Again, re-read the article. You are expounding the Frankish historical revision (and know full well what we think of Lyons).
I think we're all aware of what the Orthodox think of the Council of Lyons. Be that as it may, the Catholic Church (the Church I place my full loyalty and faith in as THE Church) declares Lyons to be a valid Ecumenical Council.
Can you please tell me why the Orthodox church does not consider the Council of Lyons Ecumenical? Were representatives of the historical patriachs not present and would that make it not ecumenical? (eg. Egypt, Antioch?)
