For those of you who are not familiar with the Churches teaching on the Latin schismatics, see this video. Roman Catholics have been condemned.

There are many Orthodox on this forum who are not familiar with the teachings of the Church, but you should really first get to know them before posting your videos otherwise they and others will think you are yet another mindless zealot come to spread a message.

You gotta be careful about us RCs. Be sure to keep garlic around your windows, and a wooden stake close at hand.

According to the Catholic Church Conservation Blog, the Diocese of Linz is fond of twigs instead of crosses. Not sure if that has changed. Hope so.

He became whatever fit the circumstances better at any given time. But it's too easy to get into vile arguments about him over this.

This thread started off goofy, but it got me thinking "what if".

What if the change in the Creed had been done the right way resulting in no schism.  Would the Catholic Church still be in communion with the Orthodox or would a later problem still caused it?

Well, the filioque did not cause a schism when first introduced. The Photian Schism had other causes as well, primarily the Pope of Rome taking umbrage with the uncanonical deposition of St. Ignatius by the emperor and his replacement with Photios, who was a layman at the time. Later, when the filioque appeared in pope's systatic letter in the early 11th century, his name was not entered into the diptychs, but this didn't appear at the time as a schism over filioque. Polemical arguments at the time covered filioque with other things, but communion appears to have continued in large part. The major problem was papal supremacy. But even this wasn't a pressing issue until 1100, when the Crusaders, with no objection from the pope, replaced the Patriarch of Antioch with a Latin after capturing the city.

You would do well to be more concerned about the scourge of the Moslems than of the innovative teachings of the Roman Catholics.  While Eastern Orthodoxy may have theological disputes with Catholicism, the Catholic Church is not a bastion imposing evil upon the world.  "Kill them with the sword," were the last words of the Moslem Prophet, a pedophile, his comments said in connection with his command to his followers to persuade non-Moslems to convert to his hearsay, as to those who refuse to convert to it.

Among other things, the video speaks of the several Orthodox condemnations of the Gregorian calendar. So according to the teaching on this video with regard to the calendar, does this mean then that any Christian, not just Roman Catholics,  who observes the New Calendar date of Christmas as December 25 is anathematised, condemned, and eternally damned? I don't see anything about the Julian calendar mentioned in the Bible. Is this a teaching from apostolic times, or was this a novel teaching that developed over time in the Eastern Orthodox Church?

It was not only the Orthodox but Protestants too who objected in the past to the Papal calendar innovation. Indeed there were riots here in England when it was eventually introduced with the populace demanding back their 11 days. Even in my lifetime I heard reference to Old Christmas from English folk who no idea about Eastern Orthodoxy. The calendar, the liturgical and festal unity that went with it was a sanctification of time.

The Byzantine Church could tolerate no difference. The Council of Trullo for example condemned each and every difference they could find with the Armenians and, to a somewhat lesser extent, the Latins. Either the Latin Church would have been Hellenised and Byzantinised or the schism would have happened anyway, even if the Latins would have given up Papal Supremacy.

Vlad Dracul, Vlad Tepes, and Augustin are all separate persons, AFAIK.

Vlad Dracul, Vlad Tepes, and Augustin are all separate persons, AFAIK.

Lol - Augustin is his own person, but the other two are one and the same guy.

They say that people started calling him "Dracul" (the devil < draco = dragon in Romanian), because he went over to the side of the devil ("s-a dat cu dracul"). He was also a member of some chivalresque society called the "Order of the Dragon".

Pray that Augustin doesn't follow in his footsteps!

Vlad II was known as Vlad Dracul. His son, Vlad III was known as Dracula.

It appears that the more luridly evil accounts of Dracula derive from his enemies.

Sorry, you're right - Dracula is actually supposed to come from "Drăculea" (~Dracul Jr). "Prâslea" (the same suffix) is "Junior", or the "little one" in Romanian folk tales.

Vlad II Dracul and Vlad III the Impaler or "Drăculea" are indeed different persons.

I think it was the father who turned Catholic. Anyways, it turns out that his son was not entombed at the monastery of Snagov - the tomb was opened and there were only some horse bones inside...

More likely because he joined the Order of the Dragon.

The theory is that in the eyes of the people he was "of the devil" (al dracu'). The play on words is tempting. But it's not necessarily bad or an insult if you call someone that in Romanian - it can just mean smart or capable, not easily defeated.

