  • My personal “jihad” against Gaddafi

    1987, April 2, headquarters of the №36050 division of the Bulgarian People’s Army, Momchilgrad. The office of the chief of artillery intelligence. I, the private, sit at his desk and write “The Doctor of My Life” – those 13 pages of handwritten explanations on plaid sheets, on which it depends whether I will go to a military court to disband the army or not. Based on these explanations, the Deputy Chief of Military Counterintelligence of the Army Headquarters decided that I was “either innocent as an angel or the worst scum he had ever met,” choosing the first option and terminating the investigation. Naturally, during my studies at the Theological Academy “St. Kliment Ohridski ”- Sofia I am under constant surveillance with all the negatives of this, but at least I knew that I was being watched, that maybe against me special technical means are used, now known as special intelligence means (in the sense of today’s Bulgarian Law on Special intelligence means these are the technical means and the operational means for their application), but above all to take into account the human factor. The office of the Holy Synod was buzzing with paid, operative workers and agents, as well as volunteer informers and others with the lowest spiritual temperature.

  • Climate finance, Fight hunger and poverty, the words ECOSOC President

    Ensuring COVID-19 vaccines for all will be critical if the world is to defeat the pandemic, the President of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Munir Akram, said on Friday in his address to the closing its high-level segment.


    Another important document on the decrees of the Council of Nicaea and early Arianism, authored by Emperor Constantine and addressed to Arius, is The Wicked Interpreter – Message of the Decrees of the Council of Nicaea, incipit: Κακὸς ἑρμηνεὺς (The Wicked Interpreter; dating: 333. The document ends with the words “Performed by Syncletius and Gaudentius, magistrates, when Paterius was prefect of Egypt, and was read in the palace.” (43.) And on the other hand: May God protect you, beloved.


    Being an “Antiochian”, Arius chose Alexandria as his field of activity, where he was ordained a presbyter. Here he entered into a dispute with Bishop Alexander and began to preach about the Son of God that He was not born of eternity from the being of God the Father, but was created in time. If He also represents the highest creation of God, through Whom the world was created, but is not equal and is not eternal to the Father, and although He is called the Son, then this is not in essence, but in adoption.

    After the regulation of the Arian problem with the first canon, the Second Ecumenical Council in its 2nd Canon emphasized the next main point for the reaction of the anti-Nicaean party against the trampling of the metropolitan autonomy and the authority of the provincial synods / councils as a final court. changing the status of the council convened in Serdica from an ecumenical to a local one, and also limited the appetites of the Roman bishop for supremacy. Pope Damasius (366-384) ratified the Creed at the Second Ecumenical Council, held in Constantinople (381), at which new Trinitarian heresies were exposed, but did not accept only the 3rd canon of the same council, which gave precedence. of the Bishop of Constantinople, on equating the dignity of the Primate of New Rome with that of the Primate of Old Rome.


    The bishops of the East were provoked by the term “one in essence” (omousios) defined in Nicaea, as many of them saw in it a revival of the heresy of Sabelius. It is most probable that many of those who took part in the Council of the Eastern Party in Philippopolis had previously participated in the Council of the Sanctification in Antioch in 341, and in Sozomen we find several familiar names: Not only Eusebius took part in this council, who after Paul’s expulsion was transferred from Nicomedia to Constantinople, but also …. Theodore of Heraclius (formerly called Perintus) …. and many others ruling the Metropolitan Churches or no less important. ”


    The Eastern bishops, supporters of the semi-Arian party, most of whom were members of the Council of Philippopolis in 343 with the subsequent supreme ecclesiastical forums, express precisely the pre-Nicene conservatism hostile to the term “omousios,” an innovation included in the Creed. the Ecumenical Council. This is one of the main reasons and explanations for the high intensity of church councils in the IV century due to the many anti-Trinitarian heresies and false teachings, in particular the teachings of Arius and his derivatives. Heresies seem to be multiplying, which in turn multiplies the convening of pro and contra fairs, each of them.

  • The second marriage of the clergy in Orthodox perspective (2)

    The church sees a lack of abstinence in remarriage. This defect also affects the person with whom you marry. That is why this rule protects the shepherd from such a reflection and does not allow those who are married to a widow or who have left (divorced) to be accepted in the sacred hierarchy. There was a similar law in the Old Testament church – Judith 16: 22-23: “She was longed for, but the man did not know her until the end of her days, from the day her husband Manasseh died.

