Riassunto: Their continuing influence can still be felt in the modern codifications of the Roman Catholic Church and elsewhere among Western Christians. For the Orthodox East, however, their importance is even greater. Constituting the core of the corpus canonum common to all the Orthodox Churches, these canons remain the primary point of reference for their institutional life. Given the great importance of these canons of the ancient ecumenical councils, what precisely do they say and mean? What was the intention of their authors, the fathers of those councils? With the present work, His Eminence Archbishop Peter (L'Huillier) has given the English-speaking world authoritative answers to such questions. After providing an historical overview of each of the four councils, he meticulously examines their canons one by one. He translates them into clear and readable English on the basis of the best modern critical editions; he explains the sometimes ambiguous terminology of the original texts; he explorers the historical circumstances which gave rise to these canons in the first place; and he also indicates some of the ways in which they have been reinterpreted (and sometimes misinterpreted) in later centuries. The author does not claim to give answers to all the questions which we today might wish that the ancient canons addressed. Rather, as a scholar, he seeks to engage others in the challenges which honest scholarship poses, to lead them into the world of the ancient councils in order to discover the mens legislatoris. And at the same time, as a bishop, he seeks to discern the continuing significance of the ancient canons for the life of the Church today. The result is a critical study which will long remain an essential reference work for historians and churchmen alike.
L'autore: Archbishop Peter L'Huillier is Archbishop of the New York and New Jersey diocese of the Orthodox Church in America, and Adjunct Professor of Canon Law at St Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary.

Descrizione libro St. Vladimirs Seminary Press March 2000, 2000. Paper Back. Condizione libro: New. The Council of Nicea in 325 proclaimed the Son to be of one essence with the Father, the great dogmatic work of the Fathers gathered there embraced as the very Symbol of the Faith. Yet it also had other questions to resolve: how should the date for the celebration of Easter be determined? How should apostates be readmitted to the Eucharist? How should bishops be consecrated? Should kneeling be allowed on Sunday? All questions of varying weight, indeed, but some obviously still relevant and which nettle us to this day. And then there were others that seem, well, a bit more obscure: should a eunuch be allowed to be a priest, and if so, under what circumstances? It immediately becomes clear that the disciplinary (as contrasted with the dogmatic) decisions of the Councils require careful interpretation based on changing conditions of culture and time. Other canons that originally fell into disciplinary or administrative categories later emerged as cogent points in doctrinal debates, perhaps the most well-known being Canon 3 of the Second Council, which designated Constantinople as ''the new Rome'' and the prerogatives of its bishop second only to Rome -- thus implying that Rome's primacy was strictly practical and based on custom, not a divine institution. This book examines each of the first four Councils in order, describing the occasions of their calling and providing detailed historical background of the canons they promulgated and the ways they were transmitted and interpreted in Greek East and Latin West. The immense significance of the Trinitarian and Christological decisions of these Councils lends analogous importance to their canonical work and makes the value of this book self-evident.
