Overview

The History of the Holy Eastern Church offers readers with a masterful and invaluable introduction to the history, theology, piety, and worship of the Eastern Orthodox Church. The Rev. John Mason Neale, himself sympathetic to the Oxford movement, does a wonderful job of not only introducing the Orthodox Church to the English-speaking world (at a time when it was little more than a mystery of the East), but also going deeper into the mystical theology, worship, and peculiarities of the Eastern Church as compared with the West.

The first volume of this set serves as a general introduction to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Neale covers the geographical and national origins of the various Orthodox churches, the ecclesiology of the Orthodox Church, its liturgies and worship, the Church calendar, and various points of contention with the Western Church as a whole and the Roman Catholic Church in particular.

John Mason Neale (1818–1866) was a translator, scholar, hymn-writer, and priest in the Church of England. Born in London to an Anglican minister, Neale became fond of the Oxford Movement later in life and, as a result, found opposition from both his diocesan bishop and his congregation. Forced to resign, he spent most of his life working on translations of ancient hymns and liturgies, especially of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, as well as co-founding the Society of Saint Margaret and the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association. He was responsible for translating and introducing a number of ancient and Eastern hymns and liturgies to the English-speaking world. He was also, notably, a contributor to the Christmas hymn “Good Christian Men, Rejoice,” as well as the Boxing Day carol of “Good King Wenceslas.” His most popular historical works include History of the Holy Eastern Church and History of the so-called Jansenist Church of Holland. He is commemorated by both the Anglican churches (August 7) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (July 1).
