Покров Пресвятыя Богородицы

выложил черновик статьи о происхождении этого праздника и заодно -- это самостоятельный предмет интереса -- о культе св. Григория Просветителя в Византии.
там не отполирован английский, содержится ссылка на Note 2 (о мощах Андрея Юродивого в К.поле -- я ее потом напишу, там все равно ничего интересного, а пока что там Note 2 о другом), нет никакого резюме -- но поэтому я выкладываю и подробное оглавление.
