SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Pope Soter

Pope Soter was the Bishop of Rome from c. 167 to his death c. 174. According to the Annuario Pontificio, the dates may have ranged from 162–168 to 170–177, he was born in Fondi, today Lazio region, Italy. Soter is known for declaring that marriage was valid only as a sacrament blessed by a priest and for formally inaugurating Easter as an annual festival in Rome, his name, from Greek Σωτήριος from σωτήρ "saviour", would be his baptismal name, as his lifetime predates the tradition of adopting papal names. Saint Soter's feast day is celebrated on 22 April; the Roman Martyrology, the official list of recognized saints, references Soter: "At Rome, Saint Soter, whom Dionysius of Corinth praises for his outstanding charity towards needy exiled Christians who came to him, towards those, condemned to the mines."It has been supposed that all the earliest Popes suffered martyrdom, but the Roman Martyrology does not give Pope Soter the title of martyr. The book detailing the 1969 revision of the General Roman Calendar states: "There are no grounds for including Saint Soter and Saint Caius among the martyrs."

The Montanist movement, which originated in Asia Minor, made its way to Rome and Gaul in the second half of the 2nd century, during the reign of Eleuterus. Its nature did not diverge so much from the orthodoxy of the time for it to be labeled heresy. During the violent persecution at Lyon, in 177, local confessors wrote from their prison concerning the new movement to the Asiatic and Phrygian communities as well as to Pope Eleuterus; the bearer of their letter to the pope was the presbyter Irenaeus. It appears from statements of Eusebius concerning these letters that the Christians of Lyon, though opposed to the Montanist movement, advocated patience and pleaded for the preservation of ecclesiastical unity; when the Roman church took its definite stand against Montanism is not known. Tertullian records that a Roman bishop sent some conciliatory letters to the Montanists, but based on the complaints of Praxeas "concerning the prophets themselves and their churches, by insistence on the decisions of the bishop's predecessors" forced the pontiff to recall these letters.

Another ancient source states that "Holy Soter, Pope of the City, wrote against them a book, as did the master, Apollonius of Ephesus. Against these wrote the priest Tertullian of Carthage, who "in all ways wrote well, wrote first and wrote incomparably, in this alone did reprehensibly, that he defended Montanus". At Rome, the Gnostics and Marcionites continued to preach against the Catholic Church. List of Catholic saints List of popes

Harakiri, or Madame Butterfly, is a 1919 silent film directed in Germany by Fritz Lang. It was one of the first Japanese-themed films depicting Japanese culture; the film was released in the United States and other countries as Madame Butterfly because of the source material on which it is based and which inspired Giacomo Puccini's eponymous opera.

A Buddhist monk wants Tokujawa's daughter O-Take-San to become a priestess of Buddha.
