  • THE ORTHODOX RESPONSE

    "The Symbol of the Faith must be preserved inviolate, as at its origin. Since all the holy doctors of the Church, all the Councils and all the Scriptures put us on our guard against heterodoxy, how dare I, in spite of these authorities, follow those who urge us to unity in a deceitful semblance of union—those who have corrupted the holy and divine Symbol of Faith and brought in the Son as second cause of the Holy Spirit" - St. Mark of Ephesus - The Pillar of Orthodoxy

The West

1183 AD – WESTERN HISTORIOGRAPHY
Joachim of Fiore develops a seemingly occult -quasi-millenarian dispensationalist historiographical view, dividing history into three epochs to be analogous with the Trinity: The Ancient (Age of the Son), The Middle Age (of the Father), and the Age fo the Holy Spirit – the ‘new’ or Modern age. This becomes the platform for historical assumptions in the West ever since. In this, the West has extended St. Augustine’s speculations about created things being analogous to God into a historical view, and this becomes the prefigure of Hegel and then Marx and Marxism.

1200 AD (approx) – SCHOLASTICISM
Rediscovery by the Western (Roman Catholic) Church of Aristotle through Jewish and Muslim Philosophy (Maimonides, Avicenna, Averroes). Rise of scholasticism in Latin universities.

Summa Theologica (Thomas Aquinas) kicks scholasticism into high gear, making hay on the foundation of St. Augustine’s speculations, and systematizing religious philosophy in a way previously unparalleled.
