Thanks to this podcast, I learned new word today.
Prosopography! Thank you, always informative and entertaining.
Cool, I’d never run across the term billon before
Please, do take your time. It is always well worth the wait.
I don’t know if there are plans to do any more general overview, non-narrative episodes, but I was wondering what was going on in modern Byzantine archaeology and Byzantine studies. Are we likely to get anymore large breakthroughs or insight on Romania in the future or will it just be filling in the smaller gaps?
On a similar note, are there any commonly agreed to “really big questions” by Byzantinists that are seen as essential to answer? As you have had to do so much research and talked to many experts, do you have any questions that have come up that you think really need to be answered?
Thanks for all your hard work and hope you stay healthy.
