What do you call a Protestant who learns Church History?  An Orthodox Catechumen.

Then what about the ones who become Roman Catholic?

“Wherefore, then, death approaches, gulps down the bait of the body, and is pierced by the hook of the divinity. Then, having tasted of the sinless and life-giving body, it is destroyed and gives up all those whom it had swallowed down of old." - St. John of Damascus

Interesting. I was expecting more of a no-true-scotsman argument, say, "they didn't really learn Church history".

See, I got it wrong as well. I thought the correct answer was "agnostic"  ;D
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

Thank y'all for these. I am back from Sicily and shall peruse them over the coming days.

Upon your return will you agree to answer some of my questions that I've posted in the original post?

It's a longish thread. You'd better ask the questions again, or at least point me to the ones you have in mind; and you must accept that my answer may be, "I don't know."
