Life

Little is known of Patr. Methodius' life.

In May 1848, Patr. Methodius was a signatory, with the patriarchs of Constantinople, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, of an encyclical to the Church responding to the "Epistle to the Easterns" by Pope Pius IX. The encyclical denounced the Filioque added by Rome to the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed as a heresy, censured the papacy for missionizing among Orthodox Christians, and repudiated Ultramontanism (papal supremacy).
