Editorial Reviews

"Consistently highly readable and engrossing. This is an excellent overview of Eastern Christianity." (Expository Times)

"A masterful description of the major living traditions of Eastern Christianity. Its 24 chapters, each written by an accomplished scholar in the field, address the dominant ethnic and cultural categories of Eastern Christianity (Arab, Byzantine, etc.) along with their most characteristic features (liturgy, iconography, and hagiography). Each offers a concise, well-organized, and highly readable overview of the tradition in question, along with a representative bibliography ... Highly recommended." (CHOICE)

"Christian emigration, not least from the Middle East, means that there are growing communities of Eastern Christians in the West ... Eastern Christians are now companions to Western; and the latter will learn much about the former from this Blackwell Companion." (Church Times)

"A distinctive addition to the companion series and to its chosen sphere of knowledge." (Reference Reviews)

"A worthwhile collection, and one that should prove useful." (Ecclesiastical History)
