The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the famous wonders of the ancient world, a tomb for the satrap Mausolus built in the 350s BC. The tomb was dismantled and used to buttress the fortifications of the Knights of Malta in the 1500s, causing problems for the archaologists who reconstructed the tomb from the fragments excavated in the 1850s. This paper explores the difficulties of that task and suggests an order for the sculptures set between its columns as well as the architectural design itself, showing the process by which this influential building's current structure was derived.

John of Tella’s Profession of Faith

The Legacy of a Sixth-Century Syrian Orthodox Bishop
Translation and Introduction by Volker Menze & Kutlu Akalın
ISBN: 978-1-59333-843-5
John became bishop of Tella in 519, but left for exile only two years later when Justin I enforced the Council of Chalcedon which Syrian Orthodox Christians refused to accept. John became one of Justinian’s most dangerous ecclesiastical opponents by ordaining thousands of deacons and priests who formed the first generation of the Syrian Orthodox hierarchy. In the present text John lays out his faith in a way which gives an inside view of how a non-Chalcedonian bishop of the sixth century located himself and his co-religionists within the Christian tradition and how he understood the foundation of the Church.
