Epistola Concilii Constantinopolitani Oecumenici Ad Theodosium Imperatorem (9 Iul. 381 A.D.) zazzle.com/…_imp_rom_theodosii_magni_poster-228539857030276046 Cf. Labbe, Concil. T. II, Col. 945-946; Migne PL, Tom. XIII, Col. 543-544. Religionis ac pietatis observantissimo, Deique amantissimo imperatori Theodosio, sanctum concilium episcoporum, qui ex diversis provinciis Constantinopoli convenerunt. (PL 13 0543B) Initio quidem nostri ad tuam pietatem scripti, gratias agimus Deo, qui tuae pietatis imperium constituit ad communem pacem Ecclesiarum, et sanae fidei confirmationem: agentes autem Deo debitas gratias, necessario quoque ea quae acta sunt in sancto concilio, ad tuam referimus pietatem; nempe quod ex quo tempore iuxta litteras tuae pietatis Constantinopoli convenimus, primum quidem mutuam inter nos concordiam renovavimus: deinde vero breves etiam pronuntiavimus definitiones, quibus et patrum, qui Nicaeae congregati fuerunt, fidem confirmavimus; et, quae adversus eam obortae sunt, perversas haereses ac pravas opiniones extrema cum exsecratione ac detestatione reprobavimus. Praeterea etiam ad recte constituendum et ordinandum statum et disciplinam Ecclesiarum, certos canones statuimus: quae omnia huic nostro scripto subiecimus. Rogamus igitur tuam clementiam, ut per litteras quoque tuae pietatis ratum habeatur concilii decretum: ut sicuti litteris, quibus nos convocasti, Ecclesiam honore prosecutus es, ita etiam finem eorum quae decreta sunt, obsignes. (0543C) Dominus autem imperium tuum in pace et iustitia stabiliat, et producat in multas aetates et generationes, atque ad terrenum imperium coelestis quoque regni gaudium et fructum adiiciat. Gratificetur Deus orbi terrarum, ut te, qui revera pietatis studiosissimus, Deique amantissimus imperator es, valentem, omnibusque praeclaris rebus florentem et excellentem videat: id quod sancti etiam ab illo precibus ac votis petunt et orant. (PL 13 0543C) Τῷ εὐσεβεστάτῳ βασιλεῖ Θεοδοσίῳ ἡ ἁγία συνόδος τῶν ἐπισκόπων τῷν ἐκ διαφόρων ἐπαρχιῶν συνελθόντων ἐν Κωνσταντινοπόλει. (0544A) Ἀρχὴ μὲν ἡμῖν τοῦ πρὸς τὴν σὴν εὐσέβειαν γράμματος, εὐχαριστία πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν τὸν ἀναδείξαντα τῆς ὑμετέρας εὐσεβείας τὲν βασιλείαν, ἐπὶ κοινῇ τῶν ἐκκλησιῶν εἰρήνῃ καὶ τῆς ὑγιοῦς πίστεως στηριγμῷ ἀποδιδόντες δὲ τῷ Θεῷ τὴν ὀφειλομένην εὐχαριστίν, ἀναγκαίως καὶ τὰ γεγενημένα κατὰ ἁγίαν συνόδον πρὸς τὴν σὴν εὐσέβειαν ἀναφέρομεν· καὶ ὅτι συνελθόντες εἰς τὴν Κωνσταντινού πόλιν κατὰ τὸ γράμμα τῆς σῆς εὐσεβείας, πρῶτον μὲν ἀνενεωσάμεθα τὴν πρὸς ἀλλήλους ὁμόνοιαν· ἔπειτα δὲ καὶ συντόμους ὅρους ἐξεφωνήσαμεν, τὴν τε τῶν πατέρων πίστιν τῶν ἐν Νικαίᾳ κυρώσαντες, καὶ τὰς κατ' αὐτῆς ἐκφυείσας αἱρέσεις ἀναθεματίσαντες. Πρὸς δὲ τούτοις, καὶ ὑπὲρ τῆς εὐταξίας τῶν ἐκκλησιῶν ῥητοὺς κανόνας ὡρίσαμεν· ἅπερ ἅπαντα τῷδε ἡμῶν τῷ γράμματι ὑπετάξαμεν. Δεόμεθα τοίνυν τῆς σῆς εὐσεβείας ἐπικυρωθῆναι τῆς συνόδου τῆς ψῆφον· ἵν' ὥσπερ τοῖς τῆς κλήσεως γράμμασι τὴν Ἐκκλησίαν τετίμηκας, οὕτω καὶ τῶν δοξάντων ἐπισφραγίσῃς τὸ τέλος. Ὁ δὲ Κύριος στηρίξῃ σου τὴν βασιλείαν ἐν εἰρήνῃ καὶ δικαιοσύνῃ, καὶ παραπέμψῃ γενεαῖς γενεῶν, καὶ προσθείῃ τῷ ἐπιγείῳ κράτει καὶ τῆς βασιλείας τῆς ἐπουρανίου τὴν ἀπόλαυσιν. Ἐῤῥωμένον σε, καὶ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς καλοῖς διαπρέποντα ὁ Θεὸς χαρίσαιτο τῇ οἰκουμένῃ εὐχαῖς τῶν ἁγίων, τὸν ὡς ἀληθῶς εὐσεβέστατον καὶ θεοφιλέστατον βασιλέα. To the most religious Emperor Theodosius, the Holy Synod of Bishops assembled in Constantinople out of different Provinces. We begin our letter to your Piety with thanks to God, who has established the empire of your Piety for the common peace of the Churches and for the support of the true Faith. And, after rendering due thanks unto God, as in duty bound we lay before your Piety the things which have been done in the Holy Synod. When, then, we had assembled in Constantinople, according to the letter of your Piety, we first of all renewed our unity of heart each with the other, and then we pronounced some concise definitions, ratifying the Faith of the Nicene Fathers, and anathematizing the heresies which have sprung up, contrary thereto. Besides these things, we also framed certain Canons for the better ordering of the Churches, all which we have subjoined to this our letter. Wherefore we beseech your Piety that the decree of the Synod may be ratified, to the end that, as you have honoured the Church by your letter of citation, so you should set your seal to the conclusion of what has been decreed. May the Lord establish your empire in peace and righteousness, and prolong it from generation to generation; and may he add unto your earthly power the fruition of the heavenly kingdom also. May God by the prayers (εὐχαῖς τῶν ἁγίων) of the Saints, show favour to the world, that you may be strong and eminent in all good things as an Emperor most truly pious and beloved of God.
