"Theodora Die Große dedizierte ich meinen Herrn und Erlöser, Jesus
Christus. In Seinem Namen stieg die größte Kaiserin der Antike zu den Höhen des Erfolgs. Ich schrieb diese Geschichte in Seinem Namen;
Während ich in Seiner Kommunion-Linie wartete,
ich die Inspiration von diesem erstaunlichen Edelstein einer
Lebensgeschichte fühlte." -- Drehbuchautor, Dr. Larry E. Johnson
