RUSSIA, RITUAL, AND REFORM: THE LITURGICAL REFORMS OF NIKON IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY
The seventeenth century saw a period of intense conflict within the Russian Orthodox Church, as under the auspices of Patriarch Nikon liturgical practices were corrected to be brought into line with what was promoted as being those of the contemporary Greek church. In this seminal work the traditional interpretation of these events is challenged. More importantly, this critical studies challenges our own presuppositions about both the nature and extent of change within the Orthodox liturgical tradition.
