    We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all time, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created; consubstantial with the Father, through whom all things came into being: Who for us all and because our salvation came.   The two great rival churches in Orthodoxy are the Greeks and the Russians. This goes back many centuries. In Orthodox ecclesiology, the Patriarch of Byzantium has historically been considered the.

    The messages in the book were given and published in at Chungking. They are exceedingly unveiling and illuminating. Besides many other points, they cover the two main matters: returning to the orthodoxy of the church and taking the ground of locality, which is the unique ground of genuine unity.   I want to express my grave concern and my great fear that the “Holy and Great Synod” of the Orthodox Church that has been in preparation over the past 50 years (called by the Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras and supported by his successors, especially the current Patriarch Bartholomew) will bring great harm to the faithful Orthodox people. I will explain my reasons why it would be better.

As we noted previously, the Œcumenical Synods are often thought of as the highest authority in the Orthodox. The Œcumenical Synods of the Orthodox Church: A Concise History Second Edition by Protopresbyter James Thornton “[ T]he Œcumenical Synods[ ]occupy a place of paramount importance in the Orthodox Church.

A synod (/ ˈ s ɪ n ə d /) is a council of a church, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or word synod comes from the Greek: σύνοδος meaning "assembly" or "meeting" and is analogous with the Latin word concilium meaning "council". Originally, synods were meetings of bishops, and the word is still used in that sense in Catholicism, Oriental.

An ecumenical council (or oecumenical council; also general council) is a conference of ecclesiastical dignitaries and theological experts convened to discuss and settle matters of Church doctrine and practice in which those entitled to vote are convoked from the whole world (oikoumene) and which secures the approbation of the whole Church.

The word "ecumenical" derives from the Late Latin. The council approved what the current form of the Nicene Creed as used in most Oriental Orthodox churches is.

The Eastern Orthodox Church uses the council's text but with the verbs expressing belief in the singular: Πιστεύω (I believe) instead of Πιστεύομεν (We believe).

The Latin Rite of the Catholic Church also uses the singular and, except in Greek, adds two phrases, Deum. The Orthodox Church is significantly more developed and complete in its understanding of this particular theological concept, than is found anywhere in the West.

The book, although primarily aimed at lay readers, is nonetheless sufficiently academic to be able to make a very credible contribution to any theology degree by: Early synods. The principle of summoning a synod or council of ecclesiastical persons to discuss some grave question affecting the Church goes back to the very beginning of the Church's history.

Since the day when the Apostles met at Jerusalem to settle whether Gentile converts were to keep the Old Law (Acts –29), it had been the custom to call together such gatherings as occasion required.

The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church (Russian: Священный синод Русской православной церкви, tr. Svyashchennyy sinod Russkoy pravoslavnoy tserkvi) serves by Church statute as the supreme administrative governing body of the Russian Orthodox Church in. This primacy, expressed in canonical literature as presbeia ("prerogatives", literally: "seniorities"), grants to the Ecumenical Patriarch the right to preside at pan-Orthodox synods.

Additionally, the canonical literature of the Orthodox Church grants to the Ecumenical Patriarch the right to hear appeals in cases of dispute between ral: St. George's Cathedral, Istanbul, Turkey. In the wake of these points it is obvious how Orthodox the Oriental “Orthodox” are and how much optimism there should be for the success of their union with the Orthodox Church, insofar as we continue to believe that the Saint of Damascus, the boast of the Church of Antioch, is the mouth of the Church, the voice of the Fathers and the Synods.

The Holy Synod of Bishops is the supreme canonical authority in the Church. It includes, as voting members, all the diocesan bishops of the Church. The Metropolitan is the ex officio Chairman of the Synod.

In case of his absence, a Chairman is elected by the diocesan bishops present. This section contains a list of the entire episcopate of the.

At the same time he complains (Epist. 3) of a Synod which the Schismatics had held (at Aquileia) for the rejection of the fifth Council, whilst the old Church rule required that, in case of doubts arising with respect to an Œcumenical Council their solution was to be sought of the Roman see, and not by a provincial Synod.
