Anthropologies of Orthodox Christianity

We contend that there needs to be new trajectory in the study of Orthodoxy Christianity; one that takes seriously the theological aspects of Orthodoxy within anthropological inquiry. The dynamic lived experiences in and of Orthodoxy, both institutional and vernacular, can only be understood through interdisciplinary, holistic engagement. This volume, then, is an attempt to think through the ontological gap in both fields as Orthodox Christianity continues to rise in social, cultural, and geopolitical interest.
