Agreement between Easter and Oriental Orthodox (2)

Blog 27

Another document written about thirty years later (1990) demonstrated the continuous dialogue between the Orthodox Chalcedonian Church and the Oriental Orthodox non- Chalcedonian Churches in the Orthodox Center of the Ecumenical Patriarchate Chambesy, Geneva, Switzerland, 
“The Orthodox agree that the Oriental Orthodox will continue to maintain their traditional Cyrillian terminology of ‘one nature of the incarnate Logos,’ since they acknowledge the double consubstantiality of the Logos which Eutyches denied. The Oriental Orthodox agree that the Orthodox are justified in their use of the two-natures formula, since they acknowledge that the distinction is ‘in thought alone.’” [1]
