Making Bishop Theodora Male

  1. 1. Making Bishop Theodora Male
  2. 2. 8th -century mosaic in St. Zeno’s chapel in Rome
  3. 3. Four women depicted.
  4. 4. A square halo meant she was still alive.
  5. 5. In Latin, EPISCOPA is the feminine form of the masculine EPISCOPUS, or “Bishop.”
  6. 6. “THEODO” is masculine-gendered in Latin . . . . . . but it is not a man’s name in Latin.
  7. 7. Scholars believe originally this name was “THEDORA”— a woman’s name. Later, lighter-colored gold tesserae covered up the “RA.” This made the female bishop’s name masculine.
