'''Orthodox (ορθοδόξος)''' in Greek means correct both in worship and belief.

In fact, the names of the Orthodox Church in Greek, Russian, etc. reflects and reinforces more the ''doxa'' "etymology". Thus '''Orthodox''', in the context of a Chalcedonean article, should be understood more as '''correct in worship''' and the claim ''correct in belief'' should be regarded as implicit.

Orthodox

Orthodox (ορθοδόξος) in Greek means correct both in worship and belief. It is derived from the combination of όρθος/orthos (correct, straight, without deviation) and δόξα/doxa (glory or worship) or δοκείν/dokein (to teach). In fact, the names of the Orthodox Church in Greek, Russian, etc. reflects and reinforces more the doxa "etymology". Thus Orthodox, in the context of a Chalcedonean article, should be understood more as correct in worship and the claim correct in belief should be regarded as implicit.

  • "Adjective" - "(Christianity) adhering to the rites of the (Chalcedonean) Orthodox Church."
