Byzantium - Byzantine Silks

Byzantine Greek. Byzantine style. Empress Theodora in Byzantine silk. Eirene - Byzantine. Byzantine. The Annunciation - Byzantine icon. Vestments - Byzantine silk. Winged horses - Sogdian textiles, the Silk Road. Palmyra, land of Queen Zenobia. Woman from Palmyra where there was a Manichaean monastery. Zenobia`s invasions spread the religion. Manichaeism had an outreach of missionaries. "Cathar Origins: Where did Catharism in the Languedoc Come From? Saint Augustine of Hippo, an ex Manichaean, trampling other Manichaeans underfoot." The Manichaeans were persecuted in the time of the Byzantines.
