I think his biggest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. It is still standing today. It is amazing he had it built in six years with no construction equipment like cranes.
I agree with you Nathan. I agree because the Hagia Sophia is awesome, and to think that it was built without cranes in just 6 years is truly amazing
I agree with you Nathan. It was probably his biggest accomplishment because it is still there today.
I agree with both Jessica and Nathan. The Hagia Sophia is still standing over hundreds of years. I find it awesome that Justinian built something so beautiful.
I agree with you. 6 years is very little time and they did it with no construction equipment.
I agree with you Nathan. But I think it was built by constructors and it was built in twenty years. It is still amazing though.
I agree with Nathan. He built the Hagia Sophia in six year without cranes. It is really amazing.
I find it funny how your class all focused on him completing the Hagia Sophia in 6 years while 1A focused on it being an accomplishment because it showed his and God's power. I could not agree with you guys more. Having it built in 6 years without modern technology is truly amazing. I dont think it could have been built that quickly today.
I completely agree Nathan I said the same thing. It's unbelievable that it was completed in only 6 years without electricity!
I think that Justinians greatest accomplishment was when he built the Hagia Sophia. I think this because it is the largest unsupported dome in the whole world. Also, when he reunited the empire I think that this was a great accomplishment.
I agree with Kyle because Justinian helped reunite the empire. It is a very big dome too. It is a big accomplishment.
I agree with Kyle because the Hagia Sophia was a massive church and built in six years is amazing. This was definitely his greatest accomplishment.
I agree with Kyle on the Hagia Sophia being his greatest accomplishment. It's really cool that the largest of something was a building that was built with no modern equipment. Also, Reuniting the empire was a good accomplishment too.
I agree with Kyle it is a major accomplishment ,it is still standing today.They had to use scaffolding to build because they didn't have electricity.
I think that Justinian's biggest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. One reason I think this was because it is still standing today and people can visit it today. Also, it only took six years to rebuild the church.
I think that Emperor Justinian's greatest accomplishment was, The Hagia Sophia. I find it amazing that someone built a cathedral in just six years! Especially without the technology that we have today. Just image building something without cranes. That would be really hard, and so much work.
I agree that the Hagia Sophia was a great accomplishment, but I don't think it was his greatest accomplishment. He built multiple amazing things.
I agree because imagine how many hard, long hours it would take. The Hagia Sophia is definitely something to be proud of.
I think that Emperor Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. It was very impressive that he got the workers to finish it within six years. It was also a good symbolism that he was the boss and that he got all his orders from God.
I agree because it is impressive that he got it done in 6 years. It is also a very important place to alot of people.
I agree with Tiffany, his greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. It is also like he got the orders to do it from god, because everything Justinian did he said was because of god and all that. It was also symbolism for his power he says he's gotten from god. The coolest part is probably that he did it in 6 years! Either way it was amazing Justinian made this!
Justinian's greatest accomplishment is the Hagia Sophia. One is that it took six years without any cranes. Also you can still visit today in Istanbul.
I think that Justinian's greatest accomplishment was him making the Justinian code and giving woman rights. By doing this, he may have had some upset citizens, but he made the majority happy, by giving woman rights along with making new rights that weren't outdated.
I agree with Abby because "Yes" the Justinian's code made some people mad but you did make a big differences in the empire.Also because the old law was old and I believe Justinian thought it was time for some new changes with the law.
I agree with Abby. Although the Hagia Sophia is something to be proud of rights are probably better. Purely because it's rare that women at that time had any rights and other cultures have created impressive structures as well.
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment is the Hagia Sophia. I think this because the church is a worship place for many Byzantines to worship God and Justinian. It also took a lot of work to build and i think it should be a very good accomplishment.
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. I think this because it was made in 6 years. The Hagia Sophia also the entire building wasn't made with modern technology
I agree with you Pablo. It is cool to think such a big church was made in six years without modern technology.
Justinian's greatest accomplishment is Hagia Sophia. It is one of the largest churches that still stands today. It was build in 6 years with 10,000 workers.
I agree with you Jason the Hagia Sophia was built fast. It is the biggest cathedral.
I think his greatest accomplishment was that he gained lots of land. The land they gained was huge. They also let other cultures in which lets a great population in the Empire.
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. He built it in 6 years, which is very much amazing! He also got decorative and valuable material from other places, like Egypt gave him gold for example, to make such wonderful art. It is very crazy that it was preserved and still standing today even! Though this over all is just such an amazing cathedral, it would be an interesting trip to see it in person!
I agree with Matthew.the reason why is that it took 6 years to built and also yhat it was one of the tallest churches in the world and he decided to rebuilt it.
Matthew I completely agree. I also find it amazing that a church that took 6 years to build still stands today. I think that this was Justinian's greatest accomplishment
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment was making the Justinian Code because not only his people had rights women had rights too Because in earlier times women didn't have rights and I think this is one of his greatest accomplishments because everyone is gaining power at one point.Not only that he built Hagua Siphia which is a Famous Church Today Why? I think this is a great accomplishment because it was built in 6 years.For the Haiga Sophia to be a BIG Church It was a very short amount of time to be built in 6 years.
I think when he made the taxes.The first thing is that he made taxes for the Bosporus Strait because people came threw there all the time.Also at the chariot races but that killed the empire.
I think one of Justinian's greatest accomplishments is simply ruling his empire during the bubonic plague. There was be so much death at that time and it must have been a huge period of struggle for him. Granted after it his empire would never the same but still it lived, it didn't get conquered. However I would definitely say that the Hagia Sophia would be Justinian's greatest thing he ever built. It after all was massive and it had the largest unsupported dome in the world.
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. I think this because it was massive and it only took six years to build. Also, it is still standing today which is amazing.
I think Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. It was a massive church, had competitions between worker and worker. Also it only took 6 years to rebuild the Hagia Sophia
I think emperor Justinian's greatest accomplishment was the Hagia Sophia. After the Nika Rebellion, Justinian needed to show he still had enough power to proceed with his plans of makin his empire greater. He built the Hagia Sophia to show his power, and he got what he wanted
I think that the hagia sophia is justinian's greatest accomplishment because it only took six years to build without any electricity. Also, I think that because it was the biggest dome of that time. Also it is still standing today and now a museum.
I agree with you. But since they didn't have electric they did not have to input wires and switches.
Justinan's greatest accomplishment was probably the Hagia Sophia because of the story behind it.The Hagia Sophia was built in six years and is still around. It's cool to think about how one worker went home with extra pay some nights because Justinian assigned workers tasks and turned it into a race, whoever finished first won the race and got the most pay. Also the Hagia Sophia is a symbol of not only Justinian's power, but more importantly, God's.
I agree that his best accomplishment was his church. I think that turning the work into a race was a great idea. I think that they should use idea today, but probably what would happen is that people would do bad work.
I think that the Justinian code is Justinian's greatest accomplishment. I think this was because some of the laws that he made are still used today. Also because Justinian and Theodora made them together.
I agree that his code was great but I think that the Hagia Sophia was better. I think this because it was massive and built in very short time. But why was this such a accomplishment? Because it inspired other monuments to be built.
I think that the Hagia Sophia was Justinian's best accomplishment because he built it very fast and it was massive. The Hagia Sophia was a massive church that had a dome as a ceiling. He built it in 6 years, which is incredible because they didn't have any machines. Despite the fact that they didn't have to add any water pipes or electric wires, I still think that this was an amazing build for that time period.
