11122Re: [gothic-l] Epithets used for Theodosius, for Constantinople, etc.
- Dec 5, 2013Concening their ethnicity they were from time to time completed with new groups of another ethnicity but they were made Goths by accepting their religion. As I have shown the Gothic ethnicity was based on religion, not language, all the time from the beginning to the fall of the visigoths in 711. The only difference is that they changed to Arianism 376 which then constituted their ethnicity. For closer information go to www.academia.edu and search for Ingemar Nordgren, Goths and Religion, as downloadable PDF, which is part of the book Wulfila 311-2011, Uppsala 2013.
