Orthodoxy, Feast of
Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature
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.
