The ''Eastern'' in the title of this important reference work is comprehensive: it is meant to survey the Orthodox Church, as well as the non-Chalcedonian and Byzantine-rite Catholic churches. The usefulness of this volume is manifest because of the obscurity of so many points for the Western reader that are second nature to Eastern Christians: whether liturgical terminology (exaposteilarion, orthros, horologion, parakletike, triodion, orarion, etc.), historical (Christianity in Ethiopia, Armenia, India, etc., the ''Old Calendar'' controversies), doctrinal (deification, ecumenism, apophaticism, filioque), or hagiographical (Diadochus of Photike, John Maximovitch, Symeon the New Theologian). Its 700 articles also cover many personalities and developments of recent eastern Christian history with informed and accessible information extremely difficult to find elsewhere. Most entries include short bibliographies.

An Eighth Day View:

Containing over 700 articles, this "Dictionary" allows the reader to explore Eastern Christian civilization with its cultural and religious riches. The articles are written by a team of 50 international contributors, including leading historians, theologians, linguists, philosophers, patrologists, musicians, and scholars of liturgy and iconography.
