This book covers the major living tradiitons of Eastern Christianity and some which are less familiar. It offers balanced treatment of the Byzantine traditions (Greek, Slav, Romanian, Gregorian) and the Oriental traditions (Armenian, Assyrian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Syrian, Indian), taking account of Orthodox, Catholic and Reformed communities worldwide. Readers will be able to use this book as a basic source of information for differing Eastern Christian churches, and to help them locate information they would have difficulty finding elsewhere. The longer articles put terms, concepts, people and events into context, while offering ways to exploring unfamiliar connections and making useful comparisons.
