Father John Meyendorff ([actual symbol not reproducible] 1992), former dean of St Vladimir's Seminary, is one of the pioneers of the modern ecumenical movement. As a historian of the church and patristics scholar, and as a longtime participant in numerous ecumenical encounters, he is uniquely qualified to present this evaluation of the search for unity between East and West over the last millennium. Prepared shortly before his untimely death, this collection of previously published and unpublished materials challenges the churches today to continue their search for authentic unity.
In a time when relations between East and West have suffered numerous setbacks - in the former Soviet Union, in the former Yugoslavia, and elsewhere - Meyendorff calls upon theologians to remain ecumenical in their theology. What is really at stake, he affirms, "is not the preservation of cultural categories shaped in the distant past, but the true 'catholicity' of the Christian message for the world today."
