Dispute with Nicephorus

In a dispute with Patriarch Nicephorus of Alexandria, Parthenius sided with the hierarchs of the Church of Sinai by granting them permission to perform religious services in Cairo when Nicephorus was visiting Moldovlachia. After Nicephorus was back in Alexandria, his protests made Parthenius revoke his permission. Still, the tensions over this issue continued between the two Churches. [1]


In the year 1641 Parthenius summoned a Synod of Jassy.[2] The purpose of this assembly was to counter certain Catholic and Protestant doctrinal errors which had infiltrated Orthodox theology and to offer a comprehensive Orthodox statement on the truth of faith.[3]
