The secret history : with related texts by Procopius( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By exposing the perversion, repression, corruption, and injustice at the heart of Justinian's regime, Prokopios' The Secret History destroyed forever that emperor's reputation as the great and benevolent ruler of a vast Byzantine state. Faithfully rendered here in blunt and idiomatic English, Prokopios' tell-all is as shocking today as it was in the sixth century. Kaldellis' substantial Introduction addresses, among other topics, the historical background to The Secret History; Prokopios' literary style and major themes; and the relationships between Prokopios, Justinian, and Empress Theodora. Maps, genealogies, a glossary, and a selection of related texts enhance and support the reading

Prokops "Geheimgeschichte" ist eine chronique scandaleuse mit pikant-erotischem Inhalt. Kaiser Justinian erhält in diesem Werk eine wahre Teufelsfratze: Habgier, Misswirtschaft, willkürliche Unterdrückungsmaßnahmen, Grausamkeit, Mordlust und Versklavung prägen seine Regentschaft (527-565). Schonungslos prangert der Autor auch das sittenlose Leben von Kaiserin Theodora an und kritisiert Belisar, den berühmten Feldherrn das Kaisers. Mit Erläuterungen, einer Einführung und Literaturhinweisen von Mischa Meier und Hartmut Leppin
