The Papacy and the Orthodox

A. Edward Siecienski

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the Council of Ferrara-Florence and the difficult centuries that followed for both East and West—Rome dealing with the challenges posed by the Protestant Reformation while the Constantinopolitans learned how to survive life under the sultan. The Union of Brest brought some local Orthodox churches into communion with Rome, but for most of the Orthodox world the failure of Ferrara-Florence and the rise of the so-called “uniates” were clear signs that the pope’s plans to subjugate the Eastern Church must be resisted. The ensuing centuries contained little by way of fruitful exchange despite the presence on both sides of figures who continued to hold out hope for Church union. By the time Pope Pius IX (1846–78) and the First Vatican Council (1869–70) promulgated the doctrines of the pope’s infallibility and universal jurisdiction it seemed all hope for better relations had disappeared completely.

Keywords:   Council of Ferrara-Florence, Union of Brest, Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Pastor Aeternus, infallibility
