A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch in 2016.



The History of Orthodox Christianity (Full 3-part Series) - [DVD]

CODE: GTL-9781584380597

Shipping Now
Our series views the foundation and growth of the Orthodox Church through the historic milestones and the geographic locations connected to the specific eras of its life, examining the formation of major aspects of the Church’s Holy Tradition. Filmed on location, our journey begins with the founding of the Church, and continues with the spread of Christianity to the “nations” by the Apostles. This is the period of the Gospel, and the institution of the Sacraments. This first, formative, period culminates with the move of the Roman empire to the East, to Constantinople. We follow the stabilization of the Church, after the resolution of major issues in sacramental life, dogma and administration. This is the period of the Nicene Creed, the Patristic Scriptures, the Divine Liturgy and the Icons. The Church realized its apostolic mission, with the spread of the Gospel to the Slavic people in Europe. During this same period, however, we witness the official division of East and West, a conclusion to the gradual rift in matters of faith, dogma, church custom, politics and culture. The fall of Constantinople in 1453 marks an era when the Church becomes the only institution perceived by the Greeks as the preserver of their national identity during 400 years of Turkish rule. By the end of the 19th century, hundreds of thousands of Orthodox immigrants spread throughout the world, to the “new” countries, shifting the center of influence within the Orthodox Churches to the New World. Although still associated with the churches in the countries they left behind, they provide the Orthodox Church with a new, youthful and dynamic perspective. This is the time when our Church becomes involved in the human rights struggle, other major social and philanthropic concerns, and the ecumenical movement, while at the same time helping the Orthodox immigrants become an integral part of mainstream societies. .
