The Byzantine empress Theodora in all her glory, c. 547 from San Vitale. In the "Who's the most bling-ed out person in all of Art History?" contest, she always wins. And she would have loved it that way.

#TheologyThursdays Up until 1054 AD, the Church was characterized as being one, holy, catholic, and apostolic, in which we are united in Christ, universal, and maintain our sacred traditions that have descended throughout the ages, with our religious, priests, and bishops tracing their succession to the apostles. After the schism between the Eastern [Orthodox] Church centered in Constantinople and Western [Catholic] Church centered in Rome, due to growing tensions over theological, cultural, and political differences, relations between the two have shifted back and forth for the near millennia that has passed. From 1054 to now, some Eastern Orthodox Churches have made strides in reunifying with Rome, while also keeping their sacred traditions. [The Italo-Albanian and Maronite rites never left Rome, being the only Eastern Catholic Churches to have never left.] The Catechism of the Catholic Church states the following in regards to the Eastern Catholic Churches: “From the beginning, this one Church has been marked by great diversity which comes from both the variety of God’s gifts and the diversity of those who receive them.  Within the unity of the People of God, a multiplicity of peoples and cultures is gathered together.  Among the Church’s members, there are different gifts, offices, conditions, and ways of life. “Holding a rightful place in the communion of the Church there are also particular Churches that retain their own traditions.” The great richness of such diversity is not opposed to the Church’s unity. Yet sin and the burden of its consequences constantly threaten the gift of unity. And so the Apostle has to exhort Christians to “maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (814).

If St. Paul was concerned about his own eternal salvation, should not we and our leaders also be concerned about our salvation? . “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” - Matthew 7:12-13 . . . #jesus #jesuschrist #catholic #byzantine #christian #easterncatholic #catholicmoms #moms #nationalcatholicsingles #theologyofthebody #orthodox #salvation #destruction

As I was making my way ‘home’ after Topkapi Palace, I noticed that there is no queue to get into this monument. A check with the guard and I still have ample time to wander around before it closes for the day...so why not...Haghia Sophia in the setting sun is rather befitting... . . . #haghiasophia #istanbul #istanbulturkey #turkey #byzantine #constantinople #ottoman #church #mosque #monument #heritage #civilization #middleages

The amount of work that goes on around the clock to preserve and restore the Haggia Sophia is incredible. Do they stop at restoring the Islamic features or do they keep uncovering Christian Frescos underneath... 🇹🇷. . . . . . #RaineTravels #Istanbul #Turkey #Byzantine #Islam #travel #Architecture #travelgram #instatravel #wanderlust #travelingram #PassionPassport #PostcardsFromTheWorld #TravelHappiness #photooftheday #NovemberPhotos #Wanderer #Vacation #travelstoke #Voyadi #DKTravels

⭕️ Torre di San Giovanni, Cabras, Sardinia ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ⓒ Peter Callas 2018. All Rights Reserved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The towers of San Giovanni, Torre Vecchia (or San Marco) and the Sevo (Turr'e Seu) were built between the 16th and 17th centuries, by order of Spanish authorities, along the coast of the Sinis di Cabras and the Capo di San Marco, at the base of which stands the Byzantine church of San Giovanni di Sinis. Like other Sardinian coastal towers, they were built to protect local populations from raids by Arab and Berber pirates coming from North Africa and Andalucía on the Iberian peninsula. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tower of S. Giovanni, so named for its proximity to the church of San Giovanni, was built on the top of the hill overlooking the archaeological area of Tharros. It was armed with cannons and guarded by a garrison consisting of a keeper, an artilleryman and four soldiers. The tower was built, it is now thought, with spolia from the Phoenician then Roman city of Tharros on the base of a Bronze Age nuraghe tower which sat below a later Carthaginian Punic tower. The entrance is about 8 m from the ground, reachable today through an external stairwell built in 19th century. Inside, a large circular room with a dome-shaped vault, illuminated from above by a skylight, has a trapdoor in the floor that allows access to the rainwater cistern, while around it are placed the fireplace and the "santabarbara" (powder magazine). On the terrace, accessible via an internal staircase, two lodgings were built in the second half of the 19th century when the tower was manned to suppress smuggling. The building was restored between 1987 and 1990. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Text sources: tharros.sardegna.it; coopculture.it ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ == #SanGiovannidiSinis #sinispeninsula #sinis #italy #Sardinia #italia #TorrediSanGiovanni #exvoto #TurreSeu #tharros #tower #nuraghe #punic #architecture #instagood #medievalitaly #australianartist #instatravel #photography #instago #travel #travelling #picoftheday #instaart #picoftheday #artist #byzantine #coastalbeauty
