Pew Study on Orthodox Christianity in the 21st Century

The Pew Forum has released a new study on Orthodox Christianity in the 21st Century. The study features insights on the practices and views of Orthodox people in the countries of the former Soviet Union and elsewhere. Readers interested in Ethiopian Orthodoxy will have plenty to discuss here. The researchers covered both Eastern and Oriental Orthodoxy; the study says little about the Syrian and Coptic Churches, and Orthodoxy in India.
