Obviously, any corrections, comments, etc. are most welcome.

I find this very interesting and well presented . There are many links but are worth following through. There are , as far as I can see , no prejudiced views but an honest effort to present a well balanced historical
study. Will read further .

miltiades NEVER reads, (or if he does cannot understand the content) he just voices the opinions of those that lead him by the nose. :lol: :wink:

If you look on page 1 .... you will see I have read and quoted ... and languished, yesterday evening, watching this thread lie undisturbed; until I couldn't wait any longer and posted my opinion ... formulated after reading the material I commented upon.

I did not announce that I was intending to read it :roll: and especially as you have done, form an opinion indeed, before even reading the material. :roll:
