Byzantium
  • RIP Archbishop Dmitri, the retired OCA (Russian) archbishop of the South. Вечная память: may his memory be eternal. Interesting story. Before the convert boomlet he read his way in from the Baptists.
  • Besides my quick-shot definition of Orthodoxy as a communion of conservative ethnic apostolic churches surprisingly very little to do with each other you can add traditional liturgy, ethnic-grandma (yiayia) folk religion and, long true in human history, the uncatechised masses (lots of Bad Orthodox who may hate or not care about the church but aren’t stupidly trying to change the church either), and a few obnoxious converts online.
