Church history for dummies

Posted: December 7, 2009 in Commentary, Music, Other people's writing

Here is a link to a good post by Men’s Rights Activist Novaseeker, who as it happens is an Eastern Orthodox Christian.

Here’s some music to fire up on youtube to listen to while you read it.

    Thanks, Singlextianman, for your kind words.

    Also, a nice piece from YouTube! That one reflects more of a “Byzantine” style of chanting that you would hear in a Greek Orthodox church or perhaps even an Antiochian Orthodox one. This one is the kind that we sing in the churches I attend, which are more of the Slavic tradition (in melody … the words are chanted in English, too):

    Hey, my pleasure. This is neither here nor there, but one of the coolest Christian women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting (alas; she did not agree to go out with me) was Assyrian Orthodox. Just a lay believer but very well versed in Church history; and evidently by her composure and the fragrance of her life a disciple of Him. Of late I have tried to read The Life of St. Anthony ; but feel I need to take it in small bites.
