Sunday of Orthodoxy The dominant theme of the First Sunday of Great Lent Sunday of Orthodoxy since 843 has been that of the Victory of the Icons, when the Iconoclastic Controversy, which had raged on and off since 726, was finally laid to rest, and Icons and their veneration were restored and Commemorated as the "Triumph of Orthodoxy." The Seventh Ecumenical Council - convened in Nicaea in 787 by Empress Irene at the request of Tarasios, Patriarch of Constantinople and attended by 367 Bishops - dealt predominantly with the Controversy regarding Icons and their significance in Orthodox worship. Almost a century before, the Iconoclastic Controversy had once more shaken the foundations of both Church and State of the Byzantine Empire. Excessive religious respect and the ascribed Miracles to Icons by some members of society, approached the point of worship ( which is strictly due only to God) and idolatry. This instigated excesses at the other extreme - causing Icons to be completely removed from the Liturgical Life of the Church by the Iconoclasts, while the Iconophiles, firmly believed that Icons significantly preserved the Doctrinal Teachings of Christ and His Holy Church as they considered Icons to be mankinds inspired and dynamic expression of the Divine through art and beauty. The Council the Doctrine whereby Holy Icons should be venerated and treated with respect for those depicted but certainly not worshipped as worship was exclusively ascribed to Almighty God alone. The Decree of the Seventh Ecumenical Council concerning the restoration of Holy Icons to Orthodox veneration added an important clause which still stands at the foundation of the rationale for using and venerating Icons in the Orthodox Church to this very day: "We define that the Holy Icons, whether in colour, mosaic, or some other material, should be exhibited in the Holy Churches of God, on the Sacred Vessels and Liturgical Vestments, on the walls, furnishings, and in houses and along the roads - namely the icons of our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ, that of our Lady Theotokos, those of the Venerable Angels and those of all Saintly people. Whenever these representations are contemplated, they will cause those who look at them to Commemorate and Love their Prototype. We define also that they should be kissed and that they are an object of veneration and honour (timitiki proskynisis), but not of real worship (latreia), which is reserved for Him Who is the subject of our Faith and which is proper for the Divine Nature. The veneration accorded to an Icon is in effect transmitted to the Prototype; those who venerate the Icon, venerates in it the Reality for which it stands. An Endemousa (Regional) Synod was called in Constantinople in 843 under the auspices of Empress Theodora. The Veneration of Icons was solemnly proclaimed at the Hagia Sophia Cathedral. The Empress, her son, Michael III, Patriarch Methodios, and Monks and Clergy went in procession and restored the Icons in their rightful places. The day was called "Triumph of Orthodoxy." Since that time, this Event is Commemorated yearly with a special Service on the first Sunday of Lent, the "Sunday of Orthodoxy". Orthodox Teaching about Icons, as defined at the Seventh Ecumenical Council of 787, is embodied in the texts sung on this Sunday. 2. T ONE 1
