The Orthodox Eastern Church
1908. The author writes in the Preface: This little book is intended to supply not so much matter for controversy as a certain amount of information about the Orthodox Church. People in the West have too long forgotten that enormous mass of their fellow Christians who live on the other side of the Adriatic Sea and the river Vistula, and now that Anglicans especially have begun to take an interest in what they look upon as another branch of the Church, it seems regrettable that English Catholics as a rule have only the vaguest and the most inaccurate ideas about the people whom they confuse under the absurd name of Greeks. Chapter headings include: The Great Patriarchates; Rome and the Eastern Churches; The Faith and Rites of the Byzantine Church before the Schism; The Schism of Photius; The Schism of Cerularius; The Reunion Councils; The Crusades and the Byzantine Church; Under the Turk; Orthodox Theology; The Constitution of the Orthodox Church; The Orthodox Hierarchy; The Orthodox Faith; Orthodox Rites; and The Question of Reunion.
