J. M. Neale and the Quest for Sobornost


Oxford University Press

This book has treated Neale’s career as it relates to his activities as an interpreter of Byzantium and Eastern Orthodoxy to the Victorian England of his day. He found in Orthodoxy a powerful weapon against Rome and for the High Church tradition in the Church of England. He significantly strengthened that tradition in realms of both scholarship and devotion, by showing the international existence and the extraordinary achievement of another form of non-Roman Catholic Christianity and by enriching the England Church’s worship and imaginative life though incorporation of the poetry, history, and hagiography of the neglected third of the Christian world. In producing his orientalist works, the wider aim of sobornost was constantly in Neale’s mind.

Keywords:   Eastern Orthodoxy, Byzantium Orthodoxy, High Church, Church of England, sobornost
