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


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.

"And since when have Christians become afraid of rain?"
