Theoderic in Italy by John Moorhead( Book )
15 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The career of Theoderic the Ostrogoth is one of the great success stories of antiquity. From being a ruler of a barbarian people wandering around the Balkans, he became king in Italy (493-526) and established one of the most powerful of the post-Roman states. Thanks to its ample documentation, the Italy of Theoderic allows detailed examination of a period on the frontiers of ancient and medieval, Roman and barbarian. Thanks to his success in attracting the attention of some of the major literary figures of the time, new light is cast on Boethius, Cassiodorus, and Ennodius when they are considered in the context of their connections with the government. Yet Theoderic's reign, so praised by contemporaries, ended amid tension and discord. In this study, Dr Moorhead considers whether the principles in accordance with which he governed entailed the impermanence of his achievement
Gregory the Great by John Moorhead( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gregory's life culminated in his holding the office of pope (590 - 604). He is generally regarded as one of the outstanding figures in the long line of popes, and by the late ninth century had come to be known as "the Great". Along with Ambrose, Jerome, and Augustine, he played a critical role in the history of his time. During the middle ages his intellectual influence was second only to that of Augustine
The Roman Empire divided, 400-700 by John Moorhead( Book )
25 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 400 the mighty Roman Empire was almost as large as it had ever been; within three centuries, advances by Germanic peoples in western Europe, Slavs in eastern Europe and Arabs around the eastern and southern shores of the Mediterranean had brought about the loss of most of its territory. Ranging from Britain to Mesopotamia, this book explores the changes that resulted from these movements. It shows the different paths away from the classical past that were taken, and how the relatively unified civilization of the ancient Mediterranean gave place to the very different civilizations that c
Victor of Vita : history of the Vandal persecution by Victor( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Among the peoples who occupied the territories of the Roman Empire in the West in the fifth century, the Vandals are notorious for their persecution of the Catholic inhabitants of Africa. By far the fullest narrative of their doings prior to the time of Justinian is that provided by Victor of Vita, who in 484 wrote the greater part of the work here translated. But Victor does not merely provide an account of the activities of a persecuting people; his work is revelatory of the perspectives of an African Christianity which could look on the activities of the Vandals as merely one chapter in a long history of persecution."--Book cover
Justinian by John Moorhead( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The reign of Justinian (527--65) was a key phase in the transition from the Roman empire of classical times to the Byzantine empire of the Middle Ages. Justinian himself, born of peasant stock in a provincial backwater, was one of the greatest rulers yet, despite prodigious achievements, he remained an outsider in the sophisticated society of Constantinople. Here, John Moorhead reinterprets Justinian as man and monarch, together with his formidable empress, the ex-actress Theodora, and assesses the evidence from their time for the evolution of a distinctively medieval world
Ambrose : church and society in the late Roman world by John Moorhead( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here is an account - political, cultural and theological in its concerns - of the life and thought of St. Ambrose, bishop of Milan from 374 to 395." "John Moorhead sets Ambrose's life in its full historical and theological context; he discusses his relationships with the leading secular and religious figures of his day; and he explores the origins and impact of his thought." "Perhaps most valuably of all, he provides a meaningful introduction to Ambrose's writings - their occasion, character and concerns - for non-specialists, few of whom are likely to be familiar with them at first hand."--Jacket
