(p.368) 9 The Twentieth and Twenty- First Centuries
The Papacy and the Orthodox

A. Edward Siecienski

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the fallout from the First Vatican Council, as the Orthodox continued to deny the council’s claims that the pope’s universal jurisdiction and infallibility were contained in both Scripture and Tradition. However, during the mid-twentieth century the first signs of a thaw began to manifest themselves, as a “dialogue of love” began that blossomed during and after the Second Vatican Council. The 1964 meeting of Pope Paul VI (1963–78) and Patriarch Athenagoras (1948–72) paved the way for further encounters and began a process that allowed both sides to examine the biblical and historical evidence for the primacy with more objectivity than previous centuries would have allowed. After centuries of polemics, Catholic and Orthodox theologians began producing studies of the papacy that exhibited both a genuine ecumenical spirit and a level of consensus undreamed of only decades earlier.
