Yes, in Orthodox (big-O Orthodox, not little-o) Christianity she is venerated as well; she is known as Theotokos or The Mother of God. There is a heavy emphasis on her role in the redemption of mankind because she said "yes" to bearing Christ. It is true that she is less of a figurehead in Protestantism than in either Orthodoxy or Roman Catholicism. I like that she plays such a major role in O and in RC.
