The Oxford history of Byzantium ( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,409 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.

Byzantine architecture by Cyril A Mango ( Book )
33 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 1,300 libraries worldwide
Byzantine architecture has its roots in the evolving Christian traditions of the late 3rd and 4th centuries, and the early churches were modelled on the secular basilica. Constantine's renaming of Byzantium as Constantinople and inauguration of the city as capital of the eastern Roman empire in 330 is generally taken as the starting point of the Byzantine era. Cyril Mango's highly original study shows us how the thread of development in style and form was maintained over a thousand years, and how Byzantine - style buildings spread into eastern Europe and parts of western Europe, from Italy to Russia, as well as dominating the Near East for centuries - above all in Constantinople. The role of the architect, the.

The chronicle of Theophanes Confessor : Byzantine and Near Eastern history, AD 284-813 by Theophanes ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 263 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.
