From professional point of view, I'm an eternal student - I have already finished a master in Archaeology and now I study bachelor degree GIS - the computer part of everything needed to be an expert on Computer Aplications in Archaeology.

From spiritual point of view, I'm a young child in Christ (converted on Easter 2010, baptised a year later), a pilgrim to Santiago de Compostela (I have been there once and I hope it wasn't the last time), a Catholic and a member of Light-Life Movement.

And about hobbies, I'm a RPG enthusiast and I like hiking and everything I've already mentioned.

Here on SE, I've found a nice place to talk about Christianity and a source of information for my job. As a Czech patriot, I also hope my language will find its place here.

comment Have witches ever been executed by the Eastern Orthodox Church?
Welcome here! My question was specifically about witches, not heretics (and iconoclasts saw icon-painters as heretics), and not about "witch hunting" meant figuratively. Also, in Western Christianity executing witches was officially condemned until 1484, which is Renaissance, no dark age (though many "witches" were probably killed in Dark Age out of superstition, despite Church law). But the peak of Western witch hunting was during Reformation, the main schism of the West. It would take further research to find if Iconoclasts ever accused their opponents of magic as well.

comment Where did the belief that Saul fell from a horse come from?
Better now, +1. I won't accept it though. Golden Legend is old and important enough that I might accept it, but I would prefer supplementing it with some text/sermon from Antiquity which either mentions Paul's fall from a horse or seems to contradict this theory. Before 1260 can mean either Antiquity (here I would like some more details) or early Middle Ages. In the latter case I would like some basic proof that it's unlikely to originate in Antiquity (some 4th or 5th century author clearly not knowing it would be perfect).

comment Where did the belief that Saul fell from a horse come from?
You give some reasons why people would expect Paul to travel by horse. I understand it as an attempt to answer WHY people would believe such a theory, but not when it started. I probably won't downvote it as off-topic, but I won't upvote or accept it unless you add some more finds on the age/origin of this tradition. Pointing to Caravaggio is definitely not enough for me.

comment How does the Orthodox Church view the Roman Catholic Church?
No. 3 - the question wasn't on guidance, but on Sacrament of Penance - does God forgive sins to the Orthodox if they confess to a Catholic ("heterodox") priest? Otherwise a good answer.

comment At what time of day was Jesus crucified?
Welcome here! If you intend to use this site, please read our introductory tour. About your answer... it sounds crazy, given the context (see Freemason's argumentation). This site is mainly about what various groups identifying themselves as Christians believe, so some crazy-looking ideas may be accepted here, but you need extra effort on linking sources proving that some authority (they must be wikipedia page or like about them) really teaches that, and that it is applicable to the question.

Slightly better, not perfect. I tried to fill the hole by my own answer.
