A Look Inside
Main Description
From diverse international and multi-disciplinary perspectives, the contributors to this volume analyse the experiences, challenges and responses of orthodox churches to the foundational transformations associated with the dissolution of the USSR. Those transformations heightened the urgency of questions about Orthodox identity and relations with the world - states, societies, and the religious and cultural other.The volume focuses on six distinct concepts: orthodox identity, perceptions of the 'other,' critiques of the West, European values, interreligious progress, and new and uncharted challenges that have arisen with the expansion of Russian Orthodox activity.
