The links provided here are for the purpose of having online material where you can learn what each faith has to say about itself. While these links are not about "religious anthropology" itself, having a knowledge of what each faith believes, and its internal dynamics, can be an important tool in many studies of the anthropology of religion. The websites below all identify themselves as Eastern Orthodox.  Whether or not they are in communion with each other is a part of their "internal dynamics" and lends itself to the study of the anthropology of Eastern Orthodoxy.

In the review annotations, I will let the site speak for itself as much as possible.

Eastern Orthodox Church __ "The Eastern Orthodox Church emerged as a result of disagreements between Greek speaking eastern churches and Latin speaking western churches over doctrine and ecclesiastical authority. Tensions grew in the eleventh century over the increasing claims of the Roman church to universal authority. The refusal of the patriarch of Constantinople, Michael Cerularius, to allow Rome any authority over the eastern church led to mutual recriminations and in 1054 to mutual excommunication." - From St. Martin's College - http://philtar.ucsm.ac.uk/encyclopedia/christ/east/eastorth.html
