The Orthodox Church in the Byzantine Empire

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Paperback edition, published in 1990 by the Clarendon press; first published in 1986.

Includes a list of abbreviations, list of Rulers, Popes and Patriarchs, and an introduction. Found at the back of the book is a bibliographical note, glossary, index. and several black and white pull-out maps. Footnotes are found throughout the book.

This book describes the role of the medieval Orthodox Church in the Byzantine Empire (c.600-c.1453). As an integral part of its policy it was (as in western Christianity) closely linked with many aspects of everyday life both official and otherwise. It was a formative period for Orthodoxy. It had to face doctrinal problems and heresies; at the same time it experienced the continuity and deepening of its liturgical life. While holding fast to the traditions of the fathers and the councils, it saw certain developments in doctrine and liturgy as also in administration. Part I discusses the landmarks in ecclesiastical affairs within the Empire as well as the creative influence exercised on the Slavs and the increasing contacts with westerners particularly after 1204. Part II gives a brief account of the structure of the medieval Orthodox Church, its officials and organization, and the spirituality of laity, monks, and clergy.

Condition is as new. The corners are very slightly rubbed. Clean and fresh with a tight binding.
