Hi Robin – I had two questions for the end of the century episodes:
(1) Were slaves actually used in Byzantium or were the Byzantines mere facilitators of slavers’ trade? What did the Church had to say about slavery? Surely slavery contradicted some of the most basic Christian principles.
(2) Did the great families of Byzantium have their own banners or family words similarly to the great feudal lords of Western Europe?
Thanks and please continue with your great job on the podcast, I enjoy it very much.
