Overview

This two-volume series follows the journey and experiences of Macarius III (Zaim), patriarch of the Church of Antioch from 1647 to 1672. During his ministry, Macarius was summoned to Moscow at the request of the patriarch, and was a chief witness to the controversy surrounding reforms to Russian liturgical practices in the seventeenth century. This history, written by Macarius III’s son and traveling companion, Paul of Aleppo, provides an invaluable insight into the state of eastern Christianity under Ottoman occupation, as well as the attempts by Patriarch Nikon of Russia to conform the Russian liturgical practices to those of the Greeks.

About the Author

Paul of Aleppo (1627–1669), the son of Patriarch Macarius III (Zaim) of Antioch, was Archdeacon of the city of Aleppo (Syria). Paul was known for being a minister in the church as well as historical chronicler, and he accompanied his father on trips to Constantinople, Moldavia, Moscow, Ukraine, and Wallachia. During their journeys, they attempted to raise money for the Syrian Church, which was struggling under the mighty Ottoman yoke. He was also the author of History of the Patriarchs of Antioch.
