Abstract

In 459 Emperor Leo I issued a law forbidding the introduction of the Cross as well as of relics of martyrs into public buildings and places of entertainment. A neglected legal scholion, probably by the antecessor Thalelaeus, throws light on the historical background of this interdiction: an otherwise unattested earthquake in Emesa led to the Cross and relics of martyrs being introduced into the town's arena for the celebration of Mass.
