Quick Overview

Patriarch Photios of Constantinople is one of the outstanding churchmen of all time. Revered by the Orthodox Church as a saint and champion of Orthodoxy, Patriarch Photios has been studied hitherto primarily in light of the events of the ninth-century controversy between the Orthodox and Latin Churches.
The present volume studies Patriarch Photios as an intellectual, an encyclopedist, a teacher....a voracious student of anything that books could offer... a strong upholder of Orthodoxy, the saviour of Constantinople, the father of his flock and a person of enormous compassion. More than anything else, it is the Patriarch's humanity that shines forth from his letters which Professor White presents here for the first time in an english translation.
