Abstract:

Despite over 200 million adherents, Eastern Orthodox Christianity attracts little scholarly attention. While more-covered religions emerge as powerful transnational forces, Eastern Orthodoxy appears doggedly local, linked to the ethnicity and land of the now marginalized Eastern Europe.

The picture that emerges is less of a people stubbornly refusing modernization, more of a people seeking to mainta.
