  1. Likely not. Let’s start at the beginning. Who is Barsanorii? Based on what I can find it might be Abott Barsanorii aka Saint Barsanorii. It could be someone else.

    Secondly, I am a graduate student with lots of research, reading and studying to do. I can not magically make museums respond. I know, I’ve tried and it did not work. I once wrote 27 different museums making an inquiry about something all of them had information on. Two responded. One was useful.

    I feel your frustration. I really do.

    I wish you luck.
