Overview

This rich anthology offers new insight into an ancient form of Christianity still little understood in the West. The essays introduce the six ancient and Oriental Orthodox churches—Egyptian Copts, Armenians, Syrians, Indian Malankara, Ethiopian, and Eritrean—through their distinctive tradition of prayer and worship. This volume provides both a survey of the history and theology of these Eastern Orthodox traditions as well as an anthology of their personal prayers, blessings, and liturgical prayers. The collection highlights the distinctiveness of Eastern Christian spirituality along with its connections to Western theology and worship.

Richard Marsh (1857–1915), born Richard Bernard Heldmann, was a prolific, bestselling author of fiction in the genres of horror, crime, and romance. Marsh began his career by writing adventure stories for magazines, later earning coeditorship of Union Jack magazine. The Beetle’s release in 1897 proved to be Marsh’s greatest commercial success, followed in 1900 by the publication of The Goddess: A Demon. Marsh went on to amass a bibliography of more than eighty books before his death.
