Eastern Orthodoxy has an extensive oral tradition that predates the actual texts of the New Testament, hence, it does not consider itself to be "bibliocentric"; which is the case with most forms of Protestantism.
This stems from the historical identification of Orthodoxy with the Greek-speaking Byzantine Empire in the east, as opposed to the Latin-speaking Roman Catholic Church in the west.
Eastern Rite Churches include the Armenian Catholic Church, the Chaldean Catholic Church, Eparchy of Krizevci, Italo-Albanian Catholic Church, the Maronite Church, the Romanian Greek-Catholic Uniate Church, the Ruthenian Catholic Church, the Syrian Catholic Church, the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Union of Brest.
