Product Overview

The Early Byzantine Historians is the first original study of every significant Byzantine historian from Eusebius of Caesarea (c.255-339) to Theophylact Simocatta (c.585-after 641?). Written for general readers as well as professional scholars, and filled with new discoveries and interpretations, the book presents a remarkable portrait gallery of forty historians. Many were gifted writers, incisive thinkers, engaging personalities, or all three at once; two of them, Ammianus Marcellinus and Procopius of Caesarea, ranked with the greatest historians of all time. Individually and as a group, these authors had a decisive influence on Byzantine culture and modern perceptions of Byzantine history.
