The II tome of the volume on Orthodox Church conciliarity includes a critical edition of the councils of the Russian Church. This selection of great councils held between 1551 and 200 highlights a very important aspect of the history of Orthodox councils and that is how the Patriarchate of Moscow has interpreted the ancient Byzantine and Post-Byzantine tradition with a combination of rigour and creativity.
