A History of the Holy Eastern Church: The Patriarchate of Alexandria

ISBN: 978-1-59333-050-7
The first volume of an ambitious project to document the history of the early church, this is one of John Mason Neale’s crowning achievements.

Beginning with the traditions of St. Mark’s foundation of the Egyptian church, the developments of Christianity are traced up through the controversies associated with Nestorius and the Council of Chalcedon. In Neale’s characteristically readable style, the early stages of Eastern Christianity and its noteworthy figures are presented here with historical accuracy and authority. The origins of monasticism, the troubles and triumphs of St. Athanasius, the Arian heresy, and the ecumenical councils are all treated in this important study of the church in Egypt.
