Book Description:

This Companion offers an unparalleled survey of the history, theology, doctrine, worship, art, culture and politics that make up the churches of Eastern Christianity. Eastern Christianity - whether Catholic or Orthodox, Chalcedonian or non-Chalcedonian - has a history as complex and fascinating as that of Western Christianity, and yet since the split between the Churches, this history has remained unknown to many people. Over the last few decades there has been a growing realization that in order to understand the history of Christianity, it is necessary to understand this history of the Eastern Church. This Companion brings together 25 of the leading scholars in the field to discuss both the history of Eastern Christianity and its present relevance. It offers full coverage to the Byzantine traditions (Greek, Slav, Romanian, and Georgian) and the Oriental traditions (Armenian, Assyrain, Coptic, Ethiopian, Syrian, and Indian) as well as Orthodox, Catholic and Reformed communities.

From the Back Cover:

Recent political events in the Middle East and eastern Europe have brought eastern Christianity to global attention. The Blackwell Companion to Eastern Christianity provides an unparalleled account of the history and development of these vital Christian traditions, at the same time placing contemporary events in their full context. The Companion provides authoritative and lively essays on the main Eastern Orthodox traditions, such as the Greek, Russian, and Georgian churches, as well as the Oriental Orthodox traditions, including the Armenian, Coptic, and Syrian churches.

The in-depth articles of the Companion, which are written by an international team of experts, offer a comprehensive survey of the history, theology, doctrine, worship, art, culture, and politics that make up the churches of Eastern Christianity. The Companion can also be used alongside the respected Blackwell Dictionary of Eastern Christianity (Blackwell, 1999), providing detailed discussions and assessments to complement the Dictionary’s shorter entries.
