Overview

The greatest Christian split of all has been that between east and west—between Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox—a rift that is still apparent today. In East and West, Henry Chadwick provides a compelling and balanced account of the emergence of divisions between Rome and Constantinople. Drawing on his encyclopedic command of the literature, he starts with the roots of the divergence in apostolic times and takes the story to the fifteenth-century Council of Florence.

Henry Chadwick’s years of experience as an ecumenicist inform his discussion of Christians in relation to each other, to Jews, and to non-Christian gentiles. He displays a distinctive concern for the factors—theological, personal, political, and cultural—that caused division in the church. His masterly exposition of the complex issues discussed at the Ecumenical Councils is characteristically clear and fair. This is a work of immense learning, written with sensitivity and spirit. Its fascinating detail and full analysis make it invaluable to anyone interested in how this lasting rift in the Church developed.
