Q&A

How do we counter the charge that the addition of "filioque" was an illicit alteration of the Creed?

Question:

Some Eastern Orthodox claim that the Catholic Church <br /> is under anathema because it added the word filioque(&quot;and the Son&quot;) to the Nicene Creed after the declaration that the Spirit proceeds from the Father. This was illicit, they say, because the Council of Ephesus condemned anyone who composes a new creed. How should we reply?
