Excerpt from Eighteen Centuries of the Orthodox Greek ChurchDr. Neale might have added, that to write a history of the down-trodden Greek Church is also, in one sense, an unwelcome task; for it necessitates controversy; to me religious controversy is distasteful; and, as the lengthen ing shadows of the evening of life warn me that this may be the last which I shall write, I should have preferred a work of a different character. The conflicts for supremacy between Constantinople and Rome, and the arrogance and injustice of the latter were, in only a less degree than the Saracens and Ottomans, the cause of the fall of the Greek Church. The two Sees were placed by the great (ecumenical Councils on an equality; it is, therefore, necessary to point out the process and the causes, through which the downfall of the one and the victory of the otherwere effected. If it is shown that I have overstated my case; or if, in order to prove it, I have gone out of my way to introduce unnecessary or irrelevant matter, I shall be willing to acknowledge my error. I can only say that I have endeavoured not to do so.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
