Das akakianische Schisma: Liberatus, Breviarium 15-18

Hanns Christof Brennecke
From the journal


The analysis of Breviarium 15-18 shows the pro-chalcedonian, Western position of Liberatus. He stresses the impact of the bishop of Rome: Orthodoxy seems to mean obedience towards Rome. Liberatus expects an active role of the emperors in theological or ecclesiastical debates, so this cannot be regarded as a typically Eastern position. He reduces the theology of the debate to a couple of sentences and the Henotikon. The exact meaning of the Henotikon that is offered in a Latin version remains, however, unclear. Liberatus uses own sources that differ considerably from Ps.Zacharias Rhetor.
