By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on August 1, 2006
Format: Paperback
Obolensky gives us a scholarly, well footnoted discourse on the interactions between Byzantium and the Slavic peoples. He describes how a multiethnic and multicultural interaction that went on for centuries. As Byzantium turned its focus north and east, into what is now eastern Europe and Russia.

The use of Greek Orthodox missionaries to convert those peoples led to a great influence by the patriarchs in Constantinople over the Dukedom of Moscow, and an enduring imprint on Russian culture and language.

We see many struggles with the Ottomans, which would ultimately lead to the downfall of Byzantium. But its legacy lived on in the Slavic realms. The book should also help you appreciate why Moscow traditionally called itself the Third Rome. Constantinople was the Second Rome. And when it fell, many refugees fled to Moscow, which then took upon itself to assume that mantle.
