Beschreibungen

This book explores the changes underwent by the Orthodox Churches of Eastern and Southeastern Europe as they came into contact with modernity. The movements of religious renewal among Orthodox believers appeared almost simultaneously in different areas of Eastern Europe at the end of the nineteenth and during the first decades of the twentieth century. This volume examines what could be defined as renewal movement in Eastern Orthodox traditions. Some case studies include the God Worshippers in Serbia, religious fraternities in Bulgaria, the Zoe movement in Greece, the evangelical movement among Romanian Orthodox believers known as Oastea Domnului (The Lord’s Army), the Doukhobors in Russia, and the Maliovantsy in Ukraine. This volume provides a new understanding of processes of change in the spiritual landscape of Orthodox Christianity and various influences such as other non-Orthodox traditions, charismatic leaders, new religious practices and rituals.

Fills a gap in the studies on Orthodox Christianity in Europe Interdisciplinary and inter-regional influences, as well as in-depth and contextualized studies of specific case studies Explains the novelty of the renewal movements research in Christianity worldwide
“Capturing a diversity of renewal movements from across the Orthodox world, this volume offers a unique contribution to the study of Eastern Orthodoxy and its encounter with modernity. The movements discussed here are unstudied and little understood both within the region and more broadly. This volume is especially welcome as, by bringing together the work of esteemed scholars from across the region, it facilitates for the first time comparative conversations on the nature and processes of Orthodox renewal in Eastern Europe.” (James A. Kapaló, University College Cork, Ireland)“I was impressed by several outstanding features of this volume: its thematic scope and diversity; its novelty; expertise and reliability of the scholars/editors writing individual chapters, as well as the thematic harmony and balance achieved despite a very heterogeneous set of topics. I do not remember that such a variety of renewal movements from South Eastern Europe has been tackled in a single volume. One of the major strengths of this work is its interdisciplinary scope and international appeal. This is inherent in its versatile contents and the participation of an international group of esteemed scholars in their respective fields of research. Although the number of books and studies covering the area of Eastern Orthodox Christianity has increased since the fall of the Berlin Wall, there is still a huge deficit in the respective academic research concerning specialized topics such as this.” (Milan Vukomanovi?, University of Belgrade, Serbia)
