The answer given for question #6 is a tricky one. Of the options give, St. Basil did indeed write a defense of the Holy Spirit, but St. Gregory the theologian is also listed, and while his defense was originally delivered orally (Oration 31), it probably had a larger influence through the centuries as a text than that of St. Basil. It's further trickyfied by the fact that other Fathers wrote defenses of the Holy Spirit, such as St. Ambrose and St. Gregory of Nyssa.

On question #12 we have a tricky one again. Two names provided said the "God became man that man might become god": St. Gregory and St. Athanasius both. Other saints said this as well, such as St. Irenaeus.

I failed. I got a 65%. I guess I don't know very much about Eastern Orthodoxy in particular (makes sense; I'm not EO), since the majority of the questions I missed were about EO-specific things, e.g., first bishop of North America. Oh well.

Tooting my own horn: if you go over to Fun Trivia.com, I'm the player neon000 and I wrote a bunch of quizzes about Orthodoxy. A few other people did, too.  :)

Question #1:  Which event created Christ's Church?  Answer: Pentecost.

WRONG!  This is a very common misconception.  The Church has ALWAYS been in existence.  The fulfillment of Christ's promises occurred at Pentecost but the church itself has always been. I can quote numerous fathers on that.

What day are the 12 Gospels read?  Answer:  Great Friday.

Yes, but in Parish Practice (and I think even in monastic practice; someone check me on this one) it is always done on Thursday evening though it is the Orthros for Friday morning.  It's a tricky question.

In the Sacrament of Marriage, the crowns or Stephanos placed on the heads of the couple represent what?  Answer:Glory and honor as king and queen of their own little kingdom, the home, which they rule with wisdom, justice, and integrity.  WRONG.

Or, at least, I have NEVER heard this aetiology before.  The better answer, though not the best answer is:  Holiness in coming together as one.  As the St. Stephen is particularly commemorated and hymns to the martyrs are chanted, the crowsn are the crowns of martyrdom as the bride and groom die to themselves for the sake of the spouse and for the sake of Christ.  I have never ever heard the crowns being used to indicate a ruling over a kingdom and I've been through the marriage counseling pretty recently.

Sorry for the spoilers, but I'm the kind of person who writes in to Jeopardy! when they have stuff wrong (and believe me; they do).
I seek the truth by which no man was ever harmed--Marcus Aurelius

Those who do not read  history are doomed to get their facts from Hollywood--Anonymous

What earthly joy remains untouched by grief?--St. John Damascene