  • The second marriage of the clergy in Orthodox perspective (1)

    As a God-man organism, the Church of Christ evolved according to the historical epoch of codification of individual rules, which right has always belonged to the conciliar conscience of the episcopal college on dogmatic or administrative problems and the adoption of new models in canonical practice.

  • The second marriage of the clergy in Orthodox perspective (3)

    Careful exegesis may seek to see whether the apostle, with the precept of monogamy, forbids any other kind of marriage or only certain kinds of existing marital practices. In addition to monogamy, the following 6 types of attitudes towards marriage are possible: 1) virginity; 2) celibacy after the first divorce; 3) widowhood after the death of the first wife; 4) simultaneous digamy or polygamy, ie. marriage to two or more women at the same time; 5) digamy or polygamy not in its own sense, ie. concubinage, violation of the purity of married life; 6) consistent digamy or polygamy, ie. marriage after the loss of one or more wives, regardless of the cause of the divorce (death, divorce).

    Christians are obliged to convey the message of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ to every person and to every nation. They testify in the context of their neighbors, who live according to other religious beliefs and ideological views. True witness follows Christ in respecting and acknowledging the uniqueness and freedom of others. We must admit that as Christians we have often looked for the worst in others and given a negative assessment of their religions. May we, as Christians, learn to witness to our neighbors in a spirit of humility and joy.

  • Honoring the saints of the West (2)

The text we offer here is from his report to the Council of Bishops in 1950.

    Cappadocia has been a Christian territory for sixteen centuries. In this land one finds that dreamy intimacy of the Byzantine church, the supernatural atmosphere which the Fathers of the Orthodox Church, like Gregory of Nazianzus, wished to see realized in the sanctuary. St. Gregory bequeathed us 244 letters / epistles (Greek Patrology, volume 37), which, like most of his verses, we date to the period of his withdrawal from Arians between 383 and 389. But the two epistles to Presbyterian Cledonius (CI and CII) were written in 382 and were directed against the heresy of the Apollinarians (cf. J. Mossey, Gregoire de Nazianze, – Dictionaire d ”Histoire et de Geographie Ecclesiastique, Fascicule 126, 1987, col. 17-18). A deliberate local church council was convened against Apollinarianism in Rome in 382, ​​in which he took an active part and blah. Jerome. Together with letter CCII (202), they compiled the three “Theological Messages” of the saint, which were thoroughly studied by P. Gallay of the Institute of Scientific-Critical Publishing “Christian Sources” in Paris.


    In human society, freedom does not consist in the ability to do whatever you like, it would be an extreme disorder in the State, which would turn into oppression. But it consists in the possibility, thanks to civil laws, to live according to the precepts of eternal law. For those who rule, freedom is not to be able to command indiscriminately and on their whims. This would be criminal for the Church and very harmful for the State. The power of human laws must be such that it is seen as an application of the eternal law, and nothing is decreed that is not contained in the divine law, which is the source of all law – ecclesiastical or state. Very wise bl. Augustine wrote: “I believe that you see well that that civil law has nothing just and lawful that men have not drawn from this eternal law” (On Free Will, Book I, Chapter IV, No. 15).


    Representatives of Orthodox groups initially perceived it as a new concept that could lead to doctrinal compromises and that is alien to the Orthodox theological approach, because the truth cannot be divided and distinguished “to varying degrees of validity.” In the Holy Scripture, on which the unity of the Church is based, no distinction is made between major and minor truths, essential and insignificant teachings. Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.” The understanding of the truth is a result of the grace of St. The Spirit of truth (John 16:13), who guides us to the fullness of this truth and testifies of Jesus as Lord (1 Cor. 12: 3). The Orthodox Advisory Group of the World Council of Churches clarified that this critical position does not mean that there is no distinction or distinction in Orthodox theological discussions and formulations. Orthodox theologians believe that the concept of “hierarchy of truths” could help to recognize and recognize constant and common teachings of the faith, such as the seven Ecumenical Councils and others. expositions of the Christian faith. The assertion of a “hierarchy of truths” is based on the belief that there is indeed a difference in the “closeness” of each individual truth to the foundation of faith, and the center and foundation is the person of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, to whom faith and life are oriented. .

