In this much anticipated deep dive Gregory Heers, translator for UMP & son of Fr. Peter Heers, joins us to discuss the saintly life and rule of St. John Doukas Vatatzes III, Emperor of Nicaea. We discuss the era of the Roman (Byzantine) interregnum as the Latins briefly occupy Constantinople and how St. Jon built an ideal Orthodox, nationalist state “in exile” as it were, setting the stage for the retaking of the Roman capital city. We also discuss his Saintly relatives, the other competing states at the time, his correspondence with the Pope & Holy Roman Emperor, his incorrupt relics, his cult & veneration, the location of his relics today, & so much more! Be sure to become a supporter here on SubStack to hear the nearly 2 hour discussion AND get notified when we release part 2!👇🏻
