Chalcedon

Chalcedon. City in Asia Minor near Constantinople and venue of the fourth ecumenical council in 451. By drawing up a statement of faith, the so-called Chalcedonian definition, it attempted to end the controversy between Alexandrian and Antiochene christologies. The strong Monophysite party in the E. never accepted the definition, and until Islamic times repeated attempts were made by ‘neo-Chalcedonians’ to remove its offence without actually rescinding it. The Oriental Orthodox churches still remain ‘non-Chalcedonian’.

chalcedony

chalcedony a microcrystalline type of quartz occurring in several different forms including onyx and agate. The word comes (in late Middle English) from Latin chalcedonius (often believed to mean ‘stone of Chalcedon’, but this is doubtful), which in the Vulgate represents Greek khalkēdōn, the name (in Revelation 21:19) of the precious stone forming the third foundation of the New Jerusalem.

Chalcedon

CHALCEDON

Modern-day Kadiköy in Turkey, founded in c. 678 b.c. by the city of Megara in Bithynia across the Bosporus from Byzantium on the site of a former Phoenician trading post. It shared the fate of Byzantium, passing under the domination of Athenians, Persians, and Romans. It seems to have had a Christian bishop at the end of the 2d century, and Constantine considered establishing his capital there. The scene of the Fourth Ecumenical Council, it was made a metropolitan see without suffragans by Marcian and Pulcheria in 451. After being destroyed by the Persians in a.d. 616, it fell in 1350 to the Turks, who changed its name to Kadiköy.

Its most famous church was the basilica of St. euphemia, where the Council of chalcedon was held, and the city proper boasted of its St. George and Holy Redeemer churches as well as of six monasteries. Along the coast toward the east in Hiereia (modern Phanaraki) were the church of the Virgin, the chapel of St. Elias, and the Eutropius monastery; still farther out were the settlement of the Oak (Drys, modern Djadi-Bostan), famous for the church of the Apostles SS. Peter and Paul, where St. john chrysostom was condemned in 403, and three monasteries, including that of St. Satyrus. During the Middle Ages the nearby hills were settled by monks dependent on the monastery of St. Auxentius, which is surrounded by the ruins of Christian monasteries.

Chalcedon is the seat of a Greek Orthodox Metropolitan and a Latin titular archbishopric.
