Nice job! I rewrote Constantinople/Alexandria sentence because Alex WAS the pre-eminent see of the East, Constantinople just wanted to be (and didn't GET to be until well after the Islamic conquest of Egypt). --MichaelTinkler

I'm worried about: His reign in Constantinpole meant an end to lavish entertainments. Prescriptive preaching doesn't always (ahem) work. See the career of Savanarola. He may have gotten some reaction, but I'm sure there was lots of resistance. --MichaelTinkler

OK, I think I fixed that now - aw

I've done revision 3 before completing 2, because of a book-flow problem! --aw

MT: I rewrote that sentence again. partly because it didn't make sense ("between" had no gramatical subject) and partly because i'm not convinced that Alex was recognised by everyone as the preminence Eastern see - feel free to show my error thou! --AW
