"Down with Paul!" - Gnostic slandering against Paulicians


*   *   *

From Wikipedia source:

"...... The founder of the sect is said to have been an Armenian by the name of Constantine,[6] who hailed from Mananalis, a community near Paytakaran. He studied the Gospels and Epistles, combined dualistic and Christian doctrines, and, upon the basis of the former, vigorously opposed the formalism of the church.....(....).....in the year 660 [ Constantine ] received a deacon in his house, who put in his hands a precious and rare treasure in those days before the invention of the printing press: a New Testament. Upon reading the same he came to know about the whole salvation in Christ; and upon sharing said good news with others, he formed a group of sincere believers; later on, of preachers ... who became known as Paulicians ..."
Regarding himself as called to restore the pure Christianity of Paul (of Tarsus), he adopted the name Silvanus (one of Paul's disciples) and about the year 660 founded his first congregation at Kibossa in Armenia. Twenty-seven years afterwards he was arrested by the Imperial authorities, tried for heresy and stoned to death.[8] Simeon, the court official who executed the order, was himself converted and adopting the name Titus became Constantine’s successor. He was burned to death (the punishment pronounced upon the Manichaeans) in 690.[8]
Baanes was supplanted by Sergius-Tychicus in 801, who was very active for thirty-four years. His activity was the occasion of renewed persecutions on the part of Leo the Armenian. Obliged to flee, Sergius and his followers settled at Argaun, in that part of Armenia which was under the control of the Saracens. At the death of Sergius, the control of the sect was divided between several leaders. The Empress Theodora, as regent to her son Michael III, instituted a thoroughgoing persecution against the Paulicians throughout Asia Minor,[10] in which a hundred thousand Paulicians in Byzantine Armenia are said to have lost their lives and all of their property and lands were confiscated by the State.[11]
Paulicians under their new leader Karbeas fled to new areas. They built two cities, Amara and Tephrike (modern Divriği). By 844, at the height of its power, the Paulicians established a State of the Paulicians[12][13] at Tephrike. In 856 Karbeas and his people took refuge with the Arabs in the territory around Tephrike and joined forces with Umar al-Aqta, emir of Melitene (who reigned 835-863).[14] Karbeas was killed in 863 in Michael III's campaign against the Paulicians, and was possibly with Umar at Malakopea before the battle of Lalakaon.
His successor, Chrysocheres, devastated many cities; in 867 he advanced as far as Ephesus, and took many priests as prisoners.[15][16] In 868 the Emperor Basil I dispatched Petrus Siculus to arrange for their exchange. His sojourn of nine months among the Paulicians gave him an opportunity to collect many facts, which he preserved in his History of the empty and vain heresy of the Manichæans, otherwise called Paulicians. The propositions of peace were not accepted, the war was renewed, and Chrysocheres was killed at Bathys Ryax. The power of the Paulicians was broken. Meanwhile other Paulicians, sectarians but not rebels, lived in communities throughout the empire. Constantine V had already transferred large numbers of them to Thrace.[17] According Theophanes, the Paulicians of Armenia were moved to Thrace, in 747, in order to strengthen the Bulgarian frontier with a reliable population.[18]

Catholicism, both Byzantine as well Roman, are really a bloody stuff coming straight out of Hell.  Do you perceive the smell of this  Catholic persecution against the Paulicians in the Shoebat's crusade?....

Guilty by association - Joachim of Fiore circa 2014 (pt 10)

.......Well, now you have your "alliance" between the "heretic" and the Islam. It was only the cruelty and wickedness of the Catholicism to push persecuted Christians to find shelter even among Muslims. Then Gioacchino Fiore, a scribe of the Great Pharisee nested in Vatican ("pope") did the literary dirty job in to slander those Christians, haunted, tortured, assassinated by the Catholic Army of Hell.
But we have more interesting things to discover about and around the persecution of Paulicians. Similarly as Albigenses, Cathars, Vaudoises, etc. who were slandered yesterday as well today by the cultural CIA (Catholics In Action, both with a knife in their hand as well with a keyboard of a computer), presenting them as "Arian", "Manichean", "Zoroastrian" and only-Satan-knows which else particular gnostic perversion,  so also it happened and happens for the Paulicians. 

