Orthodoxy, Feast of

Orthodoxy, Feast of The Council of Constantinople, held under Photius, in the year 879, and reckoned by the Greeks as the eighth general council, fortified image- worship by new and firm decisions, approving and renewing all the decrees of the Nicene Council. The Greeks, a superstitious people, and controlled by monks, regarded this as so great a blessing conferred on them by heaven that they resolved to consecrate an anniversary in remembrance of it, which they called the Feast of Orthodoxy.