  • Qumran horoscopes (4Q186, 4QMessAr)

    Among the Dead Sea manuscripts were found two documents from cave пе 4, one of which was written in ancient Hebrew and the other in Aramaic, and the dating of these manuscripts probably dates back to the end of the first century BC. These documents contain fragments of “horoscopes” or more precisely – of astrological physiognomies about the relationship between the characteristics of the individual and fate, according to the configuration of the stars at the birth of the individual. The Hebrew text published by J. Allegro is written with a childish cryptography (cipher). The text goes from left to right, instead of the normal for biblical Hebrew – from right to left, and also uses along with the standard square font (“ketav meruba”) and letters from the archaic (paleo-) Hebrew (or Phoenician), as well as letters from the Greek alphabet.


    It is difficult to determine the exact number of practicing (regular church) Orthodox Christians, it is only certain that the majority of self-identified as such do not know what God’s commandments are or what the Orthodox Catechism teaches, because they are from the so-called “Christmas Christians” ( celebrating Christmas and Easter in a family circle) or, as similar Christians around the world are also called – “four-wheeled Christians”, i.e. those who attend church for the first time in a pram to be baptized, their next entry into the temple is in a wedding limousine, when they enter into a church marriage, and finally they all leave for the last time for the temple, riding in the mourning hearse.


    Paul of Samosata is Bishop of Antioch, where he holds the public office of Procurator ducenarius, and has the unreserved support and patronage of Queen Zenobia of Palmyra. In 267, Zenobia’s husband Odenat and his eldest son died, and nominally the rule over the Palmyrians and the titles of great “King of Kings” and corrector totius orientis passed to his younger son Vabalat, but he actually ruled his widow. The educated ruler of Palmyra is tolerant, against any persecution, protector of Christians, unlike the Roman Empire, which is a systematic persecutor of Christianity.


    For the Church in the East and in the West, Origen is considered the most famous theologian of his time. He is generally perceived as an Orthodox theologian, although his Christology is not at all Orthodox. He is the most productive writer on Christological topics and has contributed immensely to the history of theology, developing the thesis of the eternal birth of the Son, but it is here that in relation to the divinity of the Son he interprets the “only begotten Son” in the sense that it is an instruction. only for the eternal sonship of Jesus Christ by God. For, if He is born in time, then the Son will not be different from the other creatures, from which it follows that He should not be called “the only begotten”.

  • The Geneva Kulturkampf (Projections of 19th century religious discrimination)

    Kulturkampf is a term in the history of Prussia and Germany, denoting a period of political and ideological clashes in the most general sense between German Protestantism and German Catholicism, and in a narrower sense between the rising German statehood represented by Otto von Bismarck and the perceived from it as hindering the national rise (in terms of secular education, civil marriages, etc.), subordinate to the Pope Catholic clergy. It all began in Berlin in 1870 with the annexation by Prussia of the other German states, which gave rise to the second (and later the third) German Reich. In 1872, the influential Jesuit order was banned. A number of other laws and administrative measures limit the influence of the Catholic Church in Germany. After a period of more or less intense struggle, in 1887 the new Pope Leo XIII declared the conflict over, which he said “harmed the church and did not benefit the state.”


    The Library of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, built by the Holy King and Prophet Solomon 3,000 years ago. There, in the temple library, the sacred books (of the Old Testament) were kept in order not to add anything to the sacred text. This, according to the Talmud, guaranteed the purity of the scriptures. There were three sacred scrolls in the Jerusalem temple (Hebrew for Sefer, Megillat Sefer): Sefer Mahon (named after a settlement near Tiberias, an important literary center), Sefer Zatute (miniature, minuscule scroll), Sefer Hee ( according to the name of its owner, who was a noted writer).

  • Philippi or Philippopolis (2)

    Prof. Asen Chilingirov presents a very plausible hypothesis for a possible change in the New Testament geography sacra – to the citizens of which ancient city was the Epistle to the Philippians addressed to the Apostle Paul. Born in 1932 in Sofia. Graduated in history, music and art history in Bulgaria. Since 1964 he has lived and worked in Berlin, Germany. He also studied art history at Humboldt University. He is the author of over 400 scientific papers. Among them are “Great History of Christian Art in Bulgaria” and “Cultural History of Bulgaria”, published in German in FRGermany and the GDR. He teaches at the Universities of Berlin and Leipzig. He was a chief consultant for Balkan art in the Encyclopedia of Medieval Art in Rome from 1984 to 1995.

