A Reference to “Col. Lodvel” – An English Writer on the Subject of the “Greek Church”

“Another English writer on the subject of the Greek Church who preceded Dr. King [1772] is Col. Lodvel [an alternative spelling of the Ludwell name that arises from transliterating the name back into English from Russian]. The work attributed to him is one of the most important in the ample Oriental ecclesiastical library.”

This quote is from an 1892 Scottish Review article on Orthodox texts by the Rev. Stephen Hatherly. More information on Rev. Hatherly’s interesting mission in New York City can be found in this article by Matthew Namee on the website of the Society for Orthodox Christian History in the Americas.
