Noticed that it's been quiet on this board for a while, so I propose to put forward a few ideas and opinions for discussion. Seems to me that thanks largely to the Romans, (remember they came to visit Greece around 150 BC and never went home), that Hellenic peoples adopted Christianity. I want to re-iterate this: Greeks adopted Christianity under a ROMAN emperor. OK, Constantine was well Hellenised, but no Greek. In any case, I find in remarkable and wonderful that today in Greece, some of the ancient spirit remains. Something a little more noble than cunning Romans could stamp out and a semetic trouble-making cult (Christianity) could wipe out. Eviva ALL GREEKS - believe what you want to believe. To be Greek is not necessarity to be Greek Orthodox. 'Greek' is an idea, a concept that still powers the entire west.
