A Glimmer from the East

Orientale Lumen II—An Orthodox Account

by Patrick Henry Reardon

The ecumenical conference Orientale Lumen II, conducted at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., during June 9–12 of this year, was the second such conference named for the Apostolic Letter published by Pope John Paul II in 1995. In it he treated of the relations of the Roman papacy to the churches of the East, not only the Orthodox Church and the Byzantine Catholic branch of the Roman obedience, but also such bodies as the Copts, Armenians, and Assyrians.
