    Which church kept the same patriarchate in Alexandria after Chalcedon?

    FROM WIKIPEDIA: Following Dioscorus's deposition and exile, an Alexandrian priest named Proterius was appointed Patriarch in his stead, with the approval of the emperor. There was no public opposition to Proterius. Nonetheless, some Christians continued to support Dioscorus in secret...

    Recommendations to learn Spanish and advance from beginner to semi-fluent?

    Gotta find your own program that works for you. I usually go through 150 cards a day, 10 minutes of listening to authentic material, and maybe read 5 pages out of a book (right now reading a biography on the Taiwanese singer Deng Lijun). Maybe about 35 minutes of practice a day spread...

    Recommendations to learn Spanish and advance from beginner to semi-fluent?

    Yeah, I'll agree with this. Moved back to the States a few months ago and while here as well as when living in China I usually reviewed 150 words a day; usually takes 10-15 minutes.

    Recommendations to learn Spanish and advance from beginner to semi-fluent?

    Can't speak for Spanish but what I used for learning Chinese Spaced repetition w/ flashcards: A popular app is Anki; there are likely many free Spanish vocabulary lists available on the website you can upload to your phone. GLOSS from DLIFLC is a free resource with vocabulary lists and...

    Board votes to relocate St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary; Location to be determined

    Of the three islands I visited while living there, the Big Island was my favorite. Was attached to Pearl Harbor Hickam's Honors and Ceremonies division for a few months while stationed out there and had the chance to fly to the Big Island a few times for funeral services. The climate was a bit...

    Board votes to relocate St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary; Location to be determined

    Having lived in Hawaii (Oahu) for 4.5 years, I don't think this is a good idea. The cost of living is no joke. Rent is quite expensive for what you pay for and the majority of housing doesn't have air conditioning (and yes, you do need it); groceries are insanely expensive (commissary closed...

    Identity and background of Eastern Catholics

    Wow, quite a difference between the interior of this church and what I've seen in many Ethiopian Orthodox churches.

    Oriental Orthodox and Roman Catholic Dialogue

    I'd say I agree. The OO community has a wider array of liturgical practices allowed while maintaining full-communion with sister churches. Following a number of joint statements on a shared Christology, to me the biggest issue between OO-RC and EO-RC remains the role of the papacy/the doctrine...

    Perhaps an oversimplification (and coming from a "pan-Orthodox" website so there may be some bias): https://theorthodoxchurch.info/blog/news/wp-content/uploads/PDF-HERE.pdf Preview quote added. --Ainnir

    有人说中文?

    Cool. Seems the Russian church is doing what it can within mainland China to spread Orthodoxy. Will see if I can find some hard copies of these books to expand my vocabulary. A few months ago visited the Mogao Caves--which are covered with Buddhist murals--in Dunhuang, Gansu province and...

    "Midnight Mass" on Netflix

    I enjoyed the series and didn't find it offensive. I did have to watch some videos on YouTube afterwards to clear up some things (specifically surrounding the "monster": was he an angel, demon, or vampire?). I discovered the director has some additional shows also on Netflix. Marathoned...
