The mechanism of catastrophe : the Turkish pogrom of September 6-7, 1955, and the destruction of the Greek community of Istanbul by Speros Vryonis( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 1,979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the night of September 6-7, 1955, the Greek community of Istanbul was violently struck throughout the expanse of Turkey's most important metropolis. Within hours, businesses, homes, and even the churches of the Greeks were in ruins, with the British press calculating the damage at $100 million. It was the beginning of the end for the ethnic descendants of the city's founders, who had settled this eastern tip of Europe two and a half millennia earlier. This vicious and unprovoked attack quickly became entangled in the Cold War politics of the time, and the truth of it was just as quickly suppressed. Now, on the fiftieth anniversary of the mass destruction, Speros Vryonis has painstakingly reconstructed the events of that night in his magisterial work, The Mechanism of Catastrophe: The Turkish Pogrom of September 6-7, 1955, and the Destruction of the Greek Community of Istanbul. . . ."--Jacket

Aspects of the mind of Byzantium : political theory, theology, and ecclesiastical relations with the See of Rome by Milton V Anastos( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of studies by the late Milton Anastos contains his major articles published after his previous collection appeared, along with the first publication of a portion of The Mind of Byzantium, Anastos's projected multi-volume survey of Byzantine intellectual history. These essays deal with the theoretical foundations of Byzantine imperial autocracy, with the formulation of Byzantine theology, and with the often contentious relations between the Churches of Constantinople and Rome. The Byzantine concept of imperial absolutism is shown to have been derived from ancient Greek philosophy and to have persisted unchanged throughout Byzantine history. Other articles focus on the theology of Basil of Caesarea, which is found to be inconsistent with orthodox doctrine in important respects. Last, the relations between the Roman Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church in the Byzantine period are surveyed, with emphasis on the theological and ecclesiological controversies that divided them."--Jacket
