It's neat to see some icons of more modern saints from the non-Chalcedonian tradition. I like the style there, too.


Perhaps not an icon, but I really liked this depiction of St Thomas Becket's elevation to the episcopate when I saw it at The Cloisters.

In the sense of contrast to Greek, English is a German language

Not at all, Porter. English is a true mongrel of a language, with generous helpings of Greek, and Greek via Latin, as well as influences from every language imaginable.

Of course you're not wrong. Yet here is a chart of the basic academic understanding.



Regardless, English "hell" has its cognate in all German (oops, there I go again) tongues.

While Donatists were spilling blood in the streets, St. Aurelius of Carthage received with love and leniency those who repented of their schism and hardheartedness.

I don't have any information of them spilling blood in the streets.  Can you point me towards a book with the information (or a source)?

Here's an article and a book.

Pretty much anything you can find on the Circumcellions applies. They may not have started off as Donatists nor characterized all of them but they were certainly part of the movement, utilized by its leaders when expedient against the Catholic Church and its own internal dissenters (i.e. the Maximianists).

Wow, it's so pathetic what Christians can do to one another.

Is it fair though to label the entire embodiement of Donatists as Circumcellions though as they were pretty much the small radical group?

I'd agree that would be unfair to conflate all Donatists with the Circumcellions, thought the activity of the latter was often the only news concerning Donatism which filtered out of north Africa. In the minds of many people throughout the Empire, the two were one and the same.

There were those Donatists who indeed deplored the behavior of the Circumcellions but it seems that there were many more who supported them and lauded them as saints and their dead as martyrs. Even the dissenters sometimes kept their mouths shut simply because they were all on the same side. Such was the case during the reign of the Roman general Gildo (incidentally, the brother of the failed Roman usurper Firmus, himself pro-Donatist) and the “brigand bishop” Optatus of Thamugadi who jointly tyrannized the African province for 10 years or so, if Blessed Augustine is to be believed.

Also, I wrote some more things here that might help you.  This is a recent conversation here about Hades.

 Wink

Yeah but at least they're not Catholics.

SO, Can we venerate icons of EO saints in the understanding that our Theology and Christology is indeed the same, but semantically different? I was thinking about adding an icon of St. Gregory Palamas or St. Joseph the Elder to my prayer corner, but I'm not sure if EO saints are taboo. I checked and confirmed that hesychasm is universally orthodox, so then I find no fault with those fathers. Certainly they intercede and pray for all but then there's the slight issue of the lack of communion in our churches. Do you EO have OO saints in your corners/hearts? And do any of us OO have EO saints in our corners/hearts? Most likely, but I'd like some clarification and detail. Thank you for your time.

NOTE: I don't mean an OO with an EO icon of the Theotokos. I have 2 EO icons of the Theotokos, I don't question that. I mean specifically orthodox saints after Chalcedon, that are not in communion with your church.

Gold lacquer/tempura eggshell paint is for icon quality.

Uh, I don't own any OO icons, but I don't see why we can't venerate each other's saints in our homes.

Where's my poll option??? Tongue

It does say "heart" as well, so first option it is. Tongue

I don't think I can name a single exclusively-OO saint to place in my heart.

The first post, as quoted, which I wrote, I think will help you.
