Summary:For a long time scholars have typically assumed Greek Orthodoxy to be a static religious tradition. Although this public perception continues, the immutability of the Greek Orthodox tradition has been questioned by scholars over the past few years. This book continues this line of reasoning, but brings it into the centre of contemporary discussion. Presenting case studies from different periods of history up to the present day, the authors trace different aspects in the development of innovation in Orthodox Christianity in the Greek-speaking world and among the Diaspora.
