ANATHEMA – (Gr. suspended) A pronouncement by which the Church declares a person out of her communion, particularly because of the denial of the truths of faith. On the Sunday of Orthodoxy (first Sunday in Lent) in the Orthodox cathedrals during the Pontifiical service the anathema is proclaimed upon all heretics and apostates (GAL. 1:9, I COR. 16:22).
