Hello everyone,

Has any synod/council in the Orthodox Church defined anything infallibly since the Great Schism on par with the Immaculate Conception, or Papal Infallibility?

I had a quick look at these, and it raised a few other questions about some of these councils, but I'm not sure if I should start another thread or not? Would the Moderators mind if I derail or move my thread on to a slightly different subject (i.e. questioning a few of the rulings of these councils and asking for explanations?)

No.  That's exactly the major difference with Orthodoxy, only an Ecumenical Synod can define doctrine.  The last Ecumenical Synod met in 787.  Even the Great and Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church, which has been in a planning phase since for the past -80- years, is not considering any doctrinal matters.
