Book/Article Suggestions?
« on: November 25, 2008, 07:39:14 PM »
I'm looking for book/article suggestions for the following subjects:

- The lifting of anathemas
- Intercommunion between Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox Churches
- Liturgical differences between Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox Churches
- An overview of Church History from an Oriental Orthodox perspective

I am currently reading this:

"Does Chalcedon Divide or Unite?: Towards convergences in Orthodox Christology" Edited by Paulos Gregorios, William H. Lazareth and Nikos A. Nissiotis....this book is helping me quite a bit and I hope it will do the same for you as well.

Peace

Also, an article that is more recent:

http://www.svots.edu/Faculty/John-Erickson/articles/beyond-dialogue.html/

Yes, this an Eastern orthodox source...but it is helpful nonetheless....

Enjoy...

A great book on the Council of Chalcedon from an OO perspective would be Father V.C. Samuel's "The Council of Chalcedon Re-examined" (http://www.amazon.com/Council-Chalcedon-Re-Examined-V-Samuel/dp/1401016456/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1227722961&sr=8-1 ) ...I haven't had the chance to read this but everyone who has read it has nothing but good things to say about it.....so I think this is a great place to get the OO perspective on Church History post Chalcedon...

I found the following book interesting.  Interesting book, but the author probably doesn't write about anything you already don't know:

http://www.amazon.com/Prayers-East-Traditions-Eastern-Christianity/dp/0800636554/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1227805258&sr=1-2

Also, although not a book/article, I found this video on Coptic Orthodox iconorgraphy.  Haven't watched it the entire documentary yet, but perhaps you'll find it interesting:
