Rezensionen
"This book is written in scholarly fashion but is consistentlyhighly readable and engrossing. This is an excellent overview ofEastern Christianity." (Expository Times, November 2008)

"A masterful description of the major living traditions ofEastern Christianity. Its 24 chapters, each written by anaccomplished scholar in the field, address the dominant ethnic andcultural categories of Eastern Christianity (Arab, Byzantine, etc.)along with their most characteristic features (liturgy,iconography, and hagiography). Each offers a concise,well-organized, and highly readable overview of the tradition inquestion, along with a representative bibliography ... Highlyrecommended. Academic libraries and theological collections;upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers."(CHOICE)

"A distinctive addition to the companion series and to itschosen sphere of knowledge." (Reference Reviews)

"Christian emigration, not least from the Middle East,means that there are growing communities of Eastern Christians inthe West ... Eastern Christians are now companions to Western;and the latter will learn much about the former from this BlackwellCompanion." (Church Times)

"A worthwhile collection, and one that should prove useful."(Eccliastical History)"The Blackwell Companion to Eastern Christianity is quiteunlike anything else available. It provides a scholarly andauthoritative introduction to Eastern Christianity in its myriadvariety, covering all the different geographical regions from theBalkans to China and reaching across to the States, and includingall jurisdictions. It gives succinct accounts of their history anddoctrine, with separate sections on liturgy, iconography andhagiography. Brilliant!"
-Andrew Louth, University of Durham

"This latest addition to the Blackwell Companion seriesconstitutes the most comprehensive, authoritative and elegantaccount of the Eastern Churches ever published. Its twenty-fourchapters, each the work of a specialist, combine full accounts ofthe history and life of each church with a series of outstandingsurveys of their liturgical, iconographical and hagiographicaltraditions. The surveys of Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodoxliturgies are a formidable achievement and will be invaluable tostudents of liturgy Eastern and Western. This work is a definitivesynthesis which will stimulate interest in the Eastern Churches ata time when many of them are under threat because of politicalupheavals. It will also provide a starting point for the furtherstudy of their fascinating traditions. Scholarship will long be inthe debt of Ken Parry, the editor and organizing mind behind thiswonderful collection."
-John Healey, University of Manchester

"A fitting companion volume to Parry's The BlackwellDictionary of Eastern Christianity, this large enterprise willbecome an indispensable reference work for the study of EasternChristianities from Egypt to China to USA. Particularly welcome isits emphasis on varying liturgical, iconographical, architectural,and hagiographical traditions."
