Henry Chadwick is Emeritus Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge.
`Review from previous edition Henry Chadwick is without a doubt the most learned ecclesiastical scholar still, mercifully alive ... Chadwick refuses the offer of easy neat solutions to the problem of the rift ... Instead he insists on exploring with a wealth of illustrative detail the account of the gradual widening of the gulf between East and West ... marvellous breadth and fair mindedness ... without the rift we should not have this learned and elegant envoi.' Theology `As usual [Chadwick's] writing is magisterial, founded on well-grounded original sources and first-class studies, full of shrewd and sympathetic judgments, retaining patience and charity in the face of some unruly participants in his story.' The Expository Times `... this is clearly an indispensable book.' Church Times `Chadwick is always fair and often generous, helping us to see the seriousness, integrity and achievements of figures caught up in the crossfire of misunderstandings that constituted so much of the theological debate of the early Middle Ages.' Church Times `... one of the fascinating questions raised by this work is when exactly the intellectual balance of power changed between East and West.' Church Times `As always, Dr Chadwick is an entirely reliable guide to a mass of historical material, which in this instance spans nearly 15 centuries.' Church Times
