Product Description

This clear and accessible introduction to the history and practice of the Eastern Churches describes the life of the Orthodox from the rise of the Emperor Constantine in 312 through the year 2000. John Binns discusses the Orthodox approach to the themes of liturgy, theology, monastic life and spirituality, iconography, mission, politics as well as the schism between East and West. A final chapter examines the response of the Churches to the new freedom following the collapse of communism and the prospects for the future.
