She set me up. After inviting me to post on patristic Ankara, Maureen went there herself — and eclipsed Yours Truly. My hat’s off. (There’s lots of other good recent stuff at her text blog, Aliens in This World.)

You crack me up. All I did was list a few saints I got off the search engine, whereas you gave us the lowdown on tons of church history in a tiny little space!

I have to say, those Byzantine saint names sound like they should have their own comic books.

“Look, Mike! A Logothete-Platon the Great team-up issue!”

It gets even better with the Gnostics, who would probably be dreaming up Pokemon games today. Can’t you imagine it? All those archons you have to get past, passwords, and goofy-named spirits. One of my favorite passages from Irenaeus is when he just gives up the game of refuting these guys and parodies them instead.
