A Study of the Ecclesiology of Resistance
The Writings of Metropolitans Cyprian of Oropos and Fili, Chrysostomos of Florina, and Cyril of Kazan
by Patrick G. Barker [Hieromonk Patapios]
The idea of resistance is crucial to the ecclesiology espoused by the moderate Old Calendarists under Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili. In addition to the classic position paper on ecumenism by Metropolitan Cyprian, there are a reply to a vitriolic attack on the Old Calendarists by a New Calendarist clergyman, an article containing valuable quotations from the writings of Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Florina, vivid descriptions of the horrendous violence against the Old Calendarist Faithful, and five epistles by the New Martyr of the Communist Yoke, Saint Cyril of Kazan.
