The Eastern Orthodox Church (viz. Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, etc.) is a Christian theology of the body that views itself as:

  • the historical continuation of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus Christ and the Twelve Apostles, having maintained unbroken the link between its clergy and the Apostles by means of Apostolic Succession.
  • the church which most effectively preserves the traditions of the early church.
  • the church which most closely adheres to the canons of the first seven ecumenical councils held between the 4th and the 8th centuries.

In these articles, terms such as “The Church”, “The Orthodox”, “The Byzantine Church”, and “The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church” all refer to a single entity, what is today commonly called the Eastern Orthodox Church – unless otherwise noted.

Noahide teachings have significant problems with Eastern Orthodoxy, but some scholars such as Rabbi Benamozegh have raised the possibility that Eastern Orthodoxy could be modified to be compliant with Noahide law.
