"There was great slaughter at Chrysopolis." -Zosimus, Byzantine historian
September 18, 324- The forces of Constantine the Great defeat his former colleague turned rival Licinius at the Battle of Chrysopolis. After this victory, Constantine was sole ruler of both halves of the Roman Empire, and founded a new capital for it at Byzantium. He named his city Nova Roma, but it would later be renamed Constantinople in his honor.

Indigo… Photographer Antonella Arismendi

Facebook

Her work has always been especially inspired by spirituality and astrology, and the latter is what inspired her fourth story for Ben Trovato: Indigo.

I am so fascinated by astrology that it’s a bit hard to avoid the influence it has on my artwork,” she confirms, adding: “- The message in Indigo is simple: we are always looking for answers. There are other realities we can’t see, we are just a reflex from the space on earth, like the Kybalion says: as above so below.

Hidden Book
This unusual shot I took some time ago when I visited the Abbey of Rolduc, in the south of the Netherlands. While my finger carefully lifts the loose cover of a sixteenth-century printed book, you are shown the inside of the binding, where the backs of the quires are held together by a horizontal strip of parchment. What’s so special about this scene is the fact that this strip was cut from a handwritten medieval manuscript - old-fashioned and therefore ideal for cutting up and recycling, binders thought. And so this early-fifteenth-century handwritten Dutch Bible found itself being sliced and diced. “I loved once,” the exposed text reads with a flair of irony and tragedy (Ic hebbe gheminnet). My finger allowed the strip to peek at the world again for the first time in centuries: that thought alone makes research of these fragments a thrilling activity.
Pic (my own): Rolduc Abbey, printed book in the attic library. More on fragments in this blog post.
