The Participation of the Bishops from the Macedonian Provinces at the Fifth Ecumenical Council


The sixth century, seen through the prism of Ecclesiastical history, was a period filled with debates of both theological and dogmatic nature. These debates later on developed into new religious divisions, which resulted in the convening of the Fifth Ecumenical Council in 553. The convening of this Council was meant to put an end to these debate and to pave the way for establishment of Church unity. The background of these theological disputes were the political and religious conflicts between Rome and Constantinople. The participation of the bishops of the Macedonian Provinces is the main subject of interest in this research.

Key words: bishops, province of Macedonia, Fifth Ecumenical Council
