The Conversion of the Visigoths and Bulgarians Compared


  • Lynette Olson


This paper is written to bring out various themes relevant to the subject of this book. It is not the first time such a comparison has been made, for in the ninth century A.D., Pope John VIII warned the Bulgar ruler not to get his Christianity from the Greek’s, who 500 years earlier had consecrated a heretical bishop for the Visigoths.
