This learn historicizes the formation of the Syrian Orthodox Church. Menze exhibits that the 6th century separation of the Syrian Orthodox Christians from Western Christianity came about as a result of divergent political and ecclesiastical pursuits of bishops and emperors. Roman emperors proved to be not able to carry the papacy within the West, the later Greek Orthodox and the Syrian Christians within the East jointly in a single trust. the outcome was once (religious) violence, discrimination and persecution of the Syrian Christians which pressured them to set up an autonomous church.

Example text

The crowd compared the new emperor to Marcian, who had brought about the Council of Chalcedon, and thereby clearly positioned Justin in opposition to Amantius. 83 When the patriarch John and other clergy entered the church for the usual service on 15 July, they were greeted by an excited and enraged congregation. 85 The crowd first forced John and the clergy to proclaim Chalcedon and anathematize Severus. The patriarch, however, insisted on consulting the emperor first before holding a commemoration service for the fathers of Chalcedon.

Cameron, ‘The House of Anastasius’, GBRS 19 (1978), 259–76; P. Peeters, ‘Hypatius et Vitalien. Autour de la succession de l'empereur Anastase’, Annuaire de l'institut de philologie et d'histoire orientales et slaves 10 (1950), 5–51; and G.

Already Vasiliev believed that Vitalian made Justinian write the second letter. 148 See literature in Uthemann, ‘Kaiser Justinian als Kirchenpolitiker und Theologe’. 149 Noethlich, ‘Justinian’, 674, emphasizes that nothing is known about Justinian's education; but cf. for example Schwartz, ‘Zur Kirchenpolitik Justinians’, 33, and Vasiliev, Justin the First , 135.
