A Scriptural Refutation of the Pope’s Primacy
This refutation by the Greek author Apostolos Makrakis on the Pope's claim to Papal Primacy/Supremacy was written in a series of many articles published in the Athens newspaper entitled "The Logos" in the 1870s, and is translated here into English. Makrakis composed this logical disproof of the Papal claim to supremacy and infallibility in the Church as a whole. Makrakis uses various key scriptures, dogmas from the Seven Ecumenical Councils and the 1583 AD 'Sigillion' by Patriarch Jeremiah to refute a series of provoking articles in another Roman Catholic newspaper published in Syros called the "Orient." These articles were produced by a group of missionaries under the auspices of the pope in Hermoupolis (Syros) for the purposes of spreading Roman Catholicism in that part of the world.
