Um click registrado por mim, desse belo fim da tarde de domingo! 📸
A energia da natureza proporciona um encontro pleno
Pleno no sentido de renovação espiritual e física
Tal renovação necessária para se encerrar ciclos
E ampliar horizontes, frente a novas percepções
O passado em sua plenitude, outrora marcante
Hoje é apenas retratado por marcas repletas de ondulações
Vestígios da nossa história, que constituem o nosso eu! 🍀🌊🌊🌊🍀

Justinian's Plague: How Rome Survived
The over a year during which the Roman Empire was ravaged by the Plague of Justinian was a dark shadow, but at length the state survived it. The first promising news Procopius reports is how three pregnant women survived in containment, albeit their infant children perished, and it was vice versa for a fourth woman. Also, Procopius tells us that if the swelling on the body ended in a discharge of pus, then it was a sign of returning health and the victims to whom this happened survived universally. Even so, activity in Constantinople came to a halt, and the city's population sank dramatically.
Justinian soon began taking measures to control the plague. He sent his own palace guard to contain the city, and an official named Theodorus with a load of money to finance the operation and lead it. Theodorus also made expenditures from his own purse to help the situation, and Procopius tells us that all of Constantinople came together in a show of unity to combat this threat. Eventually the city's tombs were filled, so the Romans had to resort to burying the dead in mass graves outside the walls. According to Procopius, Theodorus had the roofs of the towers at Sycaea removed so they could be filled with corpses and held there, but this caused consternation among the public.
The plague lasted in Constantinople seriously for three months, before gradually ending over a fourth. It is impossible to be certain of how many people died. Relatively quickly, the plague seems to have simply run its course and died down, going from a pandemic to a localized disease. The plague hit the urban and rural parts of the empire hard, although the former suffered more heavily in the cramped conditions of the cities. Fortunately, the rural communities were well off enough for the Roman agriculture to survive, overall, intact, and not interrupt empire-wide food shipping. The actions of the Imperial government in containing the plague, particularly in the seriously hit Constantinople, also doubtless helped.
