Life
Over next several years, Fr. Dumitru was moved among a number of prisons. He was held in isolation for months at a time until he was released in 1963. He then began working for the [[Holy Synod]] of the Romanian Orthodox Church. In 1965 he was asked by the Romanian State Department of Cults to write articles and take part in studies as the government attempted to project an image of religious freedom in Romania. Fr. Dumitru was permitted to travel and attend worldwide conferences.
In 1968 he was permitted to attend conferences in Freiberg and Heidelberg. The same year he lectured at Oxford University in the United Kingdom. Then, in 1973, he retired but continued as a consultant professor for doctoral studies. During the succeeding years he was honored often, including receiving ''Doctor Honoris Causa'' honorary doctoral degrees from the University of Thessaloniki in 1976; [[St. Sergius Orthodox Theological Institute (Paris, France)|St-Sergius Orthodox Institute]] in Paris, France, in 1981; from the Faculty of Orthodox Theology of Belgrade in 1982; from the University of Theology of Athens in 1991; and from the University of Bucharest in 1992.
On [[October 5]], 1993, Fr. Dumitru Stăniloae died at the age of 90.
