Abstract:

The Orthodox Byzantine tradition is still often undervalued and misunderstood in the Western Churches. This is a vivid introduction to the leading figures, key themes and values of this living and ancient form of Christian spirituality, which has endured and survived a recent history of systematic persecution. At the centre of the Byzantine experience are ideas which Western Christians share, and from which they still have much to learn: beauty, endurance and hopefulness.
