The Great Church in Captivity 1960–1962

Steven Runciman

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Steven Runciman’s The Great Church in Captivity presents a historical overview of the development of the Greek Orthodox Church, especially during its ‘captivity’ under the Ottoman Empire. Beginning with a recounting of the church’s circumstances at the end of the Byzantine Empire, Runciman carefully details the myriad of external concerns—politics, economics, and the need for ecumenical and interfaith dialogue—which shaped the development of Greek Orthodox theology and culture.