  • The Council of Philippopolis (Nicene Orthodoxy and Arian Heresy)

    The core of the theme is chronologically situated in the Roman-Byzantine period, when with the construction of the new capital, the center of gravity of the Empire moved from West to East. Some forms of Christianity do not accept the Nicene doctrine. The antagonism between Orthodoxy and Arianism was to the detriment of the Empire, so during the reign of Emperor Constantius II, a staunch and zealous Arian, the struggle against Nicaean Orthodoxy was waged mercilessly.

  • Orthodoxy and Heresy in IVth century

    We can assume that there was a first meeting of the Eastern bishops invited by the imperial vicar of Philippopolis – held on the city’s Acropolis (as suggested by Leslie Barnard in his study of the Council of Serdica in 343) or at the stadium where it met The “Thracian National Assembly” of the autonomous ancient city, probably before they left for Serdica, where the ecumenical council convened in 343 was to be held. With the constitution of a separate eastern council in Philippopolis, there is every reason to locate, as the venue of the council sessions of 344, an early Christian basilica in Palestinian-Roman style (at the address of the metropolitan house of today’s Roman Catholic bishop of the city Plovdiv, Blvd. “Kn. Maria Luiza” №3). The early Christian church is astonishing in its size (including the atrium and the courtyard): its total length is 86.30 m (the length of the nave with the apse is 56.50 m) and its width is 38.50 m; it is the largest building of its kind from the IV-VI century in the Balkans – for comparison, the Basilica of Constantine in Rome is 100 m long by 76 m wide, and the basilica in Pompeii – 67 m by 25 m.


    ue to the totalitarian nature of communist monoideology in the Eastern Bloc countries, the rich treasury of Russian religious philosophy was repressed and locked to a wide readership. My interest in Russian religious philosophy and, in particular, my piety for this philosopher, called “the father of Orthodox ecumenism”, date back to that time.

  • The Qumranite Society or the New Union Society

    e discovery of the Dead Sea Manuscripts between 1947 and 1956 was an event that ushered in a new era of Bible study, early post-biblical Judaism, and the beginning of Christianity. Written in Hebrew and Aramaic and dating from 200 BC. until the middle of the first century AD, they allowed an incomparable and revolutionary view of Jewish life and worldview in Palestine during a fateful period in the development of Jewish and Christian religious thought. With their first publication in 1962 and the revised 1975 edition, these unbiblical Qumran texts became an accessible and convenient introduction to the organization, customs, history, and beliefs of the municipality that created them. These remarkable documents serve as an authoritative guide in the study of ancient Judaism and the nascent Christianity of the same period.

  • Views on socio-political construction of Vladimir Solovyov and his followers

  • Skechers UK Announced as Jessie May Supporters

    Monday 7 June, 2021

    Jessie May is delighted to announce that Skechers UK, based in St Albans, have joined the charity as corporate partners.

    Jessie May is a hospice at home care charity that provides palliative and respite care to terminally ill children, and their families, across the South West. A Jessie May nurse will provide specialist nursing care to terminally ill children with extremely complex medical needs in their own home.

    Skechers have provided all Jessie May nurses with a free pair of their memory-foam trainers, to help them keep comfortable during their daily work. They have also generously offered 50% off to all office staff, recognising the hard work that they undertake behind the scenes to support the team of nurses.

    The partnership has come about through the friendship of Jessie May nurse Charlotte Baker and Skechers MD Pete Youell. Having heard many stories from Charlotte about the work Jessie May do, Pete was keen to help.

    “Here at Skechers we endeavour to help our community the best way we can” says Peter Youell, Managing Director at Skechers UK & Ireland. “Partnering with the amazing children’s hospice, Jessie May, on such an important cause is an honour and we managed to provide care staff with comfortable work shoes that are essential to their role”. Lindsey Horton, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Jessie May, is delighted with the support.

    “Jessie May nurses can be on their feet all day, supporting children and families when they need it the most. Could you walk a mile in their shoes? I doubt it, but Skechers decided that a little comfort would help and embraced our nurses by offering them footwear that supports their feet as well as looking fashionable. It’s so lovely to partner with a company that has so much “sole”. Thank you so much and welcome to the Jessie May family.”

    Corporate partners form an essential aspect of support for Jessie May. There are many ways companies can get involved including Caring at Work or having Jessie May as your Charity of the Year
