This is the first attempt to provide comprehensive, annotated lists of the Ecumenical Patriarchs and the Metropolitans and Archbishops under the jurisdication of Constantinople for an English-language audience. Kiminas meticulously delineates the history of each archdiocese, and provides detailed succession catalogs in both English and Greek of the hierarchs of each see, as well as indicating their years of birth and death (when known), and their previous and later ecclesiastical posts. Every serious student of the history of Eastern Orthodoxy will want a copy of this carefully annotated work.
"A stunning achievement of scholarship!"-Michael Burgess, author of The Eastern Orthodox Churches.
