Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., August IO, 1974 Orthodox Leader Sees Church-Culture Struggle Rare 12th Century Book -UPI T*l»oho*o Caroline Blunt, curator of the rare book section of the Michigan State university library, examines a recent gift to the university, called an antiphonary and dating back to the 12th Century. An antiphonary is a book used in Italian churches and is quite large, because it had to be placed where many people could read it. The wood bound book has pages of parchment made from sheepskins and features hand printing in Latin. My George Cornell AP Mf*,mn Writer The nation’s foremost Eastern Orthodox leader says that Christianity, once com fort ably I in harmony with American culture, now faces a struggle against it. "There's been a breach." says Archbishop lakovos, the tall, courtly head of the Greek Orthodox Church in the Americas. He says the civic atmosphere, which in the past was conducive to faith, has become fouled and now challenges religious life. "The church can no longer play second fiddle to the state on moral issues,” he said in an interview at Greek Orthodoxy’s stately headquarters on Manhattan’s East 79th street. "Religion must be the one to enlighten people, to illuminate life, to influence the nation. Instead of following, it must provide guidance. That responsibility has been placed on us and we must come up to it.” Dream Faded Outlines History Church Briefs Of Women Priests Fami|y VBS at Sali'ef , Baptist Begins Monday By Alden Whitman New York Times Service NEW YORK - Women, in most Judeo-Christian religions, may be leaders of their people, of opinion that excluded women as priests.

D. with western Roman Catholicism, from which Protestants later separated. There are about 250 million Orthodox believers, mostly in the eastern part of the world. They number about fi million in this country in a dozen branches based on national origins, the largest of which is the 2-million-member Greek Orthodox Church. Ethnic Distinctions Archbishop lakovos, 62, not only heads the Greek Church but also is chairman of a standing all-Orthodox conference to maintain liaison among the different branches. He also holds positions in national and world ecumenical bodies. "Our people have matured, come of age, and can think freely in church affairs not just as an institution, but as a spiritual-moral force,” he said.
