The real purpose is to wipe out the Quartodecimans still operating in Ireland from Cashel. Only priests from Armagh are endorsed by Rome. Ireland is subjected to incredible barbarism from this point onwards. The popes for four centuries claimed the overlordship of Ireland based on Adrian's Donation. The basis of the handover of what was Hibernia to England was done on the claim of Constantine's establishment of the Roman Catholic Church:

"At my solicitation he gave and granted Hibernia to Henry II, the illustrious king of England, to hold by hereditary right, as his letter [which is extant] to this day testifies. For all islands of ancient right, according to the Donation of Constantine, are said to belong to the Roman Church, which he founded. New Advent - Catholic Encyclopedia

Pope Gregory IX designs the Inquisition in an attempt to deal with those labeled "heretics".

We know from the evidence of the Inquisitions what the doctrines of the Church were at the various stages of its distribution.

The Albigensian Crusades

Albigensian Crusades of the thirteenth century consists of groups that were without doubt Sabbath-keepers.

There is evidence that the Nazarene Sect continued to exist until at least the 13th century. The writings of the Catholic teacher, Bonacursus, entitled "Against the Heretics," refer to the Nazarenes, who were also called "Pasagini." Bonacursus wrote:

"Let those who are not yet acquainted with them, please note how perverse their belief and doctrine are. First, they teach that we should obey the Law of Moses according to the letter - the Sabbath, and circumcision, and the legal precepts still being in force. Furthermore, to increase their error, they condemn and reject all the Church Fathers [heretics like Marcion, Tertullian, etc], and the whole Roman Church."

It should be noted that the followers of Yeshua are guided by the rule of law. They had in their possession the teachings of the Creator of Eternity, and they saw no good reason to stop following them! They had direct commands of YHWH which were being ignored by some in favor of man-made interpolations of things that were twisted in Yeshua's teachings.

1415 CE

1441-1905 CE

The Orthodox Church in Russia and its adjacent areas ruthlessly persecuted religious dissent and attempted to exterminate all Sabbatarians within their sphere of influence ( Struggle for Orthodox Supremacy) book by Daniel H. Shubin.

The period covered begins 1441 with arrival of Isidore, the metropolitan of Moscow, to the Moscow Chudov (Miracles) Monastery for incarceration. Russian Monasteries were used by the Orthodox Russian Church for the incarceration of religious dissenters and sectarians, political activists and criminals.

From this time until the edict of religious toleration of Tsar Nicholas II in 1905 CE., when the final inmates were released from the Suzdal Spasso-Evfimiev Monastery, many Sabbath keeping Christians saw the last days of their lives in the dungeons of these monastery prisons. Many Sabbath-keeping Christian women were also imprisoned in Orthodox convents.
