Professor Romanides and his followers appear to confuse the Greek usage of "Franks" -- which later writers applied indiscriminately to _all_ Western Latin Europeans, including Germans! -- with the original tribe that occupied Gaul.

Franks are Germans, and Frankish is a Germanic language. See: Wikipedia:Franks --Rdr. Andrew 13:42, 26 Mar 2005 (CST)
That's a good point (I'm thinking of frankfurters, etc.) - I was just cutting and pasting to stir some discussion. I hope that, in time, this will become a very lively article! Fr. John
That seems like a pretty egregiously obvious error on Bratton's part. Do you perhaps have a source for some more informed criticism of Romanides? What about his debate with Meyendorff over the nature of Barlaam's errors?
P.S. Do you think it's wise/okay to copy text from a 9 year old listserv message into OrthodoxWiki? Did you contact Dr. Bratton? --Rdr. Andrew 14:34, 26 Mar 2005 (CST)
