The Orthodox Church in the Byzantine Empire

Oxford University Press

An account is given of the patriarchate of the Orthodox Church in the period 925–1025, following the death of Patriarch Nicholas I Mysticus in 925, which emphasizes the predominance of Constantinople during the period concerned. The first section of the chapter covers cooperation and criticism during the period 925–70. The second section describes the imperial advance in the East, and covers the lack of success in converting the Muslims and the ultimately disastrous consequences of encouraging the expansion of Syrian Jacobites (monophysites) and Armenian monophysites into areas presided over by the orthodox Byzantine Greek Orthodox Church. The third section discusses the rather more successful consolidating missionary work in the Caucasian and North Pontic regions of Russia, and the conflict over Bulgaria. The last section discusses Byzantium and south Italy.

Keywords:   Armenian monophysites, Bulgaria, Byzantium, Italy, mediaeval history, missionaries, monophysites, Muslims, Orthodox Church, Patriarch Nicholas I Mysticus, Russia, Syrian Jacobites
