Orthodox Christian





Paris 2006

Edited by Christine Chaillot



In this book Christine Chaillot, the editor, gathered articles giving an introduction to the history of the Orthodox Church and its different jurisdictions in the 20th century in Western Europe, country by country. The main aim of these articles is to allow people to discover, or to make better known, the genesis and history of these Orthodox communities in Western Europe and also to understand the present situation of the Orthodox Church in a Western Europe now united and without borders. It is hoped that this book may be profitable not only at the level of Christian ecumenical and inter-religious dialogues, but specially for the Orthodox themselves, who often ignore these histories so close to us in time and space.
