This is the first full-scale study in English of the life and work of the great Patriarch of Constantinople, St. Methodios the Confessor (843-847).

It also provides a thorough and scholarly discussion of the consequences of the restoration of the icons and of the criticism which the Studite monks raised against the Patriarch. More importantly, it discusses the ecclesiological issue that was connected with the iconoclastic dispute, involving such church personalities as Patriarchs Germanos I, Tarasios, Nikephoros I and Methodios, as well as Theodore the Studite.
