About this book

This new political history of the Orthodox Church in the Ottoman Empire explains why Orthodoxy became the subject of acute political competition between the Great Powers during the mid 19th century. It also explores how such rivalries led, paradoxically, both to secularizing reforms and to Europe's last great war of religion - the Crimean War.

About the authors

Jack Fairey has taught European, Ottoman, Greek, and Mediterranean history at the National University of Singapore and at Queens University and York University in Canada. His research work deals primarily with Orthodox Christendom and the early modern empires of the eastern Mediterranean.
