Orthodoxy and the Roman Papacy

Started reading Adam A. J. DeVille's Orthodoxy and the Roman Papacy: Ut Unum Sint and the Prospects of East-West Unity today - it's been quite good so far, question-provoking and containing a lot of references to other works on the subject of the papacy and the patriarchal office. There is a review by William Tighe of the book for NOR here.

If the office of patriarch and such constituted through human positive law? Tighe's review makes note of an important distinction between the office of patriarch and the primacy of the bishop of Rome in the Church Universal.