Many Romanian historians say that he is buried at the Comana monastery. However, according to an article in the Journal of Dracula Studies, Number 4, by C. Rezachevici (2002), the Orthodox monks at the Snagov monastery say he was buried there. In either case, it is claimed that he was RC and buried at an Orthodox monastery.

It's not unheard of for non-Orthodox monarchs/nobles to be buried in our monasteries. Queen Marie was Anglican and apparently sympathetic to the Bahá'í  - she is buried at Curtea de Argeș, with our other kings and queens. Deus suos agnoscet...

My understanding (and I'm afraid that I can't find the sources at the moment so this is from memory) is that Vlad Tepes had returned to the Orthodox Church prior to his death. He certainly did convert to Roman Catholicism at one point, but it appears to have been for political advantage. Of course, being the way he was any return to Orthodoxy might just as easily have been for political gain also. He certainly had the support of his cousin Stefan cel Mare, who was undoubtedly committed to the Orthodox Church. On the other hand Stefan was so preoccupied with defending Moldavia against the Turks that I doubt he would have cared if Vlad was Roman Catholic.

This thread started off goofy, but it got me thinking "what if".

What if the change in the Creed had been done the right way resulting in no schism.  Would the Catholic Church still be in communion with the Orthodox or would a later problem still caused it?

I'm pretty sure that the Schism was inescapable; contrary to popular belief, there wasn't just one sole issue that led to the Schism--such as the Pope or the Filioque--but the result of several factors closing in. I think the biggest issue is simply that the East and West were too geographically separated due to the Balkan Peninsula being invaded, and it was only natural that they would go in different directions.

Except that the Church is not supposed to 'go' in a 'direction'. She is supposed to hold fast the faith once delivered to the saints. Now, I'm not saying that the geographic separation and resulting cultural differences didn't contribute to the Schism. But I am saying that if we have a different faith now, it's because one side didn't do what it was supposed to do, and should have been able to do regardless of geography.

I agree.  The schism was really something that was a slow drifting apart rather than a lightning quick separation.  1054 was a convenient point in history to pin the Great Schism, but there is evidence that communion even continued after 1054 all the way to the Fall of Constantinople.  And by 1054 it shows that there were already a number of disagreements on a number of points and as the years go by it just grew and grew.  The growing schism meant a lack of dialogue and as the theology evolved on both sides, there was no check with the other side to make sure they were still on the same page.

Another big issue is the Reformation.  Although a united Church could have prevented the Reformation.  I've been thinking lately if someone who can make a comparison with Martin Luther and St. Maximos, and if Martin Luther could have had reformed the Church from within (and thus be kept orthodox in teaching) if he had the same avenues at St. Maximos had.  That is, St. Maximos was able to find a Patriarch that supported his position (the Pope of Rome) so he continued the fight within the Church.  Martin Luther did not have anywhere else to run to after Rome told him without question to retract his thesis.  I'm not knowledgable on the matter, but it did seem that Luther wasn't having a dialogue, but rather was being told.  And with no other bishop to support him, what else could he do but leave the Roman Catholic Church?

Now, post reformation, I believe the Roman Catholic Church is slowly falling into Luther's reformation.  I believe Trent is as guilty as Vatican II for the mess the church is in today.  Of course Trent externally displayed traditional Catholic beliefs, the mentality and approach changed significantly since then as an effort to continously respond to Protestant criticism.  The RCChurch seemed to think that they need to respond to and differentiate themselves from the Protestant criticism rather than staying true to their original character.  That is why we have all these Marian Dogmas and Pastor Aeternus, as a response to the Protestant criticism.  This is what I think.

I dont agree, georgians were also separated geographically, but they remained orthodox. Copts and Armenians are not really close to each other but they remained oriental orthodox.

True - Hungary has absolutely no relevance to either Wallachia or Moldavia as neither principality was ruled by them. Vlad was voievod of Wallachia and so the religion of the Hungarian rulers signifies very little. To the best of my knowledge the overwhelming majority of Wallachian rulers were always Orthodox rather than Roman Catholic (although Radu cel Frumos converted to Islam) and the only Roman Catholic ruler of Moldavia was Latcu Voda.

At 21:20, she says that "the Bible is still on the list of forbidden books" for Catholics.
