    $24.95

    Nicaea, the site of the First Ecumenical Council (325) and the capital of the Byzantine Empire in exile during theLatin occupation of Constantinole (1204 - 1261) following the Fourth Crusade has an important, albeit neglected, role in ecclesiastical and political history. With he book, Professor Clive Foss, a meticulous historian, takes a significant step in rectifying that neglect. As he tells us, his initial objective was to provide a comprehensible English translation of the two thirteenth century encomia delivered by Theodora Laskaris and Thodore Metochites. The intent was to make these important sources accessible to the contemporary reader; amd in this he has succeeded notably. But, in addition, there is a major bonus. The initial objective blossomed into a history of Nicaea from the third to the fourteenth centuries, which will interest general readers of history and the specialist as well. . Learn More
  9. Guide for a Church Under Islam: The Sixty-Six Canonical Questions

    Guide for a Church Under Islam: The Sixty-Six Canonical Questions

    $23.95

    In the Christian East, the pastoral manuals of the Church took a literary form known as “Questions/Answers.” The authors of these canonical works were bishops and priests who usually wrote to guide clergy in addressing issues arising from diocesan and parish life. Unlike any of these other guides, in the present work an entire church subject to Islamic persecution sought the counsel of its sole Eastern sister church that was free from Muslim conquest. This pastoral guide for a church under Islam sets forth a pattern meant for a patriarchate to apply in addressing issues arising in a society under the domination of an alien religion that regarded itself as superior by nature. In addition to the main issue, the twelfth-century document has a number of interesting features relevant for Church history, including its record of ancient Christian practices regarding liturgy, fasting, preparation for the Eucharist, burial of the dead, deaconesses, and the internal life of Arabic Christians living in what would become modern Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, and Syria. The translation as well as its annotations and introductory history represent a time capsule of the Church’s history in the aftermath of the Muslim conquests of the Middle East and just before the taking of Constantinople in 1204 by the Latin Crusaders.
