A church in northern Israel built on a spot revered as a Christian holy site was vandalized, with chalices stolen, icons damaged and a donation box robbed, a church official said Tuesday. Church officials believe the motive for the incident at the Basilica of the Transfiguration, which took place at some point between Sunday night and Monday morning, was robbery and not religious extremism, said Wadie Abunassar, a spokesman for bishops in the Holy Land. (Jewish extremists have been responsible for previous vandalism at other Christian sites in Israel.) The police agreed with that assessment, saying it “appeared to be a criminal matter,” and not nationalistically or religiously motivated. Abunassar could not say how many chalices were sto...

In his monumental book “Life and Culture of the Byzantines,” Phaidon Koukoules describes a terrible incident that occurred in the 12th century. It was during the reign of Manuel I Komnenos, who welcomed the sultan of Iconium (Konya) to Constantinople with a horse race. One of the spectators who also hailed from Iconium wanted to pay homage to the sultan by performing a daring feat – flying the length of the track. He donned a long gown with a hoop sewn into the hem and climbed onto a tall obelisk waiting for a strong wind that would allow him to jump, fill his gown and transport him the required distance. The wind never came. The crowd grew restless, weary of waiting. It started to shout “Fly! Fly!” The poor wretch decided to make the fa...
