Product Description

In the Greek East & Latin West Andrew Louth gives an account of the Church from the time of the Sixth Ecumenical Synod in 681 to the Battle of Manzikert in 1071. Although "Greek East" and "Latin West" are becoming distinct entities during this time period, the author discusses each entity alongside of the other, by observing the points at which their destinies coincide or conflict and noting developments within the whole of the Church rather than laboriously discussing the eventual East/West schism.
Covering events both unique to each region (Iconoclasts in the East and the Carolingian Empire in the West) and shared in common (monastic reform, renaissance, and mission) Louth skillfully portrays two Christian civilizations that share much in their similarities, yet are increasingly incomprehensible to the another. Despite curious synchronisms between East and West, the author demonstrates how two paths diverged from a once common route, and how eventually Byzantine Orthodoxy defined the Greek East over against the Latin West in theological, religious, cultural, and political terms.

    Excellent work describing a central period in church history from a unique perspective--that of Eastern Christianity, which is an aspect largely ignored from that of the West.
