vard and at the University of Kent, Canterbury for comments on an earlier draft of this paper. They bear no responsibility for any errors, judgments or recommendations it contains.

1.
The brutal killings of Greek Cypriots in the Buffer Zone in August 1996, as well as the earlier Imia Incident in the Aegean, suggest no relaxation of tension between Greeks and Turks.
2.
I must make clear that by using the term logic at all, I in no way seek to justify revenge killings of any sort. It is necessary to say this because of misunderstandings which have arisen in the minds of some Turkish Cypriot scholars about the direction of my 1988 argument.
3.
In passing, perhaps, it is worth mentioning that some of those early Christian debates were about how the Trinity was to be understood, and central to that problem were perplexing questions about the notion of consubstantiality. How could God be produced through a woman, because the woman could not be consubstantial with God? Yet if she did not in some sense share the same substance as her child, in what sense could he be said to have been born of her? These debates led the Nestorian Christians, in particular, to split off from Orthodoxy. I cannot help suspecting that somewhere in the background were two contending understandings of procreation--one a more patrilineal, the Male-Seed-Determines-Everything theory, and the other a more bilateral one. I shall return briefly to this issue a little later.
3.
I am developing a detailed critique of Delaney's interpretations of her data, and the implications for Greek ethnography of her arguments. See also Paradellis ( 1995).
