Orthodox Synaxis is a project of the Institute for Orthodox Unity, a pan-Orthodox organization dedicated to preserving the unity of the Orthodox Churches throughout the world.
Orthodox Synaxis was created in response to the current threat to global Orthodox unity, which is manifesting itself in a conflict between the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Patriarchate of Moscow, regarding the ecclesiastical situation in Ukraine. This website is focused on the underlying ecclesiological issues: primacy, conciliarity, autocephaly, etc., as opposed to historical and territorial claims specific to the case of Ukraine. This website will house important primary source texts, as well as relevant analysis.
The Institute for Orthodox Unity and its founders are not affiliated with either the Ecumenical Patriarchate or the Patriarchate of Moscow.
