A DIALOGUE BETWEEN AN ORTHODOX  CHRISTIAN AND A RATIONALIST   ON THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST  Vladimir Moss    Orthodox.  My  friend,  I  would  like  to  ask  you  a  question:  what  do  you  understand by the words: “We are saved by the Blood of Christ”?  Rationalist.  That  we  are  saved  by  the  Sacrifice  of  Christ  Crucified,  whereby  He washed away our sins in His Blood shed on the Cross.  Orthodox. I agree. And how precisely are our sins washed away?  Rationalist.  By  true  faith,  and  by  partaking  of  the  Holy  Mysteries  of  the  Church with faith and love, and especially the Mystery of the Body and Blood  of Christ in the Eucharist.  Orthodox. Excellent! So you agree that in the Mystery of the Body and Blood  of Christ we partake of the very same Body that was nailed to the Cross and  the very same Blood that was shed from the side of the Saviour?  Rationalist. Er, yes…  Orthodox.  I  see  that  you  hesitate,  my  friend.  Is  there  something  wrong  in  what I have said.  Rationalist.  Not  exactly…  However,  you  must  be  careful  not  to  understand  the Mystery in a cannibalistic sense.  Orthodox. Cannibalistic? What do you mean, my friend? What is cannibalistic  here?  Rationalist. Well, I mean that we must not understand the Body of Christ in  the  Eucharist  to  be  a hunk  of  meat.  That  would  be  close  to  cannibalism  –  to  paganism.  Orthodox. You know, the early Christians were accused of being cannibals by  their  enemies.  However,  cannibals  eat  dead  meat.  In  the  Mystery  we  do  not  partake of dead meat, but of living flesh, the Flesh of the God‐Man. It is alive  not only through Its union with His human Soul, but also through Its union  with the Divine Spirit. And that makes It not only alive, but Life‐giving.  Rationalist. Still, you mustn’t understand this in too literal a way. Did not the  Lord say: “The flesh is of little use; it is the spirit that gives life”(John 6.63)?  Orthodox.  Yes  indeed,  but  you  must  understand  this  passage  as  the  Holy  Fathers understand it. St. John Chrysostom says that in these words the Lord  was  not  referring  to  His  own  Flesh  (God  forbid!),  but  to  a  carnal  understanding of His words. And “this is what carnal understanding means –  looking  on  things  in  a  simple  manner  without  representing  anything  more.  We should not judge in this manner about the visible, but we must look into  all  its  mysteries  with  internal  eyes.” 1   If  you  think  about  the  Flesh  of  Christ  1 St.

Thucydides&Rationalism 2005 88%

It is my intention in this essay to present one example of this type of hermeneutical rupture, to make the argument that in the process of creating a Western Rationalist Tradition of ‘History’, the historical texts of Thucydides have themselves now become effectively absent from the hermeneutical equation.

there are no indisputable guidelines that allow the historian methodologically to go behind a documented experience of the world, an experience recorded in an otherwise authentic historical text, in order to determine what the author of the text could have in fact experienced.” (Aiken 1997:403) Finally, one can indeed justify to some extent the general rationalist parti pris of the modern hermeneut on the grounds that it conforms not only to the pervasive rationalist Zeitgeist of the modern period, but also, and more importantly, to his (apparently) inclusively rational experience of the world.

