Uncommon, but Orthodox
He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.
How about the documents relating to Justinian's sacking of southern Italy or the massacre of Latin merchants in Constantinople a few years earlier?
Wow, I've never heard that one. Trampling on Orthodox rights has consequences. At least you had the good sense not to bring up the Ukrainian church issue.
Yes, in 1182 across the Byzantine Empire there is what is called the "Massacre of the Latins." thousands of men, women, and children were murdered by cheering Greeks as they desecrated Latin churches throwing the reserved Body and Blood of the Lord in the streets. The streets of Constantinople ran with blood. The ancient bishop of the Latins in Constaninople, John, was beheaded and his head tied to the tail of a dog. Very sad indeed. But there was the vengence of God in 1204.
"vengence [sic] of God in 1204"Was God avenging something when the Latin Kingdom ended in the 1260s?
Well at least you seem grown up enough to now accept that the massacres did happen!For further Internet reading, since, judging by your level of historical expertise you never really read too many books, please see:http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Massacre_of_the_LatinsPointing out typos to hide your ignorance, and cover up the crimes of the Byzantines, is pathetic at best.
I applaud the attempts to defend Orthodox rights against Latin infringement.
I applaud the attempts to defend Orthodox Catholicity against Byzantine infringements...especially their infringements against the rights of the Oriental Patriarchates of Jerusalem, Antioch, and Alexandria! Down with pseudo imperial Byzantine GREEK patriarchates in the East!
