This book is based on the author’s doctoral dissertation. It opens with a foreword by the Jesuit theologian Germano Marani, associate professor at the Gregoriana (Rome, Italy). The work is divided into four major chapters, and it contains an introduction, a conclusion, a bibliography and a useful index of authors. Keramidas chooses for his thesis a structure that is essentially diachronic: Greek contemporary theology confronts the West (chapter 1), The Accession of Greece to the European Community in the understanding of the Church of Greece (chapter 2), Towards a European contextualisation of Orthodoxy of Greece (chapter 3), The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in the context of contemporary Europe (chapter 4).
