Papal Supremacy and the Parting of the Ways V
June 13, 2014 Length: 33:21
In this final episode of Reflection 15, Fr. John discusses the thirteenth-century popes Innocent III and Gregory IX, showing the close connection between their efforts to advance papal supremacy on the one hand and direct crusades against the Orthodox on the other. He concludes the reflection by noting the recent meeting of Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew and placing it within the context of centuries of cultural division between east and west.
"I listen to AFR Talk all the time. This is a priceless resource, and I thank God for it being available. Because of the wealth of knowledge, encouragement, and support I receive listening to your programs, I've grown much more as an Orthodox Christian than I would have without AFR. May God grant you many years."
