Abstract The subject of the article is one of the episode of ecclesiastical struggle for Bulgarybetween Rome and Constantinople in the 60 of the 9thcentury. The author analyzes the Answersof Pope Nicholas the I, particulary answer 92, where the Pope divides all the patriarchates as«true», that is founded by St. Peter (Rome, Alexandria, Antiochia) and false (Constantinople,Jerusalem). This theory goes back to Innocent the I and Leo the Great, who opposed the famous 28 rule of Chalcedon. Pope Nicholas the I tried to use this theory both for the struggle againstConstantinople and for domination over Bulgary. This policy eventually failed, for the legatsof the Pope had to accept the second place of Constantinople in 869 and Bulgary escaped fromthe Church jurisdiction of the Rome. Reasons of Rome’s defeat are considered in archaic andstubborn canonic consciousness.
