Guide for a Church under Islām: The Sixty-Six Canonical Questions Attributed to Theodōros Balsamōn; A Translation of the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s Twelfth-Century Guidance to the Patriarchate of Alexandria

   
Patrick Demetrios Viscuso
Foreword by Sidney H. Griffith

“The work under examination contains questions submitted by a church under Islāmic rule and corresponding guidance framed by the Ecumenical Patriarchate through one of its most learned canonical experts. The guidance covers a wide range of issues ranging from marriage to the administration of ecclesiastical finances. What do these questions reveal about the ordering of Church life? Does the historical context restrict the answers to the age in which they were created, or is there a significant meaning that may still be derived? Are there understandings that may assist the Church in its relationship with Islām? The present work is an invitation to further study and exploration.”
