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
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

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:
