I really should write more about monarchy here. But before that, I want to hear about your favorite religious figures, whether they've influenced you or you just find them interesting. I'll begin with a few.

Nicholas of Cusa - a Catholic philosopher, theologian, jurist and astronomer. He wrote about things such as "docta ignorantia" (learned ignorance) and "coincidentia oppositorum" (unity of opposites).

Jakob Böhme - a Lutheran philosopher, mystic and theologian. He based his beliefs on a couple of mystical visions he had. He thought, among other things, that everything began with the Ungrund, or the Abyss, that God is a constantly developing being and that the Fall was a necessary thing. He is also sometimes credited as being the founder of modern Western "Sophiology".

Nicolaus Zinzendorf - the founder of the Moravian Church. He placed much emphasis on the adoration of Christ's wounds, even his circumcised penis. The side wound was especially important in his belief system. He believed every soul to be female and Christ to be the husband of every believer. He called the Holy Spirit "the Mother" because, well, the Holy Spirit is kind of like a mother. He was also in support of the ordination of women.

Nestorius - the founder of the Nestorian Church. Nestorius was a Kurd from Kirkuk. He was unjustly condemned as a heretic by the Council of Ephesus in 431. Nestorius was accused of believing, that Jesus Christ is divided into two persons, but Nestorius actually believed in Jesus Christ being one person with two natures. Nestorius emphasized the distinction between the divine nature of Jesus Christ and the human nature of Jesus Christ.
Nestorius rejected calling Mary Theotokos (Mother of God), because Nestorius considered claiming, that Mary being the mother of the divine nature of Jesus Christ inappropriate, because the divine nature of Jesus Christ can't be of human origin. Nestorius wanted to call Mary Christotokos (Mother of Christ) instead of Theotokos, because Mary is the mother of the person of Jesus Christ.
I'm a Nestorian Christian Kurd.
