Just curious. Do any EOs believe Mary was a sinner?

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Try a search of past threads. Plenty of discussion.

I changed it to Mary and Sinner and found a great deal more than I previously had.

Click on the "Theotokos" tag below.  This has been discussed so many times, it's not even funny.

AFAIK, St. John Chrysostom seemed to think that the Theotokos might have been a little bit prideful.

Wow, really? What'd he say?
Come, let us wonder at the virgin most pure, wondrous in herself, unique in creation, she gave birth, yet knew no man; her pure soul with wonder was filled, daily her mind gave praise in joy at the twofold wonder: her virginity preserved, her child most dear. Blessed is He who shone forth from her!

Sorry, I don't recall the exact text.  You should look into it if you are interested.

She is called "Spotless One," in the Small Paraklisis to the Theotokos Service.
