Russian theologians discuss papal primacy January 04, 2008

A Russian Orthodox theological commission met last week to discuss the question of papal primacy, reports SIR, the news agency of the Italian Catholic bishops' conference.

Papal primacy was the main subject for discussion at an October meeting of the joint Catholic-Orthodox theological commission, meeting in Ravenna, Italy. But representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church walked out of that meeting, citing disagreements over the seating of delegates from the Estonian Orthodox Church, which Moscow does not recognize.

At its December meeting, the Russian Orthodox theological panel also discussed a document on Lutheran-Orthodox relations. The sessions were chaired by Metropolitan Filaret of Minsk, Belarus.
