The Orthodox Church in the Byzantine Empire


This interpretive analysis describes the important role of the medieval Orthodox Church during its formative period. The first section discusses landmarks in ecclesiastical affairs within the Empire and the increasingly influential contacts with neighbors. Part II examines the nature and structure of the Church, its officials and organization, its form of monasticism, the development of the eucharist and the liturgical year, and the spirituality of laity, monks, and clergy.
