Historical Sketch of the Missions of the American Board in Turkey (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Historical Sketch of the Missions of the American Board in Turkey The enemy had overdone his work. The excommuni cation was a blunder; for it founded four Protestant churches the first year. And the previous measures had been equally blundering. For, remarkable as was the spirit of inquiry among the Armenians, it had been vastly increased by the measures taken to put it down. The 'enemies of a pure gospel had done an immense amount of gratuitous advertising almost from the first. The Romish Patriarch had (in 1836) tried his hand at a public denunciation of the missionaries and their books. Four years later, the Armenian Patriarch had issued a bull, followed in a fortnight by a bull from the Greek Patriarch, both of the same description, and by an imperial firman apparently re-enforcing them.
