Saint Pontius Pilate
« on: June 09, 2011, 03:56:11 AM »
I'm curious as to what the Ethiopian traditions are surrounding how he became a saint, is it all based on the Acts of Pilate? Is he venerated in other OO Churches? Also, do any EOs know why only his wife, St. Claudia is venerated in the EO?

Oops! Should have done a search. Looks like this has been done to death here. I'll read the other threads. Sorry!
