Amen, brother!! Actually, any educated person in Byzantium would have been
familiar with Latin, also. However, quite a few of the root words in the
English language come from Greek, ex. chiropractor, chronology.
I have yet another question. In studying calligraphy, I have yet to
determine exactly which script would have been proper for 11th - 12th
century Byzantines. Carolingian miniscule is about the closest I can come,
but I'm not sure. Any idease out there?
Thanks, Zara Zina
