By editors: Andrew Louth, Augustine Casiday

The Byzantine Empire - the Christianized Roman Empire - very quickly outlined itself when it comes to right theological trust, 'orthodoxy'. The phrases of this trust have been hammered out, for the main half, by way of bishops, yet doctrinal judgements have been made in councils referred to as through the Emperors, lots of whom concerned themselves at once within the definition of 'orthodoxy'. Iconoclasm was once an instance of such imperial involvement, as was once the ultimate overthrow of iconoclasm. That controversy ensured that questions of Christian paintings have been additionally visible via Byzantines as implicated within the query of orthodoxy. The papers collected during this quantity derive from these offered on the thirty sixth Spring Symposium of Byzantine stories, Durham, March 2002. They speak about how orthodoxy used to be outlined, and different pursuits that it represented; how orthodoxy used to be expressed in artwork and the track of the liturgy; and the way orthodoxy contributed to shaping the Byzantine Empire's feel of its personal identification, an id outlined opposed to the 'other' - Jews, heretics and, specially from the flip of the 1st millennium, the Latin West. those concerns bring up wider questions about the best way societies and teams use world-views and problems with trust to specific and articulate id. At a time while, with the expansion of the ecu Union, questions of id inside Europe are once more changing into urgent, there's a lot in those essays of topical relevance.

6 Such statements appear to rule out the possibility that the Life of Theodosius could contain the equivocation of one of the central terms of the Chalcedonian belief system. However, it would be wrong simply to assume that the text can only be read on one level. Of course, it is true that it presents itself as a biography of a saint and that as a consequence it offers a more or less continuous narrative containing many historical facts that can often be checked through a comparison with other sources.
