History of the Filioque Controversey
« on: September 12, 2004, 11:10:20 PM »
Does anyone know any good links, or can anyone provide me a good historical account of the Filioque controversey. Im mainly concerned with the Orthodox Chruch's historical response, rather than the contemporary one. I would need prominent figures involved in rejecting it at the time, and any quote etc. showing directly their reasons for rejecting it. I not after a biblical or patristic critisicsm of the Filioque - my concern is purely historical. Thanks.

Hmmmm this is a good one:

Filioque page T.R Valentine

Fr. John Romanides on the filioque,.. Excellent historical part!

Roman Catholic essays theological and historical on the filioque

Also the first chapters of the recently published English translation of "The Comforter" by Fr. Sergius Bulgakov is a good introduction to the issue.


If you have not yet received the charism of prayer or of psalmody, then ask perseveringly, and you will receive!
