Orthodox Outlet for Dogmatic Enquiries



Protestantism began as a movement to reform the Western Christian church in the 16th century, resulting in the Protestant Reformation, which severed the reformed churches from the Papal Church. The declared aim of the original reformers was to restore the Christian faith as it had been at its beginning, while keeping what they thought valuable from Latin tradition that had developed during the intervening centuries.

In this section we will analyze the theological errors of Protestantism, and what the Orthodox Catholic Church teaches about them. Because of the many Protestant denominations (about 30.000) some studies are valid for all Protestants, but others are written, especially for a specific protestant denomination.
