:To which spot are you referring? In most cases in the article, it was an indeniable statement of fact - Patr. Sergius was a locum tenens for quite a while before he was, after essentially doing the job for years, elevated to patriarch. The hierarch who bestowed the tomos was the locum tenens - the patriarch having died days/weeks (can't remember) before, and some of the Greek bishops, it seems, found out about the autocephaly through where Bp Theodosius was placed in the procession. As for the spot in the ROCOR letter, well, that is an advertised POV. — edited by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 05:43, August 17, 2006 (CDT)
Fast response, Pistevo!
I meant the point in the ROCOR letter, which you described, perhaps correctly, as an "advertised" point of view. It was not clear to me at first whether this was just ROCOR's Point of View or everyone agreed it to be Locum Tenems. Maybe a parenthetical note should be added in the text.
By the way, it was enjoyable reading different parts of the article, including about refusing negotiations in the 1940's with Moscow after the convention had already voted for it, because of rumors of - a clergyman with a handheld atomic bomb :) :)
Seriously though, what are some different explanations of why the Metropolitan refused negotiations, after inviting Gregory? Just that he only wanted the negotiations as a pretext for leaving ROCOR? [[User:Rakovsky|Rakovsky]] 06:28, August 17, 2006 (CDT)
