46 The Boundaries of Orthodoxy: Faith Chapter 3 The Boundaries of Orthodoxy: Order When Christians met in a Council, the Holy Spirit was expected to influence a prayerful ‘forming of the common mind’. It was also recognized that the Holy Spirit might be saying something to the Church through an individual. Nevertheless, individuals who believe themselves to be personally led by the Holy Spirit have been a source of concern to the organized Church from the beginning when they question whether it is God’s will that they should be confined within the formal bounds of the community or required to conform to its rules.

The fact that he was of the same divine ‘substance’ 32 The Boundaries of Orthodoxy: Faith (consubstantiality) and with the Father and was co-eternal with him was as important to emphasize as it was for Christ, for the philosophers’ ‘hierarchy’ was always hovering. It was the ‘educated man’s’ preference. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord and giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the prophets.

This was a strong version of the ancient idea that the leaders of the community would meet from time to time to discuss questions arising about the definition of the faith. In the West it was increasingly understood that the Pope occupied a special place in the teaching structure; Papal infallibility was gradually accepted, although it did not receive formal definition until 1870. Then the First Vatican Council decreed that papal pronouncements made ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals were infallible, even if no Council approved them.
