Introduction to Orthodox Law


Based on course notes of forty years of teaching, this Introduction to Orthodox Canon Law is a foundational text for students. Chapters cover basic issues for anyone interested in canon law: its sources; the organization, structure, and governance of the Church; the qualifications for ordination, as well as its impediments; and issues of church membership, including reception of non-Orthodox and marriage. Throughout the Introduction, the canonical tradition is presented and thoroughly explained.

"Introduction to Orthodox Canon Law is clearly a labor of love, stamped by years of experience and devotion to the theological enterprise. Through his lucid and eloquent linguistic skills, Dr. Lewis Patsavos imparts an appreciation for the essential pastoral nature of the holy canons. The divine truths deposited in the Church are embedded in her liturgical and canonical tradition. They are meant to help both persons and communities realize the highest excellence. "

- Fr. Alkiviadis C. Calivas, Professor of Liturgics, Emeritus
