< Actually, "Syrian Orthodox" is a proper name. My understanding is that the word "orthodox" does not imply communion with the Ecumenical Patriarch in this instance. Many of the so-called "ancient churches of the east" use the words "orthodox" and "catholic" in their full names, even though they have been completely autonomous since the first century. >

You're right, Norm. Had I taken the time to read the attached link I would have caught the error. This is from the first paragraph in the INTRODUCTION:

"The church had neither added anything to it nor taken away anything from it. It has always held the faith defined by the Three Universal Synods of Nicea, Constantinople, and Ephesus in the 4th and 5th Century."

The Syrian Orthodox Church is monophysite with possible Nestorian influences. I'll check into it next week. I'm embarrassed. First a confusion of Ruth and Esther and now this. I'm losing it, big time. Accuracy in homework, Rick. Tighten it up.
