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 love AFR and listen daily—mostly to music but am beginning to explore the talk side as well. Thanks for your wonderful work. I was born into Orthodoxy, but love hearing and feeling the zeal of converts to our faith—AND learning FROM them!"
