Gibbon Chapter LXIII: The East in the early 14th century

A short chapter, in which the restored Byzantine empire staggers on, the emperors buffeted internally by the Church and externally by the militant and powerful trader cities of Genoa and Venice. Notes on meditation and a couple of points of translation.
