    had long

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "had long" in the following sentence:

    Klaus, an experimental physicist with relentless interest in spirituality and the nature of the spiritual reality, had long since found traditional Christian fundamentalism too conning when he experienced his rst encounter with orbs.
