I recently found a copy of Iris Habib el Masri's "Story of the Copts" and am eagerly reading it. It's great, and makes a fantastic supplement to the rather breathtaking 30 minute run-through of 2000 years of Alexandrine Orthodox history given to me by my priest at the first liturgy I attended.
One event I am curious about that is only briefly covered is the Council of Tyre, which led to the exile of the Bishop to Traves in Western Europe, and apparently sought to exonerate Arius from the accusations of heresy against him (most of the bishops in attendance being Arians), despite his having been condemned at the earlier Nicaean council.
This, to me, seems so extraordinarily crazy that I really want to learn more about it. Are there any other resources available in English from which to study the goings on of this council? Thank you all for any suggestions.
