On 'Christianity', Dermot is, of course, an historian and nothing to do with the Oxford divinity school. He is an ex-Anglican whose view on Christianity is partly formed by being the son of a vicar, and partly by his being gay.
Ah sorry, I miswrote this it seems, he is in part of the theology faculty for Oxford, not the school of Divinity. Funnily enough he used to be Head of the Theology faculty at Bristol university where I once attended a lecture from him on Christian history which thoroughly omitted anything to do with the Eastern and Oriental Churches after Constantine . I supose he keeps with that line of thought these days too. :lol:
