Orthodox Tradition and Modernism

by Constantine Cavarnos
Translated by Patrick G. Barker [Hieromonk Patapios]

40 pp.

An excellent presentation of what Orthodox Tradition is and why it cannot and should not be “modernized.” Dr. Cavarnos portrays the devastating effects of innovationism in such areas as iconography, sacred music, clerical dress, and ecumenism.
