With Alexios constantly at war in Europe during the 1080s he could only deal with Anatolia through diplomacy. He searched in vain for allies who could stabilise the situation but by 1095 realised he would have to turn West for the manpower needed to campaign in person. For the Romans who actually lived in Anatolia the situation had a Wild West vibe.

    Hi Robin,

    Off topic but you might be interested. Some acoustic engineers did an audio mapping of the Hagia Sofia and created a profile to change any music you like to what it would sound like when performed there. Then they applied that to an Eastern Orthodox liturgy so that you can hear what it would have sounded ca. 1400 AD.
