Editorial Reviews

"In sum, this is an excellent collection, and Loosley and O'Mahony are to be congratulated for gathering together so many fine contributors and producing such a smoothly edited, lucid, and useful collection that very much deserves a place in courses on Eastern Christianity and Middle Eastern history and culture." -- Dr. Adam DeVille, University of Saint Francis (http://easternchristianbooks.blogspot.com)
