Example text

Theodora insisted on this tribute being paid to her too, on being called despoina (mistress), and even, it is said, on receiving ambassadors from Persia and other countries as if she were the mistress of the empire. 57 Further criticisms, that she made serious matters a ‘subject for laughter as if on the stage’, are doubtless also an exaggeration. 58 In the case that Procopius cites, a noble official of long standing asked Theodora to ensure that the debt owed to him by one of Theodora’s servants be repaid.

33 (AD 534) lays down that no woman, free or slave, can be forced onto the stage, and that a free woman who has been an actress has the right of marrying a man of any rank without the need to supplicate the emperor. 36 Nov. J. 9 (AD 559) rules that women are not to be imprisoned on charges of debt; sureties are to be found instead. If a woman has to be held on a major criminal charge she should be sent to a convent or guarded by reliable women for her own protection, in case she should suffer rape or other ill-treatment.

Public opinion considered that the imperial couple deliberately fostered the appearance of disagreement in this regard to keep both sides happy,69 but though the pair may have agreed to appear to ‘divide and rule’, there is little doubt that Theodora acted from conviction, albeit with Justinian’s sanction. Before she was empress, perhaps in 523, John of Ephesos relates that Mare, the monophysite bishop of Amida, who had been banished to Petra, sent his deacon and notary Stephen to Constantinople to intercede for him.
