It didn't sound like you...so that's why I chimed in to check.Melodist said:I did not say "Roman Catholic" or "Eastern Orthodox", I was simply outlining the distinctions between latin and greek patristic traditions. I would not deny you St John Chrysostom anymore than I would deny my own Church Ss Ambrose, Augustine, Gregory the Great (whose presanctified liturgy we celebrate), etc.elijahmaria said:Then you deny to the Latin Church the patrimony of the Holy Fathers.Melodist said:Latin theology is the western theological tradition, traditionally based on the western fathers writing in the latin language. Eastern theology is the eastern theological tradition, traditionally based in the eastern fathers writing in the greek language. Due to cultural/language differences, the two traditions have formed distinct ways of expressing their theology.Alcuin said:What's 'Latin' theology? What's 'Eastern' theology? Are we talking about explicit points of disagreement or just general trends?
