aydin is a native of Tur�Abdin, a region in southeast
      Anatolia, Turkey. He was born in 1971 in the village of Gundukshukro
      (Gundukke d-�Ito) in the vicinity of Nisibis, the town of St. Ephrem. After
      completing his elementary education in the village, Eugene entered Mor
      Gabriel�s Seminary in 1982 where he received training in both Syriac
      language and literature as well as in traditional Syriac theology and
      liturgy.

      Following his secondary education in Turkey, Eugene went to England to
      pursue his theological studies at Heythrop College, University of London,
      where he earned a Bachelor�s Degree in Divinity in 1995. Next, he went to
      Oxford University as a Visiting Student and spent a year at the Oriental
      Institute where he followed the Master of Syriac Studies course under the
      supervision of the renowned Syriac scholar Dr. Sebastian Brock.

      In August of 1997, he joined St. Vladimir�s Orthodox Theological Seminary at
      Crestwood, New York where he completed the three-year Master of Divinity
      program and graduated on May 20, 2000. The subject of his thesis was The
      History of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch in North America:
      Challenges and Opportunities.

      On Sunday, October 7, 2001, he was tonsured as a monk (dayroyo) by His
      Holiness Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East at
      St. Ephrem�s Monastery in Damascus, Syria and given the name Eugene (Awgin),
      in honor of Mor Awgin of Tur Izlo. On August 4, 2002 he was ordained to the
      priesthood at Mor Gabriel Monastery by His Eminence Archbishop Mor Timotheos
      Samuel Aktas of Tur�Abdin.

      SOR stands to benefit from Raban Eugene's scholarship and devotion to the
      church.
