Reviews - What do customers think about St. Joseph Church History?
Shaky Sep 18, 2003
While I've only browsed through the book, and not bought it, my reason for not doing so illustrate my reason for not doing so.
In recounting the history of the Great Schism of 1054, Fr Lovasik states that the Greeks had *removed* the filioque clause from the Nicene Creed.
In fact, the filioque was not originally part of the Creed, first having been added in 534 at a council in Toledo, the purpose being to combat Islam. The addition was initially opposed by the Roman See, but eventually (8th or 9th century) added, but only in the west. The Eastern Churches rejected, and, for the most part, continue to reject, this addition. Those in communion with Rome, however, regard it as a valid, but non-binding, statement of faith.
Having seen this error in reporting one of the pivotal moments in the Church's history, I found it impossible to consider reading the rest of the book.
