I found the Acts of the Synod of Jerusalem on Google books and decided to share it.

http://books.google.com/books?id=G1h5ijh3YcwC&printsec=frontcover&dq=synod+of+jerusalem&ei=jVfVSOXqLYyuyATmhKjMAw

Of particular interest is section I, where the Synod proves that Cyril Lukaris was never a Calvinist, by comparing extracts from his homilies with the contents of the confession.

Thanks! I admit that I didn't read the whole thing, but what I did read was interesting. I might have to try and find it in book form some day. There were some interesting lines in there as well, such as:

"he who is not adorned with the Church's name, cannot even be called a Christian, much less be a Christian" (p. 9)

Quite a bit further than Orthodox Christians would go today!

I'll bet I look like a goof.
