Joint Declaration of 1971.

During the reign of Patriarch Mor Ya`qub III an attempt was made to narrow down the differences in explaining Christology between the Syriac Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church. This resulted in a joint declaration issued in Vatican on 27 October, 1971 signed by Patriarch Ya`qub and Pope Paul Vl. The text of the declaration is given here:
