Orthodox Ecclesiology - Lesson 6: Ss. Gregory Palamas, Nicholas Cabasilas and Mark of Ephesus

Archpriest Peter Heers

We will narrow our examination at this point in order to properly focus and benefit from those theological and historical signposts which are more relevant and beneficial for us in our time.

To this end we have chosen to focus on the other two great “pillars of Orthodoxy,” besides St. Photios the Great (see Lesson 5), namely, St. Gregory Palamas and St. Mark of Ephesus, before we move on, next...

TRAITORS INSIDE THE CHURCH

~ Elder Athanasios Mytilinaios

...Then as I said, Apostle Peter asked them to be quiet. A very serious problem arises here, which has been troubling me for years now. Since you and I are inside the Church, and we are the Church, this is the problem: The secrecy of the issues of the Church by the faithful.

The Church was once a closed circle. A relic of this closed circle that has remained to this day is when...

THE TEMPTATION COMING UPON THE ENTIRE WORLD

Elder Athanasius Mitilinaios

TRANSCRIPT:

"Then we have a third and final stage of Ecumenism. We said that first is Orthodoxy, then Roman Catholicism, then Protestantism. These will associate themselves with Judaism and Mohamedanism, and all these five joined together, and we will move to the third stage, which is all of the so-called natural...

Τhe Sunday of the Holy Fathers and the Meaning of Heresy

The Orthodox Ethos Podcast

A pernicious and dangerous re-definition of heresy is spreading among theologians and hierarchs which blurs the boundaries of Orthodoxy and heresy and thus blocks the path of return and salvation for many. In this podcast Fr. Peter examines the teaching of the Holy Fathers on heresy, heretics, and the key differences, including, first of all, the therapeutic methodology in the Church, the fruit of which,...

Ποια είναι η μεγαλύτερη πνευματική πρόκληση που αντιμετωπίζει σήμερα η Εκκλησία;

~ π. Πέτρος Χιρς

Κάποιος ανέφερε ότι το μελλοντικό θεολογικό ζήτημα από εδώ και στο εξής θα είναι η ανθρωπολογία. Δεν το συμμερίζομαι. Πιστεύω ότι θα είναι η εκκλησιολογία. Η εκκλησιολογία είναι οπωσδήποτε το πρόβλημα που πρέπει να λυθεί, δηλαδή, η κακιά εκκλησιολογία που εισήχθη από τις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα με τον οικουμενισμό, αλλά και ο...

“A LION OF ORTHODOXY”: THEOLOGIAN, ASCETIC, ANTI-ECUMENIST; In memoriam, Protpresbyter George Metallinos

I was very blessed to come to know Fr. George in the early 2000s and work besides him drafting several...

On the Essential Identity of Ecumenism and Phyletism

​By Archpriest Peter Heers

As Fr. Seraphim Rose once wrote, the difference between Orthodoxy and heterodoxy is most apparent in that the Orthodox Church (in Her Saints) is able to discern the spirits. Moreover, discernment of the methods of the fallen spirits is a requirement in the formation of Christology and Ecclesiology. As the Evangelist John writes, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the...

On the Cessation of Commemoration of Bishops Preaching Heresy (A)

Protopresbyter Theodore Zisis, Professor Emeritus of Patrology, Theological School of the University of Thessaloniki

Fr. Theodore Zisis introduces audiences to the oft-misunderstood Canon 15 of the 1st-2nd Council (861) of Constantinople and the canonical practice of ceasing the commemoration of bishops who have fallen into heresies condemned either by councils or by the consensus of the Holy Fathers.

The historic statements of hierarchs in Greece (Ambrose of Eleftheropolis and Avgoustinos of Florina) who ceased commemoration of Patriarch Athenagoras in 1970 are read in full, as well.

This lecture was delivered at the beginning of 2017 at parish of St. Anthony the Great in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The relevant canons discussed in the lecture:

Canon 13. The All-evil One having...
