Abstract

In the history of the Church councils the authority of the so-called Church Fathers plays always a decisive role. Their works are quoted as a distinctive criterion to define the dogma. But what if these quotations would be forged? Providing examples from the byzantine Iconoclasm of 8th Century until the lefebvrian movement of 20th, this paper focuses on textual forgeries as unchanging weapons of counciliar debates. A long history from parchment to internet, who reveals that the forger does not change his aims, but updates his means.
