The controversy over Ecumenism in the Orthodox Church, broiling throughout the twentieth century, has escalated since last year’s council on the island of Crete, which gathered ten of the fifteen Local Orthodox Churches and produced a series of documents that many throughout the Orthodox world have criticized to one degree or another. Amid a growing number of clergy and monasteries choosing to cease commemorating their bishops, another Greek monastery has taken a further step.

As Orthodox Ethos reports, with reference to Orthodoxia Online, abbot of the Holy Monastery of the Life-Giving Spring in Paros, Greece Archimandrite Chrysostomos has formally submitted to the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church a detailed accusation of heresy against His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. In his letter the abbot has asked the Holy Synod to recognize as contrary to the Orthodox faith and condemn a series of twelve heterodox teachings from Constantinople outlined in the letter. The letter refers several times to ecumenical actions with and overtures towards the Roman Catholic confession.