Petrus Siculus or Peter Sikeliotes (Greek: Πέτρος Σικελιώτης) was either a monk or a learned nobleman, who in 870 was sent as a legate from the Byzantine emperor Basil I to the Paulician leader Chrysocheir, negotiating for an exchange of prisoners. He stayed in the Paulician city of Tephrike/Tibrica, now Divrigi in Turkey, on the upper Euphrates, for nine months. While there he wrote his Historia Manichaeorum qui Pauliciani dicuntur, which is one of the main sources for the history of the Paulician sect.
The Historia Manichaeorum was first published by Rader in Ingolstadt in 1604.

That it deals with slandering, it is obvious. Just only after a quick survey of the historical documented facts it is possible to ascertain that there were no need of any scholar to understand which kind of doctrine the Paulicians were teaching and following. Bright it appears that they were so much spread and for so long time that everyone there living could know their doctrine. 
BUT just for this reason there was no treatise on them till the moment Petrus Siculus, in order to deal with some hostages priests, sojourned in their state. Orthodoxies did hate them very much and I don't believe cause Manichean doctrines.

[Of course to make the deduction on how much the Jesuit "hostage" of today - Fr. Paolo Dall'Oglio SJ -  in the hands of "fundamentalists" of Islam is another theatrical boutade of the Catho-gnosticism alluding to those ancient Orthodox priests hostages of Paulicians (Paulicians-ISIS, Orthodox priests-Dall'Oglio, Guilty by Association? Bread for Stiliyanov's teeth here), I leave it to your understanding ].

What interest to me to deal with in this post is to underline the perfidy of the Byzantyne Orthodox Catholicism which, being likely doctrinally framed by the Paulicians Christians who, with their example of Christian life being under the eyes of everyone were seriously puzzling the Caste of Orthodox priests, thought well to "discover" the "truth" behind the Christian "appearance" of the everywhere spread Paulicians with a "scoop" by one of their agit-prop scribes, Petrus Siculus. 

I can imagine the slogan for the launch of the Siculus' treatise on the Paulicians: "This is the hidden truth Paulicians are hiding under the veil of a false Christian doctrine but when hidden in their state, they exhibit it without shame: the Satanic doctrine of Manicheans! So let's do a crusade to wipe 'em away from the earth these children of Satan who are accusing us poor Orthodoxies to be heretics!". 

Let's see who was the first publisher. Rader. Matthew Rader SJ ?

"...Philologist and historian, born at Innichen in the Tyrol in 1561; died at Munich, 22 December, 1634. At the age of twenty he entered the Society of Jesus and subsequently taught the humanities for twenty-one years in different Jesuit institutions. He wrote several school dramas, but was particularly known among Catholics and non-Catholics for his scholarly attainments. In 1599 he published an improved and expurgated edition of Martial, and in 1628 one of Quintus Curtius. His edition of the Acts of the Eighth Ecumenical Council was incorporated by Labbe and Cossart in their collection of the Acts of councils; that of the works of St. John Climacus, published in 1614, was reprinted by Migne in his Greek Patrology (LXXXVIII, 585 sqq.). More important than the publications just mentioned were his now very rare works: "Bavaria Sancta" (Munich, 7), and "Bavaria Pia" (Munich, 1628). Both were reprinted in 1704 at Dillingen and Augsburg, and the former was partly published in a German translation by Father Rassler at Straubing in 1840. ...."


And the city. Ingolstadt? The city of the Jesuits?

Adam Weishaupt was born in Ingolstadt, Bavaria (Germany) to Johann Georg Weishaupt (1717–1753) Professor of Law at the Jesuit controlled University of Ingolstadt. When his father died in 1753, he was adopted by his godfather Johann Adam Freiherr von Ickstatt who took up his father's position at the University.
Weishaupt later enrolled at the University of Ingolstadt and graduated in 1768 at age 20 with a doctorate of law. In 1772 he became a professor of law. The following year he married Afra Sausenhofer of Eichstätt.
On the suppression of the Jesuits by Pope Clement XIV in 1773, his life changed dramatically. He decided to join the Jesuits, now seeking safe havens in Southern Germany and at Ingolstadt.
In 1773, Weishaupt became professor of canon law, now being a Jesuit and set about supporting his Jesuit brothers hiding from persecution. Having joined a number of secret societies, such as the Freemasonry Lodge in Munich in order to see how they operated, Weishaupt finalized a new model of operation for the Jesuits in exile by April 1776.....etc. etc. etc.

