Early Christianity in the British Isles
#1
Interesting article about Early Christianity in the British Isles. Although it's from an Orthodox website, the information is valuable. This article also mentions Eastern Christian refugees living in Rome. I never knew that there were Syrian Christians living in Rome at that time until I read this article.

Apparently it was the Syrians who brought "Agnus Dei" with them to Rome and it was unknown in that part of Christendom.

Some other other excellent resources for early British Christianity are the back issues of the now defunct Orthodox England magazine, and the books The Age of Bede and Beedes Ecclesiastical History of the English People. Beware,while Orthodox England has some very detailed and well written pieces about early British Christianity the general tone of the magazine and the priest affiliated with it is polemical and somewhat distasteful.
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God. -Saint Isaac of Syria, Directions on Spiritual Training


"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon
