Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

Metropolitan of Heraclea

Neophytus V (Greek: Νεόφυτος Ε΄) was Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinoplefor a few days in 1707.[1]


Neophytus was appointed Metropolitan of Heraclea on 15 May 1689.[2]:174 The bishops and the laity[3] elected him as Patriarch of Constantinople on 20 October 1707.[2]:40 He was not confirmed however by the Ottoman Sultan, who reserved the right, as previously the Byzantine Emperor, to confirm the election. Thus in five days Neophytus was deposed and he remained Metropolitan of Heraclea until 1711, the probable year of his death.[2]:40
