Lineage of the Saints based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I belong to eleven lineage societies, one of which is Saints and Sinners, with verified source material from over 160 Saints of both the Roman Catholic Church, as well as the various Eastern Orthodox denominations with direct lineal descendants, as well as other collaterally descended Saints. I also belong to an internationally recognized organization, The Augustan Society, which counts among its membership many, many internationally recognized genealogists, historians, and experts in Heraldry. But nowhere on the Augustine Society's website does one find a certain Saint/Holy Roman Emperor as 'Charlemange' (and not once, but at least twice! Spellcheck notwithstanding, I find it difficult to expect an author with the inability to either self-edit or two forget the spelling of someone with such a large historical footprint. What other "simple" mistakes could have been included, one wonders? The Augustine Society is currently in the process of attempting to trace various genealogical lines back through sources of antiquity to, among others, the royalty of Ancient Egypt (real souces that can be cross-verified, rather than so-called "Canonical" books of the various versions of the Hebrew Tanakh and the Christian Bible, which are much celebrated, but are, nonetheless, books of faith rather than verifiable history.) Only time, and FAR more research, will reveal which is the more reliable. Just one refutable "fact": in Mt 1:1-16, the lineage of Jesus is given as a descendant of David, through Jesus' STEP-father Joseph...while, according to the New Testament, Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, through the Annunciation of Mary by "an angel", identified historically (at least in NON-canonical books, as the Angel Gabriel. So no lineage, other than through Joseph's adoption/acceptance could connect him with David.
