A Good Example

of the corruption in the eastern church at the beginning of the 5th century.  John Chrysostom, one of the great saints of the eastern church was exiled because of this so called pope theophilus of alexandria.  This was the beginning of the east west schism.  Jerome who was apparently getting money from theophilus was forced to get involved in this dispute.  Jerome’s letter to theophilus is very interesting.
