He says that the 17th century councils were corrected and some things were set aside. I interpret that to mean they were all faulty and not authoritative in their original form.welkodox said:He does say parts were accepted by the whole church, and parts were not. He doesn't specify which council of the two however or which part, but based on this quote earlier in the book
I would guess it is more likely the Confession of St. Petro Mohyla is the one with parts set aside. In any case, I only quoted one thing from the Confession of Dositheus.
I'm glad at least that we've arrived at the point where we can drop the western/eastern distinction and look to the Western and Eastern liturgical expressions of Orthodoxy as normative for the faith.
Western rite may be very old but it has not organically evolved over time within Orthodoxy. We don't even know if the rite will be successful within Orthodoxy. Time will tell.
