How does the EOC's view of the Nestorian church compare with Coptic? Catholic?
The reason I ask is because I have read that the EOC claims 4 of the original 5 patriarchates (antioch, constantinople, alexandria and jerusalem). It seems you replaced the coptic and syrian patriarchs, but refuse to replace the Roman. Its as if you see the Catholic Church as being more valid than the Coptic. Or as if you group, Coptic, Nestorian and Arian together.


Also, I was reading the history of chalcedon and it says that the church excomunicated Dioscorus. It didnt say that he excommunicated all of the Coptic bishops. How then is the Coptic church separated from the EOC? Shouldnt they still be united. Do the anathemas apply to successive genereations?

I will especially appreciate any answer from a clergyman.

There is no EO Patriarch of Rome for the same reason there is no OO Patriarch of Constantinople (or Rome).

The schism between EO and OO was not something that happened the day after Chalcedon was finished. Some Egyptian bishops accepted Chalcedon, some did not and communion did not immediately cease between the varying sides. At various times in the immediate decades afterwards there was sometimes one Patriarch of Alexandria (who might be Chalcedonian or might be non-Chalcedonian) and sometimes two, with the amount of time that there were two growing--with the duplication also spreading out to the other dioceses of the Church of Alexandria until eventually there were basically two separate synods and the schism settled in fully.

The schism between EO and OO did not ever consist of entire patriarchates leaving, the patriarchates of Antioch and Alexandria split into rival camps. This is quite different from Rome where the whole patriarchate did go into schism. We haven't, therefore, replaced any patriarchs, we've just always recognised different patriarchs as legitimate compared to the OOs.

The EO response to Nestorianism: Nestorianism is a heresy. Nestorius and Theodore of Mopsuestia and those who follow them are heretics.

The OO response to Nestorianism: (#())@# Nestorianism is a heresy. @(@(#* Nestorius and #*&@*%($ Theodore of Mopsuestia and those who follow them, the $*&@&&$, are heretics, @(#*@ it.

They weren't replaced; there was a split and the Chalcedonians chose their bishops and the non-Chalcedonians chose theirs.


Its as if you see the Catholic Church as being more valid than the Coptic. Or as if you group, Coptic, Nestorian and Arian together.
No, its just that there were no Orthodox bishops in post-1204 Rome to do it, afaik.

That would appear accurate to me.

Okay, clarification, there is no EO Patriarch of Rome for the same reason there was no OO Patriarch of Constantinople until the the 15th century.

Or There is no EO Patriarch of Rome for the same reason there is no Constantinopolitan OO Patriarch of Constantinople. Traditions of the Armenian are not the same as the traditions of the Constantinople.
