Editorial Reviews


"wide-ranging and authoritative treatment of the Eastern Orthodox churches..."
-Christian Century

"This book is a useful reminder of how much the world has changed since 1000, when the Byzantine Empire was stronger than any western European state, or since 1400, when Byzantine scholars came to broaden the scope of the Italian Renaissance."
-Warren Treadgold, Speculum-A Journal of Medieval Studies

"Thankfully, volume five of the Cambridge History of Christianity enables scholars of Christian cultures to more easily explore issues of the eastern traditions...An excellent seventy-eight page bibliography and an extensive index crown this work."
-Jennifer Spock, A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

"...inspires awe....enormous diversity of of excellent scholars....stands out from rivals by its sheer scale....provide an effective structure....identification and development of themes is thoroughly successful....deeply impressive..."
--Philip Jenkins

Book Description

It celebrates the resilience shown in the face of hostile regimes and social pressures in this often-neglected period of Orthodox history.
