Halaman 243 - Constantino the Great, was the work of Justinian, and shortly after its completion was destroyed by an earthquake. It, however, rose with redoubled splendour from its ruins, was completed in the thirty-sixth year of that monarch's reign, and even its present degenerate and neglected state might have justified his exclamation of " Glory be to God, who has thought me worthy to accomplish so great a work.
