The Orthodox Bold and the Beautiful. This is riduculous.

Things were much worse in the 5th century. Compared to then, this is the Brady Bunch.

yes, such as iconoclast patriarch of constantinople, switching sides saying he is an icondule, then switching again to say he is an iconoclast

and then beheaded

That was a couple centuries later. And I don't recall beheading, but it would've been a nice rhetorical flourish.

yes i was not talking about 5th century, just "worse things" :)

and i am certain one was beheaded... i will find it ;)

oh here it is, but i got the story way wrong, but still, beheaded

things like this make our modern controversies sound like nothing!

If he plotted against Constantine V, he can't be that bad. Constantine V was a nasty little man.
Was that Constantine the Pooper?

Yes. The Wiki article doesn't even go into his other colorful aspects.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.
