{April 4, 2011}   Theodora: The ‘Empress from the Brothel’ Rises to Power ~ April 4, 527

Theodora lived in an era of huge changes in the church, language and statehood. What had been Roman was about to become Byzantine, and the eastern regions around Syria, the Levant and Egypt were clamouring to use their own languages, hinting at self-determination. Just 20 years after Theodora’s death the Prophet Muhammad would be born.
