Aerial Toll Houses (3rd Version, as of Friday 11 March AD 2016)

Here is a list of people that I have found through my own studies--and not from reading what someone else read--who believe the toll houses to be either literal and/or figurative/metaphorical:

"The Logos . . . reduce[d] to impotence the hostile powers that fill the intermediary region between heaven and earth . . . " -On the Lord's Prayer (circa 628-630
 circa 7th century - St. Theodoros the Great Ascetic  - L & F

b1815-d1894 - St. Theophan the Recluse - L

b1896-d1966 - St. John (Maximovitch) the Wonderworker - L

b1897/1898-d1959 - Elder Joseph the Hesychast - L

b1934-d1982 - Fr. Seraphim Rose - L & F
