The Council of Florence was an attempt to unite the Orthodox Church with the Church of Rome in the last years of the Byzantine Empire. Its history is of great importance for all who seek to understand issues confronting the Orthodox Church today. Ostroumoff’s history of the Council of Florence was published in 1847 and translated into English shortly thereafter. This is a reprint of that rare English edition, to which has been added Epistles of Metropolitan Philaret.
