Of these certain proportion comes solely for the sunshine and the beachesnbut a majority, I think, are prepared, or in some cases eager, for cultural distraction. Hitherto this has been largely provided by the ruins of classical antiquity, temples and theatres, shaft graves and beehive tombs, but some among them there may be who feel a certain curiosity about the inumerable Byzantine churches which every word.the landscape; or, excited by such celebrated masterpieces as Daphne and Hosious Lukas, which are now days included in most of the package tours, would wish to know more of the civilization which produced them...." - Foreword from Sailing To Byzantium: An Architectural Companion

    The Greek East and the Latin West - A Study in the Christian Tradition by Philip Sherrard

    In english. Soft cover, 21 cm, 222 pp. The division of Christendom into the Greek East and the Latin West has its origins far back in history but its consequences still affect Europe, and thus western civilization. Philip Sherrard's study seeks to indicate both the fundamental character and some of the consequences of this division. He points especially to the underlying metaphysical bases of Greek Christian thought, and contrasts them with those of the Latin West; he argues persuasively that the philosophical and even theological differences, remote as they might seem from practical affairs, are symptoms of a deep divergence of outlook that has profoundly affected the history of ideas and hence the whole course of European history. He exemplifies this by comparing the relationships between the spiritual and temporal powers during the Byzantine period with those assumed by the medieval Papacy, by an analysis of the "Platonic reaction" of such figures as Gemistos Plethon, and by an exposition of the intellectual background of the Renaissance, the Reformation and, finally, of the modern western world. His concluding chapters discuss the impact of modern western ideas ïn Greek life and letters during the last few centuries. With an unusual knowledge of aspects of the thought of the Greek Church Fathers often neglected in the West, and a deep sympathy with their outlook in these matters, Philip Sherrard presents a point of view that may be unfamiliar, but should be of great concern, both to theologians and philosophers, and to historians and students of European civilization and indeed of world affairs in general.
