  • Byzanz 565-1453by Peter Schreiner

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 35.00

    Die 3. Auflage von Peter Schreiners Standardwerk ist nicht nur vollkommen überarbeitet und auf den aktuellen Stand der Forschung gebracht, sie ist gleichsam ein neues Buch.

  • Knotenpunkt Byzanzby Andreas Speer; Philipp Steinkrüger

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 293.00

    Dieser Band wirft ein neues Licht auf Byzanz - als geographischen, aber vor allem als kulturellen Knotenpunkt. Denn wie kaum eine andere Region ist Byzantium über gut ein Jahrtausend durch seine ebenso zentrale wie fragile geographische Lage, aber auch durch sein Prestige wichtig für die Begegnung von Kulturen, Personen und Institutionen... more...

  • La “descrizione dei tempi” all’alba dell’espansione islamicaby Maria Conterno

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    During the VII-VIII centuries Byzantine historiography is supposed to have remained silent, since no source dating to that period has come down to us. West Syriac historiography is believed to have been quite scanty as well because, according to Lawrence Conrad's theory, the only source that later Syriac chroniclers had for this period... more...

  • Byzantiumby John Haldon

    The History Press 2005; US$ 7.99

    John Haldon's beautifully illustrated book tracks the checkered history of an oriental enigma, a 'lost empire' which stood for a 1,000 years against the might of Islam. He retells the story of the cycle of conquest and re-conquest of its lands by Goths, Arabs, Slavs, and Crusaders, and finally its complete destruction by the Ottoman Turks in 1453. more...

  • Byzantine Mattersby Averil Cameron

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 23.95 US$ 21.79

    For many of us, Byzantium remains "byzantine"—obscure, marginal, difficult. Despite the efforts of some recent historians, prejudices still deform popular and scholarly understanding of the Byzantine civilization, often reducing it to a poor relation of Rome and the rest of the classical world. In this book, renowned historian Averil Cameron presents... more...