All this successive anxiety of the Jesuits in to continue to publish the old Orthodox slander against  the Paulicians not only fits with the re-building of the Czar throne in Russia having in sight the End of the 1054 Schism for the Super-Catholicism ruling the world, but just tell us about the worries of the Jesuits who knew about the doctrinal Christian essence of Paulicians and were frightened to see "ancient Protestant" just in the land of the Catholicism they wanted to take back in the Romish herd.

I post here the last excerpt from Wikipedia as evidence. The best source describing the Paulicians as "not Trinitarian" and "adoptionists" (being the accuse of Manichean doctrine too weak) comes from a Catholic bishop of England (in this case "bishop" is not a clergy charge, he was lay professor of theology) - Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare - a man of course  interested in the diffusion of the perverted Alexandrine revision of the Bible by the Two False Witnesses Westcott & Hort. In fact Conybeare was 26 years old when the ugly fetus of the WH New Testament was published pardon, aborted......

Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare (14 September 1856 – 9 January 1924) was a British orientalist, Fellow of University College, Oxford, and Professor of Theology at the University of Oxford.

 And the Rationalist Association of which he was member?
 ".....The Rationalist Association, originally the Rationalist Press Association, is an organization in the United Kingdom, founded in 1885 by a group of free thinkers who were unhappy with the increasingly political and decreasingly intellectual tenor of the British secularist movement.[1] The purpose of the Press Association was to publish literature that was too anti-religious to be handled by mainstream publishers and booksellers. The RPA changed its name to the 'Rationalist Association' in 2002.[2]...."
  And what says Conybeare about the "Trinitarianism" of the Paulicians?

"......In Russia, after the war of 1828-29 Paulician communities could still be found in the part of Armenia occupied by the Russians. Documents of their professions of faith and disputations with the Georgian bishop about 1837 (Key of Truth, xxiii-xxviii) were later published by Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare. It is with Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare publications of the Paulicians disputations and "The Key of Truth" that Conybeare based his depiction of the Paulicians as simple, godly folk who had kept an earlier (sc. Adoptionistic) form of Christianity (ibid., introduction).[17]....
The Paulicians were branded as Jews, Mohammedans, Arians, and Manichæans but we always readily perceive that their opponents employed these appellations merely as term of abuse.[28] They call themselves Christians[29] or "True Believers".[2] Armenians always formed the majority in the provinces where the Paulicians were most influential and successful in spreading their doctrines.[5]
Frederick Conybeare in his edition of the Paulician manuel The Key of Truth concluded that "The word Trinity is nowhere used, and was almost certainly rejected as being unscriptural."[30]
......" [same URL as above - Wikipedia page on Paulicians]
"Nowhere used"? Is this really a proof of Adoptionism when there's such a lack of sources and the few ones are easily manipulated? 
"Was ALMOST certainly rejected"? Sure.....

Do you begin to smell the stench of a planned slandering of Paulicians from the above excerpt, were contradictory statements are mixed with indisputable evidence of pure Christian doctrine? You see there the exactly same pattern of slandering already proved & demonstrated as fabricated by the Catholic Inquisition:


At page 18 of Conybeare's book on Paulicians you can try his reasoning aimed  to compress Cathars (brothers of Vaudoises) and early English Christian church inside the  Adoptionist coffin. But invisible to the eyes of the blinds, there is the enormous elephant of the Catholic interests trying  to describe the early competitors (true Christians) of the  Harlot of Rome in the British Islands as "deviant from the doctrine":

found in:

If you have still doubts about the interests of Catholicism, both Roman as well Orthodox/Byzanthine, in to destroy the Christian image of Paulicians, give a look here about the love of Conybeare for the perverted Septuagint and never forget that the strategic goal of the Vatican and of the Jesuit order was  to keep the British Protestants out of the Orthodox field....:

Zondervan Publishing House, 1980 - 100 pagine

Grammar of the Septuagint Greek with Selected Readings from the Septuagint



Paulicians were true Christians and members of the perpetual church of Christ from the Apostolic age till our days, together with Vaudoises, Cathars, Albigenses, Anabaptists, Baptists etc. 
They may have been some deviations from the doctrine, like others denominations, but in  comparison the Catholic and Orthodox churches  were and are truly the church of Satan (and sometimes also, even if in very less measure, some pedo-baptist Protestant Reformed denominations)
The way in which Paulicians could survive for a longer period of time (similarly as the Vaoudoises) demonstrates that they were protected by the power of God and in those centuries were true legitime representatives of that woman of the chapter 12 of Revelation, the church of Christ.

