Quote:It was attended by 215 bishops, all Orientals. Basil of Gortyna in Illyria, however, belonged to the Roman patriarchate and called himself papal legate, though no evidence is extant of his right to use a title that in the East served to clothe the decrees with Roman authority. In fact, the West never recognized the 102 disciplinary canons of this council, in large measure reaffirmations of earlier canons. Most of the new canons exhibit an inimical attitude towards Churches not in disciplinary accord with Constantinople, especially the Western Churches. Their customs are anathematized and "every little detail of difference is remembered to be condemned" (Fortescue)
(…)
The Eastern Orthodox churches holds this council an ecumenical one, and adds its canons to the decrees of the Fifth and Sixth Councils. in the West St. Bede calls it (De sexta mundi aetate) a "reprobate" synod, and Paul the Deacon (Hist. Lang., VI, p. 11) an "erratic" one. Dr. Fortescue rightly says (op. cit. below, p. 96) that intolerance of all other customs with the wish to make the whole Christian world conform to its own local practices has always been and still is a characteristic note of the Byzantine Church. For the attitude of the popes, substantially identical, in face of the various attempts to obtain their approval of these canons, see Hefele, "Conciliengesch." (III, 345-48).

So basically a bunch of Eastern bishops got together, found some western guy that claimed he was friends with the Pope, to concoct a council that basically means the Church bending for the world's lusts. And then you guys complain of Western audacity of changing a tiny bit of the creed with the filioque (which is not even wrong, theologically).

The point of Archbishop Vasil''s article is that the Eastern Church gradually ceded to local customs, to pressures from the emperor, so on and so forth.
I for one can't wait to read the article in its entirety.


Well all of the seven ecumenical councils were a "bunch of eastern bishops" getting together.  :grin:


The Catholic Encyclopedia doesn't tell all of the story. All Trullo did in the case of remarriage was confirm and expand on St Basil's canon. St Basil didn't close his eyes and pluck that canon out of the sky. By his time It was an established practice and wide spread enough for him to prescribe penance for it. Remember when St Basil lived. As to the council  being "anathematized....[in] every little detail", as I mentioned Pope Hadrian accepted all of the canons of Trullo. Pope Constantine accepted some of them. So it may have been anathematized later but that certainly wasn't the case during the nearly 400 years we were united after the council took place.
