A new translation of Metropolitan John's doctoral dissertation, first published in 1965. He lays out for us the foundational elements of his recasting of ''eucharistic ecclesiology,'' most widely recognized in fuller form in the influential Being as Communion (1985). The people of God, gathered around their Bishop, celebrating the Eucharist, constitute the central Orthodox experience and vision of the Church, a centrality which this primarily historical investigation seeks to uncover in the patristic literature of the first three Christian centuries.
