A lovely, beautifully written introduction to the subject. Black and white photos, but when you consider this is not a very recent book that is ok. It helps that the pictures are beautiful

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview from the founding of the city 4 Sept. 2001
By Michael Green - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well-known Byzantine scholar gives us a concise one-volume treatment of a broad spectrum of life in the Byzantine Empire. Commerce, religion, military service, literature and art, town and country life, the administration and the art of law all find devoted chapters in this easy to read volume. For many of the smaller details, readers will have to go to Bury or Gibbon et al, but for an incisive survey into particulars, this book will serve.

4.0 out of 5 stars brief summary 23 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent overview of Byzantine art from one of the world's greatest historians. Poor B&W illustrations, however.
