    On the topic of the Paulicians:

    I’ve been reading J.A. Wylie’s “History of Protestantism,” written in the 19th century. He devotes a chapter to the Paulicians, seeking to refute the charge that they were Manichaeans and attempting to show their doctrinal similarity to later Protestantism. I especially found the story of Constantine-Silvanus of Samosata interesting. He lived just following the Arab advance into Syria and was stoned for heresy:

    I have been following this site for a while now, and it seems to me that this site has itself become a pseudo Byzantine empire, constantly trying to revive the HIstory of Rome Podcast but more successfully than Justinian ever did. Its become interesting to see the differences between the two writers of the narratives play out and much more interesting seeing how the Narratives compare. Good luck on continuing this all the way till the Turks come down.

    – Your fan, CPG
