(p.228) Chapter 11 Church and Patriarchate and the Limits of Americanization
The Greek Orthodox Church in America

Alexander Kitroeff

Cornell University Press

This chapter focuses on the state of Greek Orthodoxy in America at the end of the twentieth century. It assesses whether the Church under Archbishop Iakovos overreached in its efforts to Americanize, which alienated the Ecumenical Patriarchate. It analyzes the patriarchate's intervention, which illustrated the administrative limits the Greek Orthodox Church in America faces in its efforts to assimilate. The chapter describes the patriarchate's ability to invoke the transnational character of Orthodoxy in the new era of globalization. It explores the end of the evolution of Greek Orthodoxy into some form of American Orthodoxy through its fusion with the other Eastern Orthodox Churches.

Keywords:   Greek Orthodoxy, Archbishop Iakovos, Americanize, Ecumenical Patriarchate, Greek Orthodox Church, globalization, American Orthodoxy
