Here's where I browse. Right now, it's mainly Church stuff. But more to come.


General Reference

  • Holy Trinity Orthodox School—perhaps the largest collection of Orthodox texts and books in English in one place on the web. This is serious stuff! Whole books by authors like Florovsky, Pomazansky, Andreev, Bulgakov etc. References like These Truths We Hold and Bishop Kallistos' The Orthodox Church. Provides both browsable HTML and downloadable DOC files.
  • Bases of the Social Concept of the Russian Orthodox Church—the definitive statement of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church on a host of matters, including Church/State relations, contemporary social issues, ecological concerns, etc. Not only the what, but also the why. A tremendous resource.
