This interpretive analysis describes the important role of the medieval Orthodox Church during its formative period. The first section discusses landmarks in ecclesiastical affairs within the Empire and the increasingly influential contacts with neighbors. Part II examines the nature and structure of the Church, its officials and organization, its form of monasticism, the development of the eucharist and the liturgical year, and the spirituality of laity, monks, and clergy.Reviews"Excellent introduction to the interplay of church and state in Byzantine history."--Joseph Byrne, West Georgia College"The definitive survey of the history of the Byzantine church in one volume."--Journal of Religion"At last there is a scholarly, sympathetic, readable, monograph-length history in English of the church of the Byzantine empire. Educated general readers and interested students, as well as scholars moving out of their narrow specialities, now have a place to go to learn about the history of the Byzantine church."--American Historical Review"Quite unique in its scrutiny of Byzantine history from the vantage point of its ecclesiastical development. ... A significant and most valuable achievement. ... Both the novice and the specialist in Byzantine history will find this book an invaluable assemblage of information and digest of perspectives, of use for years to come."--Modern Greek Studies Yearbook"Hussey's vast knowledge of the subject, eminently readable style, and admirable organization blend harmoniously to produce a massive, thorough presentation of the Byzantine church ... it will become one of the standard reference works on the church of Byzantium."--Speculum
