Their leader was Basil 372 8”,23 | but the present Second Council condemned him, since his 373 8”,23 | 8) says that the Second Council distributed the churches 374 8”,23 | appeared reasonable to the Council for the faith of the Nicene 375 8”,23 | latrocinium (Englished Robber Council, held A.D. 449) seated the 376 8”,23 | Constantinople. But the Council, which had become aware 377 8”,23 | also anathematized by the Council in addition. The Papists 378 8”,23 | Constantinople, they commanded that a Council be held at Sardica, a city 379 8”,23 | true, when going to the Council, wrote from Philippoupolis 380 8”,23 | Athanasius and Paul seats in the Council on the ground that they 381 8”,23 | the Easterners left the Council and returned to Philippoupolis. 382 8”,23 | with the meeting of the Council and acquitted Athanasius 383 8”,23 | Eusebius of Nicodemeia in the Council held at Antioch during the 384 8”,23 | present Canon says that the Council accepted (though this definition 385 8”,23 | which the present Second Council sent to the Romans mention 386 8”,23 | Tome of Antioch made by the Council held there, and that set 387 8”,23 | Constantinople by the Ecumenical Council in which we confessed the 388 8”,23 | then, of the Antiochian Council were accepted, so too its 389 8”,23 | acceptance by this Second Council on the ground that it is 390 8”,23 | synods, as in those of the council held in Ephesus, “the holy 391 8”,23 | as is said in the Seventh Council: “Of John and Thomas, the 392 8”,23 | VI when he said that this Council calls Patriarchs exarchs 393 8”,23 | ecumenical Synod (i.e., Council). But in order to make the 394 8”,23 | a case to an ecumenical council after it has been decided 395 8”,23 | synod of the diocese, this Council has given us to understand 396 8”,23 | understand that an ecumenical council is the final judge of all 397 8”,23 | Constantius to have the Ecumenical Council convoked which is called 398 8”,23 | Honorius to have an ecumenical council convoked to consider the 399 8”,23 | appeal to an ecumenical council, they are not liable to 400 8”,23 | however, why the First Ecum. Council, in its Canon VIII, accepted 401 8”,23 | confession, whereas this Second Council insisted upon the seal of 402 8”,23 | we answer that the First Council decided to accept them on 403 8”,23 | second principle, this Second Council accepted them only after 404 8”,23 | say, those of this Second Council, and also those of the Council 405 8”,23 | Council, and also those of the Council held in Laodicea in their 406 8”,23 | in English) of the Nicene Council, according to Socrates ( 407 8”,23 | local synod, or regional council, was held in Illiberia a 408 8”,23 | in fine that just as this Council decrees that Novatians returning 409 8”,23 | unanointed), so too does the Council of the Easterners baptize 410 8”,23 | in the first act of this Council.~ ~ [70] I said that Nestorius 411 8”,23 | from c. VII of this same Council, wherein the Council states 412 8”,23 | same Council, wherein the Council states that “all bishops 413 8”,23 | the letter which the same Council sent to the emperors concerning 414 8”,23 | do so, nor did this Third Council. That is why Joseph Bryennius 415 8”,23 | the fact that the Third Council accepted this Creed and 416 8”,23 | Nestorian, the Third Ecumenical Council would be Nestorian, and 417 8”,23 | fact, Cyril, and the Third Council, and the subsequent Church 418 8”,23 | anathematized by the present Council, since, instead of becoming 419 8”,23 | ordained in the present Council that the All-holy Virgin 420 8”,23 | to c.VII of the present Council in this connection may be 421 8”,23 | even before the First Ecum. Council, though the latter sanctioned 422 8”,23 | Theotoke even before this Third Council. But this Council, having 423 8”,23 | Third Council. But this Council, having sanctioned this 424 8”,23 | holy and ecumenical Sixth Council proclaimed Her a Virgin ( 425 8”,23 | that the minutes of this Council are divided into three parts. 426 8”,23 | apostatic convocation (or council) gathered round John of 427 8”,23 | anathematized both by this Third Council and by one held before it 428 8”,23 | been said, in this Third Council was filled by Cyril, whereas 429 8”,23 | 76] The reason why the Council anathematized those who 430 8”,23 | in the fifth Act of the Council held in Florence says that 431 8”,23 | present Canon. So this Third Council, foreseeing the possibility 432 8”,23 | of the Second Ecumenical Council together (for these two 433 8”,23 | before the Third Ecumenical Council was held, not only by councils 434 8”,23 | whatever the law says, the Council necessarily accedes to it. 435 8”,23 | explanation of the Creed of this Council which divine Cyril makes 436 8”,23 | with an eye to brevity, the Council did not explicitly say: “ 437 8”,23 | is the same as saying the Council itself, divine Cyril, I 438 8”,23 | The holy and Ecumenical Council assembled in the city of 439 8”,23 | than the one of the Nicene Council, but that it is not even 440 8”,23 | Bessarion of Nicaea at the Council held in Florence. But what 441 8”,23 | the whole Ecumenical Third Council. For he was its Exarch, 442 8”,23 | should say that it was the Council itself that spoke through 443 8”,23 | The Seventh Ecumenical Council says: “We preserve intact 444 8”,23 | to do so. For the Third Council, although urgently pressed 445 8”,23 | explain them. The Fourth Council, again, was faced with the 446 8”,23 | Likewise even the Fifth Council felt the need of adding 447 8”,23 | Yet the Fathers of that Council did not dare to do this, 448 8”,23 | debarred by any previous Council for anyone to add anything 449 8”,23 | to the Creed (though the Council held in Sardica before the 450 8”,23 | than that of the Nicene Council, yet, inasmuch as this Council 451 8”,23 | Council, yet, inasmuch as this Council was a particular and regional 452 8”,23 | particular and regional council, and in view of the fact 453 8”,23 | any Orthodox Ecumenical Council, it had no claim to become 454 8”,23 | of the Second Ecumenical Council, which stood as the representative 455 8”,23 | whole Church. For a regional council and a particular one always 456 8”,23 | gives way to an ecumenical council, but not vice versa). A 457 8”,23 | the words of the Second Council, held in Constantinople, 458 8”,23 | First Ec. C.; for the Third Council in the present Canon expressly 459 8”,23 | the Fathers of the Second Council expanded rather than added 460 8”,23 | violation of law for that Council to dare to add such developments 461 8”,23 | developments if any previous council anticipating this sort of 462 8”,23 | definitions of the Third Council as well as those of succeeding 463 8”,23 | Paul and Eugenius at the Council held during the reign of 464 8”,23 | year 879, and accepted that Council’s definition, which runs 465 8”,23 | who, after convening in a council, imparted the holy Creed; 466 8”,23 | this Pope John the Third Council held in Toledo during the 467 8”,23 | the ninth century, when a Council was held in Aquisgrana, 468 8”,23 | Petrovius.

Incidentally the Council did this when it sympathized 476 8”,23 | consequently not deposed by the Council. For at that time being 477 8”,23 | to assemble the present Council.
