Receiving the non-Orthodox: A historical study of Greek Orthodox canon law

Heith-Stade, David LU (2010) In Studia Canonica 44(2). p.399-426
Abstract
This article analyzes the development of the practice for receiving non-Orthodox in Greek Orthodox canon law. The main argument is that the development of this canonical institution was influenced by a pneumatological realist ecclesiology. This historical study of the development of a canonical institution will shed light on how Greek Orthodox canon law has functioned in practice.
