Two leading academic scholars offer the first comprehensive source reader on the Eastern Orthodox church for the English-speaking world. Designed specifically for students and accessible to readers with little or no previous knowledge of theology or religious history, this essential, one-of-a-kind work frames, explores, and interprets Eastern Orthodoxy through the use of primary sources and documents. Lively introductions and short narratives that touch on anthropology, art, law, literature, music, politics, women’s studies, and a host of other areas are woven together to provide a coherent and fascinating history of the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition.

Bryn Geffert, Theofanis G. Stavrou

Bryn Geffert is librarian of the college and lecturer in the department of history at Amherst College and formerly associate professor of Russian area studies at St. Olaf College. Theofanis Stavrou is professor of history and director of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Minnesota.

Stavrou's Eastern Orthodox Christianity: The Essential Texts is a most welcome resource for individuals seeking access to standard texts of the Orthodox tradition, as well as scholars [who] teach Orthodox Christian history and theology."-Brenda Llewellyn Ihssen, Reading Religion -- Brenda Llevellyn Ihssen Reading Religion "[A] superb collection."-Kristine Q.
