Product Description

Containing over 700 articles, this dictionary allows the reader to explore Eastern Christian civilization in its cultural and religious riches. The articles are written by an international team of fifty contributors, including leading historians, theologians, linguists, philosophers, musicians, and scholars of liturgy and iconography.

The Blackwell Dictionary of Eastern Chrisianity covers the major living traditions of Eastern Christianity and some which are less familiar. It offers balanced treatment of Byzantine traditions (Greek, Slav, Romanian and Georgian), and the Oriental traditions (Armenian, Assyrian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Syrian, Indian), taking account of Orthodox, Catholic and Reformed communities.

"Highly recommended. Concise and reasonably complete coverage, carefully explaining distinctions among Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, the Church of the East, Eastern Catholicism, and dissident Eastern communities. An important addition for a poorly understood tradition."---Library Journal.

Editorial Reviews

"It includes almost 700 entries in a manageable volume that provides both a handy basis for study and a readable source for browsing ... Its major success results from the way in which it combines together information about all the churches of the Eastern traditions, and so allows their similarities and differences of thought, practice and history to be discerned ... This is a work that will be of use and interest to both specialist researchers and student readers, and it should be welcomed onto the shelves of both scholars and librarians." Islam and Christian Muslim Relations

"All libraries should have this handy volume." International Review of Biblical Studies

"There is plenty here to learn and inspire." European Journal of Theology
