Overview

An Examination of Church-State Relations in the Byzantine and Russian Empires with an Emphasis on Ideology and Models of Interaction by Nikolas K. Gvosdev

Gvosdev (church-state studies, Baylor U.) considers the general Eastern Christian (both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian) perspective on church-state relations as expressed in its history and theology. Coverage extends from the legacy of early Christianity through the edicts of Emperor Constantine, theocratic republicanism in medieval Russia, attitudes of the Russian Church towards the Soviet regime, and church-state relations in Romania from 1947 to 1958.
