The Great Powers and Orthodox Christendom

Full Product Description

During the mid-19th century, the Orthodox Christians of the Middle East found themselves at the centre of a bitter struggle for control between five empires - Russia, Britain, France, Austria, and the Ottoman government itself. This book traces the history of the international crisis over Orthodox Christendom from its origins in the 1820s-1830s to its partial resolution in the 1860s. It explains how and why the temporal powers exercised by the Orthodox Church led to an escalating series of diplomatic confrontations that reached their acme in the 1850s with the outbreak of the Crimean War and a concerted campaign by the Great Powers to secularize and laicize the non-Muslim communities of the Ottoman Empire.

The Great Powers and Orthodox Christendom by Jack Fairey was published by Palgrave Macmillan in September 2015. The ISBN for The Great Powers and Orthodox Christendom is 9781137508454.
