Byzantium: The Empire of the New Rome
Cyril Mango (au)
Founded by the emperor Constantine the Great in AD 324 as ‘the new Rome’, the city of Constantinople was to become the center of the powerful, vast, heterogeneous Byzantine world. Until Constantinople fell to the Turks in 1453, the city was the capital of an empire which stretched, at one time, from Gibraltar in the west to the banks of the Euphrates in the east. Astoundingly rich, this civilization left behind it a legacy of magnificent art, architecture & literature, inspired by orthodox Christianity. Prof. Mango’s lively & authoritative survey covers all the fundamental aspects of Byzantine culture & way of life -- peoples, languages, society, the economy & trade, the disappearance & revival of cities, monasticism & education. Reprint of 1980 edition.
