Review of Laurent Cleenewerck. His Broken Body: Understanding and Healing the Schism between the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches.

Trostyanskiy, Sergey

Can Eucharistic ecclesiology introduced by twentieth century Russian exiles be traced to Patristic sources and considered a framework capable of resolving interfaith issues? Does Eucharistic ecclesiology address the problem of the communion between churches and the relations of primacy and supremacy? Can it offer a workable solution to the unification of the divided “body of Christ”? While Laurent Cleenewerck boldly attempts to answer these questions, his interpretations are not without their shortcomings.
