I am involved in a discussion concerning the Council of Chalcedon and Canon 28. Per Michael Whelton's book, "Popes and Patriarchs",  he states," Canon 28 was formally received into the canonical collection of the Eastern Church at the Council in Trullo in 690. It was finally accepted in the Western Church in 1274 at the Second Council of Lyons."

 

 

The other party in this discussion disputes that the Western Church or Rome ever accepted Canon 28. Further research on my part has drawn a complete blank and there is no mention of Canon 28 at the Second Council of Lyons.

 

Can anyone set the record straight?

Rome did accept it even before that Council when they took over constantinople in 1204 and installed a Latin patriarch. Tne Council of trullo only reaffirmed what canon 28 already bestowed. In fact both East and West accepted it regardless of what any church had to say because it was recieved into the secular law of the empire.
If you study Justinians Code it is enshrined in the novelas (laws arranged under justinian)

It wasn't in the council of Lyons in 1274. It was in the 4th Lateran council of 1215. Its found in Canon 5 of that Council, the important aspect is that the canon clearly states that its simply reaffirming the 'ancient priveleges'. Meaning they always viewed Constantinople as holding the 2nd place in the rankings.

Of course in the canon Rome has an arrogant view of itself, which they can't prove by those same 'ancient priveleges' they spoke of.
