Talk:Eastern Orthodox opposition to papal supremacy


Is this a work in progress?? It does not seem to have any cross-page linking (i mean, like it does not seem to be able to be found by any other way than by searching) (talk) 13:22, 12 July 2012 (UTC)


This page seems to be simply Eastern Orthodox apologia without any balance or caveats. Is Wikipedia really the place for such anti-Catholic diatribes? St.wulfric (talk) 12:46, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

No one ever seems to mind that Wikipedia has been used as a Western-centric apologia field since it's creation.

I created this article back in January 2012 using text extracted from Primacy of the Bishop of Rome. The problem was that all this text is sourced but the sheer volume of it was causing that article to become excessively long and unbalanced. As a result, we now have this article which is even more unbalanced but which I hoped could be made into an encyclopedic article somehow. I'm an inclusionist rather than a deletionist so I always try to salvage sourced text if at all possible. The article is, at the moment, an orphan and is in need of further work to make it more NPOV. If anyone has suggestions to improve it, I would very much appreciate it. Or, be bold and just fix it. --Pseudo-Richard (talk) 17:45, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
It was the least worst option. Laurel Lodged (talk) 23:26, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Do orthodox apologetics have a place in an encyclopedia? It needs to be completely rewritten or deleted. If the purpose of the article is to present the Orthodox response to Papal Supremacy (is there even an official response, or merely a collection of opinions?), it should be cut down and made into a subsection of a rewrite of the (truly inadequate) article on Papal Supremacy. If it deserves its own article, it should be clearly geared toward informing the reader of Orthodox views rather than convincing the reader. (talk) 14:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Tell this to the writers of the "Catholic Encyclopedia"!

This Page is concerning the Orthodox Catholic Position on the Issue of the claimed Supremacy of the Patriarchate of is accurate for the most part. If Roman Catholics desire a Latin Rite Response Article....go for it. If there are any inaccuracies they are separating Scripture from Tradition....this is a Western Notion. There is only Holy Tradition in which Scripture has primacy. All in all this article is fine. It is not an apologia....for that go to official Orthodox Websites. I am stunned that some Roman Catholics seem to think their Articles are simply Facts and not Apologetics. Please. Unless someone can point out material that does not reflect the historical and actual position of the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Communion...I suggest silence. - Rev. Fr.

Primacy or supremacyEdit

The article lead was edited and the article was moved from "Eastern Orthodox opposition to the doctrine of Papal Primacy" to "Eastern Orthodox opposition to papal supremacy" in 2013 yet the article was not changed.

The edit summary for the move was: "Making title more precise (primacy has never been at issue; supremacy is)".

I thought the various Eastern Orthodox Churches maintain separate concepts for the term primacy and the term supremacy? In other words, if most of the content came primacy of the Bishop of Rome, is this current opposition article title correct? —BoBoMisiu (talk) 22:26, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
