I know I may be totally wrong here, but don't most Orthodox believe this man to be a heretic? Isn't this the same guy who claimed to be an Apostle, et cetera....?--JosephSuaiden 06:10, September 11, 2008 (UTC)

I was actually going to raise the same issue, but I couldn't find my documentation on the matter. I remember similar objections. --Willibrord 09:29, September 11, 2008 (UTC)
Read the sections in the article on Criticism and Legacy. While controversial to be sure, he was not actually excommunicated by the way, and in any event, he was the center of a very important religious phenomenon that several Orthodox and non-Orthodox have written about, and who should be studied or chronicled in order to clear up just such questions. It is also a matter of the history of the Greek church in the 19th century!
