"Orthodox" literally means right teaching or right worship. It is derived from two Greek words: orthos (right) and doxa (teaching or worship). As the early Church fought false teachings and division and struggled to remain true to the faith, it naturally came to be known as Orthodox. This category describes the Orthodox Church, her beliefs, worship, practices, jurisdictions and parishes, organization, schools, seminaries, monasteries, and history. Sites appear in this category, and all subcategories, regardless of their status with the canonical Orthodox Church in communion with the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
