Thank you for reading Part Three of The Eagle and the Swan. We’d love to hear any of your feedback regarding our publication in addition to your thoughts on our discussions related to Part Three…

  • Do you think that a just society can exist when freedom of thought and belief are banned? Will Justinian’s crackdown on heretics produce civic harmony or more instability?
  • Is torture justified to discover enemies of the state? Does the end (civic stability) justify the means (torture and execution), as Justinian argues?
  • The first blood has been spilled in the name of justice. Do you think that Theocritus and Lisander deserved death?
