Abstract:

Eastern and Western Christianity have slightly different emphases, but these should be seen as complementary, not as opposed. For example, the East emphasizes the "mysteric" nature of faith and the symbolism of the liturgy and sacraments. But such elements do exist in the West, and very often are traceable to sources in the East. The dogmatic formulations of the Trinity and of the dual nature of Christ were of Eastern origin. St. John Chrysostom and St. Augustine, despite their differences, were both interpreters of St. Paul. The re-union of Greek and Latin Christianity will not then come about by the subservience of one to the other, but by the recognition that we are brothers sharing the same Mystery, and therefore must come together in one fold under the successor of him to whom Christ said, "Thou are Petros, and upon this petra I will build my Church."
