User:Thane

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

My username was formerly Guðsþegn, which is a neologism
meaning God's thane in Old English, or Old Norse, or even modern Icelandic.
I switched to my current username because the old username contained unusual letters that many people had difficulty understanding, or even verbalizing.

In addition to meaning royal servant or minister, Thane can also be used as shorthand for Athanasius (at least I'm claiming it can). Saint Athanasius was a very important Nicene-era church leader who (more than any other) kept the Church of Christ from falling into Arianism, as well as being a significant voice in the establishment of the New Testament biblical canon.


I love history, geography, architecture, theology, political philosophy, etc.
