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.

Neophytus I of Constantinople

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neophytos I (Greek: Νεόφυτος Α') was a 12th-century clergyman who served as Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in 1153. Neophytos was a monk at the Monastery of Theotokos the Benefactor before being elevated to the Patriarchal throne after the death in office of his predecessor. His short reign as Patriarch of Constantinople—of about a year—was uneventful, and he retired to become an ascetic.[1] His short reign was during the rule of Byzantine emperor Manuel I Comnenus.
