In reading the letters of St. Basil...

...I also found it of interest that when writing the Prefect Modestus (Letter 104) about recent changes in taxes, he begs him to stand by the old order:

"By the old census, the clergy of God, presbyters and deacons, were left exempt."

Hmm. Interessant, nicht Wahr?
