20-03-2016: At the Holy Cathedral of St George: The Sunday of Orthodoxy or the Triumph of Orthodoxy is celebrated on the first Sunday of Great Lent of the Eastern Orthodox Church. The Feast is kept in memory of the final defeat of Iconoclasm and the restoration of the icons to the churches.[1]
Despite the teaching about icons defined at the Seventh Ecumenical Council in 787, the Iconoclasts began to trouble the Church again. After the death of the last Iconoclast emperor, Theophilos, his young son Michael III, with his mother the regent Theodora, and Patriarch Methodios, summoned the Synod of Constantinople in 843 to bring peace to the Church. At the end of the first session, all made a triumphal procession from the Church of Blachernae to Hagia Sophia, restoring the icons to the church.
