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.
