Justinian I, Theodora, And the Monophysite Schism

Justinian I, Theodora, And the Monophysite Schism

Ratings: (0)|Views: 409 |Likes:
Eventually, the break between the churches of East and West would be unconquerable; however, the last Roman Emperor, who became the first Byzantine one, tried all of his life to bring the schism to an end. Much of that effort was due to his wife, Theodora, who in equal partnership with her husband, after having arisen from the depths of common life, became an ardent protector of the rights of others to believe as they wished. It was this partnership, in conjunction with the desire to bring about religious unity and the former glory of the Roman Empire that drove Justinian I to behave as he did; and it was love for his Livia that drove him to see her as an equal within their marriage.
