Thank you for 2000+

Thanks to those 2000+ viewers who have read this blog. I appreciate it more than you know. I will be posting more information soon about Erzebet and women of her time similarly situated. In this month of haunts and vampires, her story becomes particularly significant. Also, the plight of protestants in Catholic dominated countries also becomes instructive, and those interested may want to read histories of The Holy Inquisitin and The Huguenots. From my own experiences and heritage, I can tell you that many vampire legends began in Eastern Europe after The Great Schism, when the new Catholic supporters fought the traditional Church, now the Greek Orthodox/Eastern Orthodox Church. A good book on the subject is Bishop Timothy Ware's, The Orthodox Church. The combatants fought over who would bury the dead, and spread vampire legends about undead bodies walking the earth if they were not buried by the proper church. Whic church was proper was, of course, part of the controversy and therefore subjective at the time. Thank you, and keep reading. I welcome information from other sites or sources as well. Dr. E
