Group Description

As of June 27, 2007 this list is closed. The archives will remain available for a period of time to allow past members of this group to retrieve anything of interest.


This "Synod list" was the first sub-list of the "Indiana List" and was originally created in the early '90s to provide a voluntary alternative venue for the public contentions already taking place between Synod members on the world-wide stage of the ORTHODOX list. These tensions are related to what has been referred to as the ROCOR / ROCA dichotomy (from Gk. dichotomia from dicha "in two" + temnein "to cut"). These unresolved issues finally cut deeply and resulted in a division between those who, as of May 4/17, 2007 have submitted to the Soviet legacy called the Moscow Patriarchate, and those who have not.

No archives are available from the Indiana days. These yahoo-groups archives go back only to 1999. Archives are available temporarily without restriction. Please download anything you want to save soon!

This is a privately moderated list. Orthodox-Synod is not and has never been an official organ of any ecclesiastical organization.

[none-the-less the Administrator of the Diocese of Chicago (MP/ROCOR) required this list be shut down as a condition for the canonical release of the moderator to the Orthodox Synod of the GOC under Metropolitan Pavlos.]
