The Church in History Series from St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press balances the abundance of church histories written from a Western Christian point of view. The series authors—in the unique position of being Orthodox scholars conversant with Western scholarship—have taken on the task of analyzing complicated primary sources and critiquing modern scholarly literature to guide readers through the maze of centuries of church formation and life.
This collection presents the first four volumes of the series. Veselin Kesich’s volume kicks off the series, examining the formation of the church, beginning with the earliest Christian community in Jerusalem and ending with the expansion of Christianity into various regions of the Roman Empire. Next John Meyendorff describes the expansion of Christianity in the East and the West in the fifth, sixth, and seventh centuries. The third volume is Andrew Louth’s text, which gives an account of the church in the period from the end of the Sixth Ecumenical Synod in 681 to the Battle of Manzikert in 1071. And finally, Aristeides Papadakis looks at the developments in the churches of the East and West in the High Middle Ages, particularly the rise of the papacy.
