Episode 4 of our Medioevo series is ready for you to read and listen to, and today we have a little art history: two famous Ravenna mosaics portraying Byzantine emperor Giustiniano (Italian spelling) and his wife Teodora.
N.b. Our writer forgot to mention that the Teodora in the mosaic is the wife/Empress mentioned in the first paragraph, but one look at the picture makes it pretty obvious.
And oops! There’s a slip up in the audio, too. A word that was written is not the very similar-looking word that is read. Sorry about that, but think of it as a test of your listening skills (if anyone can’t hear it, leave a comment below the article and I, or another club member, will tell you what the mistake is.)
And a second N.b. – if you haven’t yet begun the Summer Series, or have made a start, but are falling behind because you’re busy surfing, or changing baby’s diaper, not to worry! All of the articles I’m publishing this week, and for the next eight weeks, will be linked to from our History page.
