Abstract

The historical and religious roots, transformations and current manifestations of attitudes to peace and peacebuilding in Eastern Orthodox cultures have attracted less thorough investigation and attention than their Western Christian counterparts to which they offer a number of parallels and differences. The present chapter examines the historical and theological background of these attitudes and their principal sources to chart the principal trajectories of their development into the medieval and modern era. Their significance to the current debates on and approaches to the topical problematic of peace and warfare needs a cautious reassessment, as Orthodox churches and networks have started addressing in earnest the most pressing questions arising from contemporary global and regional models of peacemaking and peacebuilding.
