, Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar In Eastern Europe the church which brought Christianity to Bohemia, Poland, Lithuania and the Ukraine, was the Byzantine Catholic Church, not the Roman Catholic Church. After the Byzantine Catholic Church was driven out of Asia Minor by the Moslem Horde, the various East European Catholic Churches became national Catholic Churches. Now, this all came to have an effect upon Anglo-American culture in an interesting way. You see, one of the wives of Henry the 8th, King of England, was Queen Anne of Bohemia. When the two were married Anne brought with her from Bohemia her entire Court and all her vassals. Over a million people, all of which, by the way were Bohemian Catholic Church members. When they reaches England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, where they settled, they intermarried with the Norman Catholics and called themselves Episcopalian Catholic. What is not very well known is that the Royal House of Stuart, in England, were the descendants of the marriage of Anne of Bohemia and Henry the 8th. They had 5 children together, but both Rome and the Anglican Church opposed her heirs as Royals because they were Episcopalian Catholic. Queen Anne, by the way was never beheaded like Henry’s other wives.

When the Stuarts were driven out by the Protestants, who chose the House of Hanover from Germany for their King in England, the Stuarts made their way to America. Some were able to settle in America, but because they were Episcopalian Catholic, they did not fit in very well in either Roman Catholic Maryland, or the other Protestant colonies. So most of the Stuarts and their kinsman landed in Hispanola, which is now Cuba. They kept their ships and built even more and were privateers praying on the Spanish treasure ships heading from South America and Mexico to Spain. After awhile the Stuart Episcopalian Catholics founded the City of New Orleans, and made their way up the Mississippi River to the Missouri River, settling in what is now Saint Louis, Missouri, Omaha, Nebraska, and Yankton, South Dakota. They also made their way up the Ohio River, settling in what is now Chicago, Illinois, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although all of these settlers were considered to be Scots Irish for the most part, they were also Bohemian Czech most with anglicized names. The Stuart Episcopalian Catholics also settled in Texas. Often having openly Episcopalian Catholic parishes and Dioceses. The Texans were afraid to be Roman Catholic because they thought that the Mexican Spaniards would use Roman Church authority to divest them of their political rights and property.
