The Filioque

Although the Reformation split the Latin-speaking world into a host of competing churches and ecclesial communities, the filioque was not among those issued challenged by the Protestant critique and remained a central part of the reformers’ faith. Orthodox Confessions of the period continued to reject the filioque, just as Roman Catholic documents of the era made clear that acceptance of the Florentine decrees were a non-negotiable condition for future reconciliation. However a new period of rapprochement started in 1874 with the consultations at Bonn, when for the first time in centuries polemics were replaced by genuine dialogue. If not itself a period of great ecumenical achievement, the nineteenth century nevertheless paved the way for what was to come, and allowed the twentieth century to become a time of immense progress on the road to unity.
