one times Louroujina was considered the head-quarters of the curious sect of the "Linobambaki" or "Flax and cottons", who
whilst outwardly professing Mohammedanism(*), were in reality Christians. They however disliked the opprobrious title given
them by both Turks and Greeks and preferred to be known as "Lourouziatai".
(*) From Moslems' point of view, it is misleading, inappropriate and incorrect
to refer to Moslems as Mohammedans and Islam as Mohammedanism.
