Abstract
In her study of the Orthodox Church in the Byzantine Empire, Joan Hussey begins with a caveat: "In the present state of our knowledge a book on the Byzantine Church must necessarily be in the nature of an interim report since much pioneer work remains to be done." The same must be said about the attempt to present the "teachings" of modern Orthodoxy concerning law, society, and politics.
