Some fundamental transformations in these Churches and theirconnections with the outside world can be better understood when the inner-workings of the Empire are also taken into account. Likewise, due attention tothe inner dynamics of the Christian communities in its territories can make possible a more realistic perception of the Ottoman Empire.
