The chapters of this book are made up of texts that I have written on various occasions, at different times. Considering that they could be collected in a single volume, we ordered them, added a few other writings, and thus drew up the book before us. The title Old and New Rome is a point of reference for each chapter. The first chapters refer to the Ancient Rome of the Roman Empire, the following to the New Capital, the New Rome - Constantinople, and the others capture the connections between them, the conflicts, respectively the interruption of their communion.

The chapters of this book are made up of texts that I have written on various occasions, at different times. Considering that they could be collected in a single volume, we ordered them, added a few other writings, and thus drew up the book before us. The title Old and New Rome is a point of reference for each chapter. The first chapters refer to the Ancient Rome of the Roman Empire, the following to the New Capital, the New Rome - Constantinople, and the others capture the connections between them, the conflicts, respectively the interruption of their communion. Two cities with a great Tradition and culture, with a history of conquests and struggles for liberation, with elected Servant Fathers of the Church and, at the same time, with wanderings of heresies, with movements of opposition and dialogue. We are not talking about the First and Second Rome, in the sense of a series that could continue with a Third and a Fourth, but about a single Rome, the Old and the New. Beginning in the 7th century, Old Rome will, of course, begin to tread a different path from the common Tradition and culture, the ishiya and theology of the first centuries, while the New Rome continued, for centuries, to keep the breath of the same Tradition. . In saying this we are considering the theological truth and the personal Christian life. However, secularism and the perversion of the Orthodox faith remain a temptation that will always lurk in the Church. We need a life inspired by hesychasm and the whole hesychastic (niptic) tradition, the true premise of orthodox theology.

Ierotheos, Metropolitan of Nafpaktos