"....Simon Magus and PaulThe Clementine literature had its first origin in the Apostolic Age, and belonged to the original Jewish, Petrine, legal Church. It is directed wholly against St. Paul and his sect. Simon Magus never existed; it is a nickname for St. Paul....."

Were Vaudoises persecuted cause reincarnation?


  1. Also claimed in the book that they used the Shepherd of Hermas


    The Shepherd of Hermas.
    It still survived in Moorish Spain, and was there vigorous as late as
    the ninth century; and it lived on in other parts of Europe, in
    Burgundy, in Bavaria, and in the Balkan Peninsula, where it was
    probably the basis of Bogomilism.
    My suggestion that the European Cathars were of Adoptionist
    origin also rests on mere inference. But they had so much in
    common with the Paulicians, that it is highly probable. My
    kindred surmise that the early British Church was Adoptionist
    seems to be confirmed by two inscriptions recently communicated
    to me by Prof. J. Rhys. These were found in North Wales and
    belong to the sixth to eighth centuries. They both begin with the
    words: 'In nomine Dei patris et filii Spiritus SanctiY This
    formula takes us straight back to The Shepherd of Hermas 2



  2. They take the bones of the heretics who have not confronted them and put them in their churches and catacombs for idolatrous worship and slander and vilify the rest

    Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

  3. tomorrow i will post something about the paulicans and the catholic gravediggers on my own soil. . .

    1. At page viii (Preface - page 12 of pdf document) of Key of Truth you read:

      "....its liturgy and rites, as characterized the Paulician Church, and
      provoked the ridicule of the orthodox Armenian writers.
      It is certain, however, that the christology of this church was
      Adoptionist. Through ANTIOCH and Palmyra this faith MUST HAVE
      spread into Mesopotamia and Persia ; and in those regions became
      the basis of that NESTORIAN Christianity which spread over Turkestan,
      INVADED CHINA, and still has a foothold in Urmiah and in Southern
      India. From centres like Edessa, Nisibis, and Amida it was
      diffused along the entire range of the Taurus, from Cilicia as far
      as Ararat, and beyond the Araxes into Albania, on the......".

      (my capital letters), practically this historical "scientific" research on Paulicians is the parallel, the twin, the reflex of the same "scientific" analysis of the Bible from the Alexandrian perspective. Isn't the Septuagint and Alexandrian fake? In fact he says "through Antioch",,... the (by Alexandrian scholars) hated Antioch. And Alexandria was the nest of Arianism.

    2. Same URL as above ("Key of Truth" - page x Preface):

      ".....In the West the Adoptionist faith was anathematized at Rome in
      the person of Theodotus as early as 190 a.d., but not before it had
      left a lasting monument of itself, namely, The Shepherd of Hermas.
      It still survived in Moorish Spain, and was there vigorous as late as
      the ninth century; and it lived on in other parts of Europe, in
      Burgundy, in Bavaria, and in the Balkan Peninsula, where it was
      probably the basis of Bogomilism. It is even not improbable that it was the heresy of the early British Church.But it has left few
      landmarks, for the rival christology which figured Jesus Christ not
      as a man, who by the descent of the Spirit on him was filled with
      the Godhead, but as God incarnate from his virgin mother's womb,
      advanced steadily, and, like a rising tide, soon swept over the whole
      face of Christendom ; everywhere effacing literary and other traces
      of the Adoptionist faith, which seems thenceforward to have only
      lived on in Languedoc and along the Rhine as the submerged
      Christianity of the Cathars, and perhaps also among the Waldenses.
      In the Reformation this Catharism comes once more to the surface,
      particularly among the so-called Anabaptist and Unitarian Christians,
      between whom and the most primitive church The Key of
      Truth and the Cathar Ritual of Lyon supply us with two great
      connecting links..
      How, it may be asked, could such a revolution of religious
      opinion as the above sketch implies take place and leave SO LITTLE
      trace behind ?......."

