He who brought to light the true story of Robin Hood was the Greek-American Orthodox Priest, Fr. John Romanidis († 2001), a graduate of Yale University and later a professor at the Theological Schools of Harvard, Athens, Thessaloniki and Boston's Holy Cross.
Late Fr. John, revealed that Robin was an Orthodox rebel who, along with his close friend "Little John", fought against the Franco-Norman invaders at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 AD.
In a victorious battle against the Norman invaders in 1089 AD, Robin was wounded. He went to a nearby monastery seeking refuge, where covered in blood he asked a Norman nun for help. She, however, let him die of bleeding, since he had just renounced Orthodoxy for the sake of Papism!
From then on, after the final defeat of the Orthodox rebels, the common Orthodox people were placed by the Norman conquerors in small villages and the people were separated. They were forced to live at some 40,000 castles under the continuous and strict watch of soldiers. This sums up the main reason, why the Orthodox, then, Irish-British slaves were forced to lose their Faith, while at the same time their Bishops were assassinated by their conquerors.
