Did you know that in the year 1004 Maria Argyropoulina, the Greek niece of the Byzantine Emperor, brought a set of gold forks with her to Venice as part of her dowry. When she used them at the wedding feast, she was condemned by the Italian clerics for her lavishness. She died of the plague two years later, and one rather zealous priest noted that God was condemning her, for she wouldn't even deign to touch her food with her fingers.
As one blogger put it: "Doomed by God for using a fork. Life was harsh in the 11th century."*