Archimandrite Euthymius K. Epiphaniou  Faidrou 1‐3‐8 Pakgrati,  Athens 1135 GREECE    In Athens on October 11, 1991    ENCYCLICAL – EPISTLE  of he who relies on the Lordʹs mercy, Euthymius K. Epiphaniou the Cypriot,  To the Reverend Clergy of all the parishes, the Monks and Nuns of the Holy  Monasteries and Hermitages of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox  Christians of Greece and elsewhere.    Brethren, Fathers and Sisters, bless!      ʺWhen sin becomes chief, it draws everyone to perditionʺ and ʺWe are  guilty  for  these  things,  but  suffer  for  other  things.ʺ  By  diverting  from  these  reasonings, God granted and arranged a great winter [suffering] in the realms  of our Church for 20 years and more, accelerating recently, with innumerable  consequences.      This  is  because,  beloved  brethren,  we  displaced  the  order  of  the  Church, we departed from the line of navigation and tradition of the Holy  Father  kyr  Matthew  Karpathakis  and  we  accepted  a  cheirothesia  from  the  Russians of the Diaspora, the apostasy of eight clergy from the Church of the  Genuine  Orthodox  Christians  occurred,  and  the  falling  away  of  the  reposed  Monk Callistus (former [Bishop] of Corinth Callistus), who were all deposed  and moreover Callistus with the accusation of rejection and destruction of the  icon  of  the  Holy  Trinity  and  for  fighting  against  saints  (See  K.G.O.  October,  1977, page 9). [Here Fr. Euthymius refers to the very tampering and additions  he  made  to  the  original  acts  prior  to  their  publication  in  the  official  periodical.]      This  is  because,  in  1979,  the  ʺgroup  of  new  theologiansʺ  surrounding  our  Archbishop  Andrew,  put  together  a  speech  and  by  the  mouth  of  the  Archbishop  the  following  blasphemy  was  voiced:  ʺThe  presence  of  the  struggle of the Church of Genuine Orthodox Christians, as we are well aware  is  of  the  highest  importance,  equates  with  the  incarnation  of  the  Lord,  his  Good  News,  his  Crucifixion  and  His  Holy  Resurrection,  to  wit,  it  is  the  Church  of  Christ,ʺ  and  through  the  periodical  ʺChurch  of  the  Genuine  Orthodoxʺ  (See  the  issue  for  June,  1979)  it  was  circulated  ʺurbi  et  orbiʺ  and  although  many  of  us  protested  that  this  blasphemy  be  removed,  it  never  happened. [Here  Fr.  Euthymius  refers  to  his  own  tampering  of  the  original  text and quotes it as ʺThe presence of the struggle of the Church, despite the  official  clarification  that  the  real  text  is  ʺThe  presence  of  the  Struggling  Church.ʺ  Thus  he  ignores  the  three  subsequent  corrections  and  explanations  given  in  the  official  periodical  in  the  following  issues:  October,  1979,  p.  21;  April,  1980,  p.  31;  and  February,  1983,  p.  57.  After  a  decade  since  this  issue  was  settled,  Fr.  Euthymius  brought  it  up  again  in  his  present  ʺencyclicalʺ  simply in order to satisfy his demands that the Genuine Orthodox Church not  be identified with the Church of Christ.]      This  is  because  the  new  theologians  (according  to  the  opinion  and  support of our Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians), since they were  lacking a means of financial support, they decided to enterprise [the Church]  as  a  bankrupt  company,  and  they  renamed  [the  Church]  ʺUninnovatedʺ  [Akainotometos],  and  unfortunately  the  Hierarchs  placed  their  seal  [on  this]  because the new theologians, instead of correcting themselves and repenting  for the damage that they provoked in the Church, they placed a schedule of  income for their group and they invented unorthodox ways for various clergy  to  receive  ʺDegreesʺ  in  theology,  they  also  puffed  out  the  minds  of  various  assisting  garb‐bearers  [rasophoroi]  who  have  declared  a  war  once  more  against  Orthodoxy. They  abysmally  war  against  and  reject  the  tradition  of  the  Church,  refusing  to  venerate  the  icon  of  the  Holy  Trinity  (Father,  Son  and Holy Spirit), the icon of the Resurrection of the Lord, replacing it with  the Descent into Hades, the icon of the Pentecost if our Lady the Theotokos  is present in it, and they accept the icon of the Nativity of Christ (with the  bathtub  and  the  midwives).  And  by  these  means  having  become  iconomachs‐iconoclasts,  and  deniers  of  their  faith,  regardless  of  whether  they are girdled in priesthood. Wearing the skin of sheep, they work towards  the destruction of the flock, by writing and circulating pamphlets against the  abovementioned holy icons. They impose their heretical opinions upon those  that  are  submitted  to  them.  They  create  civil  splintering  and  division  in  the  Monasteries.  They  question  various  Fathers  of  the  Church,  particularly  St.  Nicodemus  of  Mt.  Athos,  and  the  new  pillar  of  Orthodoxy  kyr  Archbishop  Matthew  Karpathakis.  They  provoke  quarrels  and  disputes  like  what  happened last Pascha at Lebadia [Diaulia] and Bolus [Demetrias] on the day  of the Resurrection, and the worst is that they work together for the purpose  of  placing  canons  [of  penance]  on  Nuns  of  the  Convent  [of  the  Entry  of  the  Mother of God at Keratea] and Monks, by various Spiritual Fathers, under the  accusation that the Nuns and Monks praiseworthily insist upon keeping what  the Catholic Church upholds and preserves.      They  who  behave  as  neo‐iconoclasts  are:  the  Hieromonks  Cassian  Braun,  Amphilochius  Tambouras,  Neophytus  Tsakiroglou,  Tarasius  Karagounis, and the foreign [incomer] Archpastor of the Holy Monastery of  the  Transfiguration  [at  Kouvara]  Hegumen  Stephan  Tsakiroglou,  who  declares that he is a rationalist.      My beloved, by giving in to one evil, ten thousand others follow, and  the words are fulfilled to the maximum: we are at fault and for this we suffer,  not as persons, but as a Church, and, explicitly, because:    1. we are stained by the iniquity of the cheirothesia of 1971    2. the voiced blasphemy of 1979 remains      Let us not be entertained by the evil that has befallen the realms of our  Church.  It  is  necessary  for  us  to  pray,  to  censure  the  paranoia  of  the  newfound iconoclasts, to request  from our honorable  Hierarchy,  as  soon  as  possible,  the  cleansing  [catharsis]  from  the  realms  of  our  Church,  these  nonsensical  iconoclasts  and  those  who  are  likeminded  unto  them,  [to  request]  their  condemnation,  regardless  of  how  high  their  position  is, because these [people] are led astray from the truth, and we must declare  in  a  stentorian  manner,  that  whether  alone  or  with  many  others,  we  will  champion  the  saving  truth,  faithful  to  what  we  have  been  taught,  what  we  have  learned  and  what  we  have  received,  adding  nothing  and  subtracting  nothing,  whatever  the  Catholic  Church  contains  and  upholds  undiminished  and uninnovated.      Do not fall, brethren. A winter [suffering] has befallen our Church. The  Lord our God lives, so that he is among us and he is for us.      May  the  prayers  of  the  Confessors  of  our  Faith,  the  older  and  the  newer,  as  well  as  of  the  newfound  pillar  of  Orthodoxy,  ever‐memorable  Archbishop  Matthew  the  Cretan,  enlighten  us,  bring  us  to  our  senses,  and  guide all of us towards the path of salvation, which requires truth, faith and  invincible struggle.      To  those  who  do  not  correctly  receive  the  divine  voices  of  the  Holy  Teachers  of  the  Church  of  God,  and  what  has  been  fittingly  and  manifestly  explained  in  [the  Church]  by  the  grace  of  the  Holy  Spirit,  and  attempts  to  misinterpret them and rotate them, they are the curse, and the wrath is upon  their shoulders.    Farewell in the Lord, my beloved brethren,  The least among all ‐ brother and concelebrant,  Archimandrite Euthymius K. Epiphaniou
