    Legacy of Heraclius: Another No Islam timeline
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Greetings I am Basileus Julius, or just Julius. I have decided to write my own no islam timeline. I am aware of the Heirs of Heraclius timeline by Silver 01, however I plan to make my timeline very different as I will go for a more in depth approach for politics, religious divisions, and...
  2. What if Adoptionism became the Main Doctrine in Christianity?

    [CHALLENGE] If Adoptionism became the Creed of Mainstream Christianity never becoming a heresy; then how would this have affected history, theology, cultures, politics, international relations, etc? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adoptionism Would there be less of a cultural divide between Islam...

    WI: Umar ibn Hafsun defeats the Umayyads - Mozarab/Muladí Al-Andalus

    One of my favorite historical subjects to research is Al-Andalus, the Muslim-ruled realms of the Iberian peninsula that existed between the 8th and 15th centuries. A land where East met West, Al-Andalus represented a rare example of Islamic Arab rule of Western European territory, resulting in...
  4. Effects of Islamic conquest of the Frankish Kingdom(s), in the reign of Pepin the Short, on Ireland and its "Golden Age"

    The title. Between the 6th century and the Viking age, the Gaels were beginning to live a period of cultural flourishment as a result of the many prominent Christian figures and their activities in continental Europe. Domestically, this represented a flourishment in insular art, metalworking...

    Competition to Christianity in a World Without Islam

    In a world without Islam (let's just say Muhammad dies a sickly infant or something along those lines), an assumption is that Christianity is a religion which does better without the Islamic Conquests with how the Middle East and North Africa were very much centers of Christianity prior to the...
  6. Bulgarian union or reformation in the third quarter of the 19th century and their consequences

    The Bulgarian national revival (link:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgarian_National_Revival) in the 18th - 19th centuries was more directed against the Greek cultural and spiritual influence, exerted in this number also through the church, than against the Ottoman conquerors - for example, the...
  7. AHC -"Protestant" Bosnia - Neither Catholic,Orthodox or Muslim

    Even today, Bosnia stands out for having a Muslim European population. While Albania also has a Muslim population, it is not Slavic, making Bosnia more unique IMO. Of course, other Balkan nations had (and still have) significant Muslim minorities (e.g., Bulgaria, Greece), but most were either...

    The Common Fate Of All

    Preface A realm on the brink of disaster is home to many a serpent. In the hands of its stricken king, Jerusalem awaits with bated breath the outcome of the struggle between the two great faiths of the age. In the treacherous pit that is cradle to ambition and power, the most...
  9. AHQ: alternate new testament

    The codification of the New Testament was a process that took three centuries and during which the inclusion or exclusion of multiple books was debated and even today there is controversy about some of the books in it, so I would like to ask if you could choose the books that were accepted and...

    Doctrine of a Japanese Christianity

    I've been working on a Christian Japan timeline off-site for a little while now, and while I originally started it as a Catholic Japan TL, I recently began exploring the much more rarely explored idea of Japan instead being Protestant. This happened after I read up on the Chinese Rites...
  11. AHC - Minor (Surviving/Alternative) religions

    Okay, hear me out. Topics such as 'What if [Major Religion] didn't exist?' or 'What if [Region] followed [Different Religion]?, What if [Religion] was Bigger' etc are very common in alternative history circles. These scenarios can drastically alter a given timeline, sometimes creating an almost...
  12. What if the Anglo-Saxons never converted to Christianity?

    Let's start with a point of divergence. We will say that either the Augustine mission sent to preach amongst the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms by Pope Gregory The Great either fails miserably within a few short years, or is never called at all. Instead the Anglo-Saxons remain largely pagan. Perhaps...

    AHC: Southern India is majority Christian (Catholic/Orthodox) by 1100 AD

    Christianity arrived in southern India during the first century CE but the number of converts were low and geographically restricted to a small part of the Malabar coast. What would it take for the religion to grow massively popular in the following millennium?

    Introduction A nation in flux, Nigeria buzzed with anticipation and trepidation. The political winds of change swept the landscape as the 1993 presidential campaign unfolded.

    Would I or II Enoch be most likely accepted as Universal Canon in Bible?

    The Book of Enoch is the most infamous of all the books left out of the Bible with Ethiopia and Eritrea the only churches having it in their canon. But there are also churches in the Slavic world who had the affection of II Enoch and their is evidence of this version being written in Coptic. So...
  16. Plausibility of Russia becoming a christian haven for middle east christians in the 19th century

    I was just thinking today... how plausible is Imperial Russia using the "Third Rome" (like the crazy Greek Plan from Catherine the Great) excuse and inviting/gathering christian minorities (asia minor greeks), syriac christians, armenians, assyrians and copts? Like a christian zion. Today there...

    A different Philippines - Two Sultanates in Luzon instead of Full Spanish Domination of Luzon.
    Threadmarks: Setting foot of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi

    On 1570, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi land in Ysla de Luzon or Ysla de Tagala[1] where he would find two Sultanates, the Sultanate of Selurong and the Sultanate of Kumintang which the Spanish would record as Tagala and Comintan, the Sultan of Kumintang would be friendly to the Spanish and even gave...
  18. How would Racism develop if Christianity spread far beyond Europe and it's colonies?

    Basically, as I understand it, the conception that "race" is defined by inherent biological characteristics, and the *White Europeans are superior to all other races is a very modern conception, the product of the last few hundred years. As I understand, this wasn't the case in the ancient...

    How different would Protestant Christianity be if the Deuterocanonical Books weren't removed from the Protestant Bible?

    I grew up Methodist and currently or leaning towards converting into the Coptic Orthodox Church and I've noticed that their Bible contains books that aren't in most Protestant Bibles called the Deuterocanonical Books (Baruch, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and Wisdom). The Prayer of...

    WI Mormonism doesn't protestantize

    In the late 1800s early 1900s mormonism has to radically change to survive. Modern mormonism had nothing to do with early mormonism besides the book of mormon. It was actually closer to Pentecostalism. Here are some changes. Allowing blacks into the priesthood Banning polygamy Banning tongues...
