Post Heretics???

Does anyone know of a website listing the names of persons who have been branded as heretics by the church over the years.

Thanks in advance.

One of the world's most infamous heretics of all time was the Pharoah Akhenaton. He may not qualify as to your OP but he was a major pain in the ass to the Egyptian priesthood. I'm sure the early Christian church was well aware of him and no doubt kept knowledge of his deeds to a limited circle.

Northern Sun has a TShirt that lists some major heretics on it. Check out their website - they have lots of nice stuff.

Ecco - there have been so many people considered heretics over the last 2000 years or so of Christian (I'm presuming) history. Have you tried focussing on particular periods in history first and then finding out heretics from that era first and then working your way through other periods? Sounds long and tedious, but it might work. Hope it helps.

Unlikely. Akhenaten was pretty much completely written out of Egyptian history by later pharaohs who returned to the worship of the old gods, and most of what we know about the man stems from rediscovering the city that he built, Akhetaten. I have heard it said that the Aten cult might have had some Jewish influences, but personally I do not consider there to be sufficient evidence for such a claim. It is unlikely that the early Christians would have known much, if anything at all, about the Armarna period or Akhenaten in particular.
