THE CHURCH IN HISTORY SERIES, VOLUME II
Imperial Unity and Christian Divisions
The Church AD 450--680
This systematic account of church history describes the expansion of Christianity in the fifth, sixth, and seventh centuries--from Ireland to the Indian Ocean and from Germany to Nubia. Throughout, the author pinpoints the seeds that produced eventual schisms between the churches of the eastern and western parts of the Christian Roman Empire and the Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian churches of the Middle East.
With a firm grasp on the complicated primary sources . . . [the author] skillfully takes the reader through the maze of these centuries.
-Jaroslav Pelikan, Sterling Professor of History emeritus, Yale University
Protopresbyter John Meyendorff (+ 1992), former dean of St Vladimir's Seminary, conceived The Church in History series.
THE CHURCH IN HISTORY SERIES of St Vladimir's Seminary Press balances the approaches of the abundance of church histories written from a Western Christian point of view. Series authors--in the unique position of being Orthodox scholars conversant with Western scholarship--have taken on the task of analyzing complicated primary sources and thoroughly critiquing modern scholarly literature to guide readers through the maze of centuries of church formation and life.
