"The Fifth World Conference on Faith and Order at Santiago de Compostela in August 1993 took place in a place of pilgrimage. ... The route for the next stage of the journey was planned by the Standing Commission at Cret-Berard in 1994. Two major study projects on ecclesiology, and on ecumenical hermeneutics were initiated there. ... The meeting of the Standing Commission at Aleppo in January 1995 discussed the reports of these projects as they had been developed throughout 1994. These minutes include the texts as they have been developed and the main points of the discussion". -- Preface.
