Closer relationships between Old Catholics and Eastern Orthodox are blocked by the relationship of full communion which already exists between parts of Anglicanism and parts of Old Catholicism, says Eastern Orthodox Metropolitan Damaskinos of Switzerland.

"The next meeting of the Anglican-Orthodox Joint Doctrinal Discussions (AOJDD) will take place in March 1989 in Finland. Since the last meeting of the AOJDD in Dublin in 1984 the Ecumenical Patriarch has appointed Metropolitan John Zizioulas as its new Co-Chairman. In October , before the Orthodox Church met in Rhodes to discuss women's ministry and before the election of the first Anglican woman bishop, Nicola Currie interviewed the Co-Chairmen of the AOJDD, the Rt. Rev. Henry Hill [Anglican Church of Canada] and Metropolitan John Zizioulas about its future work".
Sub-title on cover: The Cyprus Agreed Statement of the International Commission for Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue 2006.
"The publication of this 'Cyprus Agreed Statement' concludes the third phase of the Anglican-Orthodox international theological dialogue. The dialogue began in 1973, when the Anglican-Orthodox Joint Doctrinal Discussions (A/OJDD) held its first meeting in Oxford. The first phase of the dialogue was concluded by the publication of the 'Moscow Agreed Statement' in 1976. The publication of the 'Dublin Agreed Statement' in 1984 brought its second phase to a conclusion. Both statements recorded a measure of agreement on a range of specific topics, while acknowledging continuing divergence on others.
The third phase of the dialogue began in 1989, when the commission was reconstituted as the International Commission for Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue (ICAOTD). Its task has been to consider the doctrine of the Church in the light of the doctrine of the Trinity, and to examine the doctrine of the ordained ministry of the Church. Particular attention has been given to the question of who may be ordained to the presbyterate and episcopate. The third phase of the dialogue has given further consideration to ecclesiological issues discussed in earlier phases, and to aspects of Trinitarian doctrine. The 'Cyprus Agreed Statement', like its two predecessors, registers considerable agreement over a range of issues, while leaving the question of the ordination of women unresolved". -- Intro.

"The years between the world wars witnessed the most concerted efforts to bridge the gap between Orthodox and Anglicans. (p. 4) .... This, then, is the story of efforts towards rapprochement by two churches and their ultimate failure to achieve formal unity or intercommunion. It is the story of idealism, altruism, political calculations, personal feuds, diplomatic posturing, and theological disputes, all of which combined both to propel and to undermine this grand ideal. .... This study thus constitutes as important chapter in the history of the ecumenical movement. The interwar period marked the high point of ecumenical hopes, hopes unrealized and followed by the near-abandonment of attempts to find theological unity and institutional unity. While many Orthodox and Anglican leaders from the inter-war period continued to work within the ecumenical movement after World War II, the new forum was the World Council of Churches ... This study attempts to explain how the modest aims and lowered expectation during this period emerged from the incredibly ambitious goals entertained between the wars. It demonstrates, in short, why the twentieth-century ecumenical movement -- especially under the aegis of the World Council of Churches -- so drastically scaled back its goals and expectations. Ultimately, however, this story tells us even more about the internal workings and struggles of the Anglican and Orthodox Churches. In essence, this is the story of two churches trying to find themselves, struggling to solve internal questions brought to light by external challenges" (p. 6-7). -- Intro.

Very brief article with photo which states that the International Commission of the Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue (ICAOTD) met from 12 to 16 October in Salisbury, England. "At this latest meeting the Commission considered matters relating to the nature and authority of episcopal ministry, and the nature of conciliarity and primacy. An essential convergence of Anglican and Orthodox views on these ecclesiological issues emerged from the discussions.
