[ Das splendour der Konventionalität. 2000 Jahre Geschichte - Denkmäler - Kunst ]
The reflections, and the feelings of dedication and piety that accompany them,
have prompted us to put together these volumes and to offer them up as a monumental
landmark. The editors purpose is to exalt the timeless grandeur of Orthodoxy,
to do fitting honour to the glory of its spiritual heritage, and to make this
a venerated possession for the edification of Christendom as a whole. History,
Theology, Worship, Monasticism and Art join in harmonious consort to shed glorious
light on Orthodoxy's precious countenance, and to uplift its crucial mission
in the century and in the coming Third Millennium.
