Council of Orange

On a recent White Horse Inn broadcast they discussed the topic of Pelagianism and provided a historical overview.  They also read the Canons of the Council of Orange, which was an ecumenical council in the 6th century that condemned Pelagianism and Semi-Pelagianism.  It was quite surprising and impressive.  So, in the next several weeks we will be posting the canons from this council for reference.


This is very timely considering the passage we are currently working through in the Gospel of John.



  1. S2C,

    Hey mate, also at the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus (431) the Pelagians were condemned theologically.

    Just a note, I have drawn back a bit from the E. Orthodox. I am still very friendly with them, and believe much of their truth. But like Luther, my conscience must stand on the Word of God, and not just church council alone.

    I am having a discussion with an Orthodox about Justinian I. The Byzantine emperor fell into heresy just before he died, with Apththartodocetism. That the flesh and body of Christ were somehow “incorruptible”. Sad error for such an “orthodox” Christian emperor. It springs out of Monophysite.

    Irish…Fr. R.

  2. Irish,

    Good to hear from you…I’ll be posting excerpts from the canons of the council in the next few weeks. It’s good stuff loaded with proof texts.


  3. Irish,

    I am interested to get your take on the latest post on the nature of the kingdom of God…from an anglican perspective.
