This agreement addresses a major point of theology that divided Christians following the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD, leaving the Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Byzantine and Western Churches separated from one another.
This significant report on the theology of inter faith relations, produced by the Anglican Communion Network for Inter Faith Concerns (NIFCON) with a Foreward by the Archbishop of Canterbury, sets out succinctly some key themes of Anglican inter faith engagement, rooting this engagement in the Christian understanding of God as Trinity.

The Cyprus Report is the fruit of the third phase of Anglican-Orthodox international theological dialogue. It reflects the further consideration given to ecclesiological issues discussed in earlier phases and registers considerable agreement over a range of issues. It is hoped that it will “help Christians of both traditions perceive anew the work of the Triune God in giving life to His Church, and draw us closer to that unity which is His will for all the faithful”.
The Report focuses on the nature of Communion, and how unity can be sustained during times of intense disagreement. It demonstrates the foundations of Anglican identity – attention to the Bible, the vocation towards holiness, respect for local cultures, the gifts of discernment and diversity, and the development of appropriate competencies to articulate the mind of the Church. Clarifying such issues not only maintains communion, but actually enriches the sense of common life and purpose that the Communion seeks.
