"Fortesque's trilogy on the eastern churches are classics in the library of books in English on Oriental Christianity. At the time of their publication they had a ground- breaking effect in bringing an awareness of the broader Christian world to westerners. To this day they remain among the most readable and authoritative sources of information about the churches to the east of Rome." - Sidney Griffith, The Catholic University of America