      -----> Answer: because maybe the early Christians were NOT Arianists, but this was the attempt of the early Catholicism, the destruction of Trinitarianism, a failed attempt from which the Catholicism promptly did retreat in order to not instigat an open opposition of the other Christians?

  4. "......The Key of Truth is a text identified as a manual of a Paulician (Tondrakian) church in Armenia. Frederick Conybeare first identified the 1782 manuscript from the library of Ejmiacin in Armenia and published a translation and edition in 1898.[1] Conybeare claimed that the text was a servicebook of the medieval Paulicians, that it contains a rite of ADULT BAPTISM WITH WATER,[2] and conscious omission of Trinitarian terminology. There is scholarly consensus that The Key of Truth was used by sectarians with beliefs DERIVED from the Paulicians, though scholars after Conybeare consider that these beliefs MAY HAVE EVOLVED since the Middle Ages.[3]......"


    1. From the same URL as above_:

      ".....Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics Part 18 - Page 695 James Hastings, John A. Selbie - 2003 "The possible exception is The Key of Truth, which was discovered by FC Conybeare, translated from the Armenian, ...

  5. Western and Eastern churches united against Patareni, Bogomili, Paulicians - I have still less doubts about the operation "pervert their belief and denounce them as NOT Trinitarian", in other words: fabricate alibis to kill 'em all:

    ".....Hugh Etherianus or Ugo Eteriano[1] (Pisa, 1115–Constantinople, 1182), was an ADVISER on western church affairs to BYZANTINE emperor Manuel Comnenus
    He and his brother Leo Tuscus,[2] were Tuscans by birth, employed at the court of Constantinople under the Emperor Manuel I Comnenus. Hugh was a Catholic theologian and controversialist, who became a Cardinal at the end of his life.[3]

    He is notable for his work CONTRA PATARENOS ("Against the Patarenes") which is a treatise against CATHARISM surviving in two Latin manuscripts in OXFORD [Conybear's university!!!!!!] and Seville. Latin Patarenes was an alternative name for CATHARS, and the text sheds light on the relationship between Western European CATHARISM and older [?????] Byzantine dualist movements such as BOGUMILS.[4]......"


  6. http://anabaptismexposed.blogspot.it/

    Very telling.... well, mixing true Christian doctrine, with the Inquisition's work of slander, plus adding some perversions of some of those denominations obtained plausibly with infiltration in them of the Catholic Whore, you have a global picture of the Catholic persecution of the New Testament Church, and the Catholic very refined techniques:

    ......What sects do Landmark Baptists believe constitute "the New Testament Church" persecuted on doing through the centuries by the Harlot?

    Listed for us are Donatists, Paterines, Cathari, Paulicians, Anabaptists, Petro-Brussians, Arnoldists, Henricians, Albigenses, and Waldenses (5).

    What were some of the beliefs of these groups?

    The Albigenses, from what little writings we have by them, believed that the material world was evil, and the spiritual world good, and these two worlds were ever colliding and at war with each other (6).

    The Cathari, like the Albigenses, believed the same thing, emphasized a dualistic view of history and the world, believed Jehovah to be a tyrant, and also believed in reincarnation (7).

    The Albigenses had a huge influence on the Rosicrucians (8), and the Cathari were integral in the founding of the Knights Templar (9), which gave birth to Freemasonry. Both of these groups are secret societies considered Satanic by scholars, historians, and virtually all Christians, including Landmark Baptists.

    The Paulicians were a sect that revived the teachings of the Manicheans (10), a Persian religion heavily influenced by Buddhism and Zoroastrian paganism....etc. etc.

    1. Same URL as above:

      "....The Waldensians endorsed the validity of baptism even when performed by the Church of Rome, and stated in their 1655 Waldensian Confession “that we do agree in sound doctrine with all the Reformed Churches of France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland…and others as it is set forth by them in their Confessions—as also in the Confession of Augsburg.” But in his book The Anabaptist Story, Baptist Dr. W.R. Estep wrote: “not one of the Swiss Anabaptist leaders came from a Waldensian background…All of the early Anabaptist leaders came originally from the Roman Church…or directly out of Catholicism into Anabaptist life.”....".
