Exiles from Eden is the sequel to Abba Seraphim’s Flesh of Our Brethren which he first published in 2006. This is a later history of the Western episcopal successions originating from the... More > Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and deals specifically with the successions and jurisdictions originating from the 1866 mission of Mar Julius (Ferrette), Bishop of Iona, and the 1892 mission of Mar Timotheos (Vilatte). Using the anonymous 1922 article “A Chapter of Secret History” which was originally published in The Church Times, as a framework for the period 1867-1922, he attempts to verify and amplify the events it recounts in tracing the history of the Ferrette Succession. The later Vilatte Succession was more extensive in its outreach, not only in the United States, but also in ministering to Poles, Black Americans and Swedes, as well as establishing missions in Britain, France, Italy and the African Continent.< Less

This chapter in the history of nineteenth century Christendom has been sadly neglected by writers and Church historians. During the middle of the 19th century Stephen Hatherly, an English church... More > musician and Dr. Joseph Overbeck, a Prussian Catholic scholar priest who had settled in England, both converted to Orthodoxy. Tragically, an early clash of personalities caused them to be life-long enemies. Hatherly believed the Byzantine Liturgy the very essence of Orthodoxy and told the Greek community in Manchester, “I glory in nothing more than that I stand before you as a Greek priest.” Dr. Overbeck's scheme for a Western-rite Orthodoxy was repugnant to Hatherly and he wrote to his rival that he would not stand by and see him “blend any figment of your old popery or any old Protestantism with our Orthodox ritual.”< Less
