New Armenian patriarch praises Turkey’s Erdogan
January 06, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Patriarch Sahak II Mashalian of Constantinople, who assumed office in December, leads one of the four sees of the Armenian Apostolic Church, an Oriental Orthodox church that ceased to be in full communion with the Holy See following the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon (451). The new patriarch criticized Armenians abroad for “exploiting” the 1915 Ottoman Turkish persecution of Armenians. A different prelate, Karekin II, leads the whole church as Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
