Holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council
Today the Church remembers the 350 holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council under the holy Patriarch Tarasius
(February 25).
The Synod of 787, the second to meet at Nicea, refuted the Iconoclast heresy during the reign of Empress Irene and her
son Constantine Porphyrogenitos.
The Council decreed that the veneration of icons was not idolatry (Exodus 20:4-5), because the honor shown to them is
not directed to the wood or paint, but passes to the prototype (the person depicted). It also upheld the possibility of depicting
Christ, Who became man and took flesh at His Incarnation. The Father, on the other hand, cannot be represented in His eternal nature, because "no man has seen God at any time" (John 1:18).
In Greek practice, the holy God-bearing Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council are commemorated on October 11
(if it is a Sunday), or on the Sunday which follows October 11. According to the Slavic MENAION, however, if the eleventh falls on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, the service is moved to the preceding Sunday.
