Does anyone know of any writings of 17th c. patriarch Cyril Lukaris in English? I cannot seem to find any on the web & have asked around & there are probably none. Still, it is worth taking another chance by inquiring here.

To anyone unfamiliar with Cyril Lukaris see: http://orthodoxwiki.org/Cyril_Lucaris

He never was a Protestant, see: http://orthodoxinfo.com/inquirers/ca4_loukaris.aspx


He is now a saint, (probably centuries overdue) see:  http://www.johnsanidopoulos.com/2011/06/hieromartyr-cyril-lukaris-celebrated-by.html

If anyone has any info, I would be deeply thankful. I cannot probably respond to much on the thread but will try if anything may even come up. Thanks in advance..

As far as I know, most things pertaining to St. Cyril Lukaris of truth and worth are in Greek.

The writings of Patriarch CYRIL have not been translated, as far as I know.

If you're interested for some more background on him, from a more scholarly book, I recommend the late Sir Steven Runcimann's book, The Great Church in Captivity.  There's a whole chapter on Patriarch CYRIL with some good footnotes on further reading.
