|"The Faith of the Church is a summary of what the Prophets predicted, what the Lord fulfilled, what the Apostles preached,
what the Martyrs witnessed, what the Saints lived, and what the Fathers preserved. That is the Christian Faith."
-St. Athanasius the Great
Orthodoxy stands outside the circle of ideas in which western Christians
have moved for the past eight centuries; it has undergone no scholastic revolution,
no Reformation and Counter-Reformation, but still lives in that older Tradition
of the Fathers which so many in the west now desire to recover.
-Met. Kallistos Ware, from the book The Orthodox Church
