Would anyone elucidate the issue of when the term in question actually first appeared (or to be found) within the Christian context.[[User:Muscovite99|Max]] 09:51, February 2, 2008 (PST)
== 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."
