Distinct in their theology, spirituality and discipline
of Church life, 23 Eastern Catholic Churches are in communion with the Roman Catholic Church. The Second Vatican Council
urged the Eastern Catholic Churches to promote their unique share of the tradition. This series responds to that mandate
and features leading scholars in the field to offer their theological perspectives drawn from the wisdom of the Christian
East. In view of broadening our understanding of the Catholic intellectual tradition, this series draws attention to
the vantage points of Christians who worship, think, and pray in continuity with the first 1000 years of the undivided Church.
