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.

Sisinnius II of Constantinople

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sisinnius II became Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in 996 and held the post until his death in 999.

He was extremely well educated and had been honoured with the office of magistros. His patriarchate was characterised by the facing of flock issues, issues about wedding and divorce, but also by issues about the extension of the Bishop of Constantinople.

Sergius II
