Neale’s History of the Holy Eastern Church

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Neale’s History of the Holy Eastern Church. Three parts of the History were published, the first two during his lifetime and the third posthumously: The Patriarchate of Alexandria, the General Introduction, and The Patriarchate of Antioch, edited by George Williams. This work was Neale’s peculiar interpretation of Orthodox history, doctrine, and practice. His aim was to bring the ancient branch of Christendom closer to his readers. The period between the publication of Neale’s History of the Holy Eastern Church and the formation of the Eastern Church Association was when he produced the bulk of his literary expressions of Eastern Orthodoxy.
