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

Then what about the ones who become Roman Catholic?

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

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."
