 Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann: The Historical Background of the Council [Chalcedon]
ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN, B.D. From the purely historical point of view the Council of Chalcedon was the beginning of a crisis in the life of the Church.
The reason of this double meaning of Chalcedon, of its success as well as of its historical failure, is to be found in that central event of the whole history of the Church, and especially the history of the Eastern Church — its alliance with the Roman Empire, the true kernel and root of "Byzantinism."
Chalcedon was the critical point, the climax of that long and tragic process.

Severus of Antioch's Objection to the Councel of Chalcedon

Severus’ objection to Chalcedon is not derived from a ‘monophysite’; point of view: it comes from a genuine fear that the Council did not affirm the unity of Christ adequately, and that it therefore violated the faith of the Church.

 Chalcedon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chalcedon (Χαλκηδών, sometimes transliterated as Chalkedon; see also list of traditional Greek place names) was an ancient maritime town of Bithynia, in Asia Minor, almost directly opposite Byzantium, south of Scutari (modern Üsküdar).
In its early history it shared the fortunes of Byzantium, was taken by the satrap Otanes, vacillated long between the Lacedaemonian and the Athenian interests, and was at last bequeathed to the Roman Republic by Attalus III of Pergamum (133 BC).
It was partly destroyed by Mithradates, but recovered during the Empire, and in 361 AD it was the location of the Chalcedon tribunal, where Julian the apostate brought his enemies to trial.

 St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary - Chalcedon Canon 28: Yesterday and Today
As Chalcedon canon 28 clearly specified, “the metropolitans – and they alone – of the dioceses of Pontus, Asia and Thrace…shall be ordained by the most holy throne of the most holy Church of Constantinople.” Similar distinctions were made with regard to the presbeia of other major sees.
Quite simply, at the time of Chalcedon the prerogatives or presbeia of major sees still were not uniform or evenly distributed, and neither were the bases for these various prerogatives clearly defined.
But as the example of Chalcedon itself indicates, both in its dogmatic decree and in its canon 28, sometimes it was necessary not just to safeguard the tradition but also, in view of changing circumstances, to explain it and give it contemporary application.

Chalcedon is sometimes referred to as the "Fourth Ecumenical Council" by Orthodox and Roman Catholic historians, although was not universally acknowledged by ancient Christendom.
To the vast majority of Egyptians, Chalcedon was the "council of schism." In contrast, Chalcedon was a bastion of Christian Orthodoxy for the prelates loyal to the Byzantine Empire and its government and the pope of Rome in the west.
It appears that the schism heralded by Chalcedon and imperial and papal political and theological agendas was a terrible mistake and both sides were in fact "Orthodox" in their Christology.
