The Oxford history of Byzantium( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides detailed coverage of Byzantium from its Roman beginnings to the fall of Constantinople and assimilation into the Turkish Empire. Essays and illustrations portray the emergence and development of a distinctive civilization, covering the period from the 4th century to the mid-15th century. The authors outline the political history of the Byzantine state and bring to life the evolution of a colorful culture. In AD 324, the Emperor Constantine the Great chose Byzantion, an ancient Greek colony at the mouth of the Thracian Bosphorus, as his imperial residence. He renamed the place "Constaninopolis nova Roma", "Constantinople, the new Rome" and the city (modern Istanbul) became the Eastern capital of the later Roman empire. The new Rome outlived the old and Constantine's successors continued to regard themselves as the legitimate emperors of Rome, just as their subjects called themselves Romaioi, or Romans long after they had forgotten the Latin language

The homilies of Photius, Patriarch of Constantinople by Photius( Book )

23 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historical role of Photius has, all too often, been viewed only as it concerned the rift between the Western and Eastern Churches. He has been regarded either as the "Father of the Schism" or as the staunch defender of Greek Orthodoxy against the encroachments of Rome. It is hoped that by presenting the Homilies of Photius in English translation these one-sided views may to some extent be corrected. For, surprising though it may appear, we shall not find in the Homilies a single reference to the Papacy. When they are not purely didactic, the Homilies are dominated by such topics as the suppression of the Iconoclast movement, the re-establishment of sacred painting, the propagation of the true faith among heretics, and the quelling of internal division in the Church of Constantinople. -From the Introduction
Materials for the study of the mosaics of St. Sophia at Istanbul by Cyril A Mango( Book )

19 editions published between 1960 and 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chronicle of Theophanes : an English translation of anni mundi 6095-6305 (A.D. 602-813) by Theophanes( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first complete translation into English (or any other modern language) of the Chronicle of Theophanes Confessor (d. 818), which covers the period AD 284-813 and is one of the most important sources of Byzantine history, that of the Arabs under the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties and of other neighbouring peoples (notably the Bulgarians). The Chronicle is a compilation of earlier sources, many of them now lost: in order to use it critically the historian needs to know what texts Theophanes had in front of him and how he handled them. These have consequently been indicated in the text in so far as they can be identified. Full annotation has also been provided on points of historical and topographical interest. The career of Theophanes, the character of the Chronicle, its manuscript tradition, and the use of earlier sources are discussed in the Introduction
