An abridged version of the two-volume Scenarios of Power, covering Peter the Great to Nicholas II.

A more affordable, though less detailed, alternative to the original publication.

The mysterious mosaics of the room over the vestibule.  Why is no one permitted access? Have these 9th century mosaics been destroyed?

Mosaic of Leo VI from the Narthex of Hagia Sophia

This mosaic stands above the main Imperial door from the inner narthex into the sanctuary of Hagia Sophia.  Leo was married too many times and this mosaic was a result of his problems with the Church.
