intermarry? Because of the traditional fame and nobility of those lands
and races. B u t with any other nation whatsoever i t was not to be in their
power to do this, and he who dared to do i t was to be condemned as an
alien from the ranks of the Christians and subject to the anathema, as a
transgressor of ancestral laws and imperial ordinances. And that emperor
Leo aforesaid, who also, as has been described above, unlawfully and rashly,
without the consent of him who was then patriarch, took from the church
the diadem and put i t about his head and was summarily punished in full
for his wicked attempt, dared to make light of and to disregard this commandment also of that holy emperor, which, as has already been made
clear, is engraved on the holy table; and as he had once put himself outside
the fear of God and His commandments, so also he contracted an alliance i n marriage with the chagan of Chazaria, and received his daughter
to be his wife, and thereby attached great shame to the empire of the Romans
and to himself, because he annulled and disregarded the ancestral injunctions ; yet he, however, was not even an orthodox Christian, but an heretic
and a destroyer of images. And so for these his unlawful impieties he is
continually excommunicated and anthematized in the church of God, as
a transgressor and perverter of the ordinance of God and of the holy and
great emperor Constantino. For how can i t be admissible that Christians
should form marriage associations and ally themselves by marriage with
infidels, when the canon forbids i t and the whole church regards i t as alien
to and outside the Christian order? Or which of the illustrious or noble
or wise emperors of the Romans has admitted it? B u t if they reply: How
then did the lord Romanus, the emperor, ally himself in marriage with the
Bulgarians, and give his grand-daughter to the lord Peter the Bulgarian ?, this must be the defence: The lord Romanus, the emperor, was
a common, illiterate fellow, and not from among those who have been
bred up in the palace, and have followed the Roman national customs from
the beginning; nor was he of imperial and noble stock, and for this reason
in most of his actions he was too arrogant and despotic, and in this instance
he neither heeded the prohibition of the church, nor followed the commandment and ordinance of the great Constantine, but out of a temper arrogant
and self-willed and untaught in virtue and refusing to foUoW what was
