    Great few episodes these. I’m not exactly proud of it, but I couldn’t help but burst out laughing at the idea of a deacon dryhumping the tomb of a saint.

    • Thanks so much for the feedback. And I’m glad you found that funny. There was a miracle story I wasn’t able to include where a guy fell down the stairs to the tomb and cried out “Oh wretched me. I’ve been fractured all over.” That cracked me up, even though its obviously just a trick of the translation 🙂

    Are you ever going to put the podcast on Google Music? I use it for all my other podcasts just for ease of use.

    Either way thanks for all the great content!

    This might be a bit late for the current batch of end of the century episodes, but I don’t mind when it gets answered.

    Has there been any development of dialects of Greek during the Byzantine period like there was in the West? Have years of rule by Arabs or Slavs or Bulgars altered the Greek of the Romans who lived there?
