Wedding Agreement Epub

24In the Roman Empire, marriage was an agreed agreement that presupposed that the spouses had the same personal status and that both the brides and their legal guardians had given their consent.21 Similarly, in the Byzantine Empire, marriage was a private contractual arrangement for several centuries, at least as far as its validity in the eyes of the state is concerned, and until the end of the ninth century, the way marriage was concluded varied.

Theophilus and Theodora left during Mass, immediately after the blessing of the marriage, and returned only for the marriage crowns to be applied by the patriarch. The Stephanoi, as they were called, were most likely a golden net that could be worn on imperial crowns.
