Can anyone recommend any books on the history/development of the rite of confession?  I've had a great deal of difficulty finding even the name of a single book on the subject.

Good luck: I have been looking for something like that forever.  And the tradition developed so differently in Greece than in for example Romanian, Ukraine (no the), Russia, Belarus.  I think it is Kitsenko who recently published a article about the history confession in Russian that I find interesting.  Let me know if you are interested & I will look for the URL.

Do you require an exclusively Orthodox treatment, or something more broad?
I would greatly appreciate the name of a book on either.  The closest I've been able to find so far is a book on confession in 16th century Germany....which is a tad too specific for me to spend $72 on, right now.

I actually would be interested in that, if it isn't too much trouble.
