The '''Fifth Ecumenical Council''' took place in Constantinople in 553 AD, and is also known as the '''Second Council of Constantinople.'''
The fifth of the seven [[Ecumenical Councils]] dealt with the following:
*Reinterpreting the Chalcedonian decrees from an Alexandrian point of view
*Explaining more constructively the two natures of Christ and how they form a single Person
Among the [http://www.comparativereligion.com/anathemas.html anathemas] made by the Council were those against parts of the teaching of [[Origen]].
The '''Holy Fathers of the Fifth Ecumenical Council''' are commemorated on [[July 25]] and also on the 9th Sunday after [[Pentecost]] the [[Sunday of the Fathers of the First Six Councils]].
