The letters of Psellos : cultural networks and historical realities by Michael Jeffreys( Book )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Letters of Psellos' is the first detailed study of the correspondence of Michael Psellos, a leading Byzantine intellectual, politician, and writer of the eleventh century. Psellos' corpus of over 500 letters represents a historical source of great significance for the study of society and culture of the time: literary masterpieces in and of themselves, yet often complex and difficult to understand in their entirety, they not only rebound with subtlety and humour, but also offer invaluable information on myriad subjects ranging from the political culture of Byzantium and its civil administration to social codes, religious beliefs, and popular culture.--Provided by the publisher
Iacobi Monachi Epistulae by Iakovos( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the first edition of the Letters of Iakovos Monachos addressed to the sevastokratorissa Eirene, sister-in-law of the Emperor Manuel I Komnenos (1143-1180). Writing in the late 1140s, Iakovos offers spiritual advice to Eirene, and affirms his support for her in times of trouble. This is a rare example of the correspondence of a Byzantine spiritual father and provides tantalizing glimpses into Eirene's difficult life. Both are significant figures in Byzantine cultural history, Iakovos as the author of the renowned Kokkinobaphos Homilies on the Theotokos and Eirene as a noted literary patroness. The Letters' style is striking. They are constructed almost entirely from a mosaic of quotations from the Cappadocian Fathers and other patristic authors, the most recent being Niketas of Herakleia. Very little can be attributed to the pen of Iakovos himself, leaving questions about his motivation but also incidental insights into the holdings of a monastic library. The Letters are preserved in a handsome contemporary manuscript, very probably a presentation copy made for Eirene or her heirs, and two fragmentary late sixteenth-century copies. The edition is accompanied by the usual apparatuses and indices, and a full introduction discussing the transmission of the text and setting out the context for Eirene's life and the correspondence. The book will be of interest to specialists in Byzantine spirituality, Byzantine epistolography, the history of the twelfth century, women's history, and Byzantine literacy."--Publisher's website

Prosopography of the Byzantine world 2016 by Michael Jeffreys( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A definitive Who's Who of the Byzantine world presenting information concerning every individual mentioned either in Byzantine sources or relevant to Byzantine affairs. A full account of the sources studied, together with the names of the scholars responsible, will be found here; this also serves as an index of the coverage of the project, which is a prosopographical reading of Byzantine Sources, 1025-1180. In this new edition materials have been added and enhanced, principally for the 12th century; the most significant additions are from further work on William of Tyre and Nicetas Choniates, and substantial new materials from the Chronicle of Ibn al-Athir. Such an undertaking can never be complete, as new discoveries are constantly being made; while PBW should be examined for what it contains, it should never be assumed that what it does not contain does not exist
