His Excellency, the Most Reverend Metropolitan '''Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia''' (b. 1934, also known by his lay name, '''Timothy Ware''') is a [[titular bishop|titular metropolitan]] of the [[Church of Constantinople|Ecumenical Patriarchate]] in Great Britain. From 1966-2001, he was Spalding Lecturer of Eastern Orthodox Studies at Oxford University, and has authored numerous books and articles pertaining to the [[Orthodox Christianity|Orthodox Christian faith]]. He has stated that he believes in theistic evolution.
Metropolitan Kallistos is perhaps best known as the author of the book ''The Orthodox Church'', published when he was a layman in 1963 and subsequently revised several times. More recently, he produced a companion volume, ''The Orthodox Way''.
However his most substantial publications have emerged from his translation work. Together with [[G. E.
