Book Description Cambridge University Press March 1986, 1986. Paper Back. Condition: New. The only study in English of the history of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople from the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the Greek war of independence in 1821. Runciman's seemingly effortless comprehensiveness illuminates the Orthodox Church's inner structure, its relationship to the Sultanate, its contacts with Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, and Anglican churches, and its theological and philosophical developments. Included in this investigation is the short, strange episode of the Calvinist patriarch, Cyril Lucaris. This book is indispensable for a complete understanding of the relationship between Eastern and Western Christendom, as well as the pilgrimage of the Orthodox church during its darkest age. 453 pp. Seller Inventory # 153037
