Book Description

January 15, 2009 0199252467 978-0199252466
The Oxford Handbook of Byzantine Studies presents discussions by leading experts on all significant aspects of this diverse and fast-growing field. The Oxford Handbook of Byzantine Studies deals with the history and culture of the Byzantine Empire, the eastern half of the Late Roman Empire, from the fourth to the fourteenth century. Its centre was the city formerly known as Byzantium, refounded as Constantinople in 324 CE, the present-day Istanbul. Under its emperors, patriarchs, and all-pervasive bureaucracy Byzantium developed a distinctive society: Greek in language, Roman in legal system, and Christian in religion. Byzantium's impact in the European Middle Ages is hard to over-estimate, as a bulwark against invaders, as a meeting-point for trade from Asia and the Mediterranean, as a guardian of the classical literary and artistic heritage, and as a creator of its own magnificent artistic style.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hefty Reference in a growing field. July 4, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been a reader in the field of Byzantine History for a long time now. As such, I have found that my Oxford Dictionary Of Byzantium was starting to show its age.This Handbook looked like a very good chance to fill in some blanks, and it does so quite well. The entries in this work are more in depth and are written by scholars working in those areas. This makes it both helpful as a reference and useful for a source for reading up on matters or approaches new to me. If one is really looking for a more current reference in the field, this is a text to consider.
