I was wondering how many pre-protestant (pre Great Schism) schismatics groups are there still practicing? (For arguments sake this does not count the OO, EO or RC but rather churches like the nestorian churches)

Other than the Assyrian Church of the East, there arent any. There are however groups which have joined the Eastern Catholics over the centuries. The Chaldean catholics are the Assyrian counterparts. And the Maronites were originally monotheletes who joined Rome around the 15th century.

Sorry, we don't use the U-word around here.

There is another Orthodox website where a fairly complete list of groups that are Orthodox, or claim to be but aren't, can be viewed:

http://aggreen.net/orth_links/orthlink.html

I found it rather helpful in trying to discern who's where today.

Figuring out who is truly schismatic and who isn't isn't this easily ascertained.  Many of the groups on that list are indeed vagante groups, but there are also some on there, like my Synod (the Hellenic Orthodox Traditionalist Church of America), who shouldn't be on there.  Anyone who knows anything of our history will easily be able to see what we are not like some of those other groups on that list.  Our reposed bishop in America, Met. Petros, was ordained by ROCOR and was close friends with Abp. Averky of ROCOR, and had close relations with ROCOR for his whole life for the most part.  Also, Met. Laurus and our current bishop, Met. Pavlos, are close friends.  I would hardly compare my Synod to some of the other Synods on there who just started out of nowhere.  So you actually have to look at the background of some of the churches on that list to figure out whether they are truly vagante or not.

I don't want to start a whole debate on the canonicity of my Synod, nor am I going to get into one, and I don't think that is the point of this thread anyways, but I think that people should at least learn to take a more objective look at some groups on that list.  I don't think that figuring out who is and isn't Orthodox can be done so easily with some sort of checklist.

Sorry I know this issue might sound polemical but I am not here to argue the canonicity of any church or group but rather find any older still continuing churches like the nestorians.

There might be some Bogomils in Bulgaria. Grin

Are you making a Nazi pun, or are you for real? I thought Arians died out centuries ago. Of course, their influence hasn't, technically they exist in many different denominational forms.

No I am not making any puns.  The barbarians in northern Europe in the 4th and 5th centuries were Arians.  I have heard that there are some that are still around in Germany.

Wow, I guess Germany would be the place that would have them since original Arians were mostly Barbarians.

Here's their website:
http://www.holy-catholic.org/arian/arian-home.html

They claim Constantine was an Arian and that he was baptized by an Arian bishop.

This is from "their" website:

Oh great, a "virtual diocese". You virtually don't have to go to Church, you virtually don't have to meet other human beings, you virtually don't have to break bread with anyone.....
My guess is this "church" is one person with too much time on their hands.

By Eusebius of Nicomedia so they're right with that.
