Procopius and the Sixth Century
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungNow in paperback--a magisterial assessment of the major historian of early Byzantium, by one of today's leading historians of late antiquity. Most of our understanding of the age of Justinian is based on the works of Procopius of Caesarea, the most important Greek historian of late antiquity. Many modern histories of the period virtually paraphrase his major work, the "Wars." Today, questions of how we are to reconcile the "Wars" with Procopius' two minor works-the panegyrical "Building" and the sensational "Secret History," still dominates current scholarship. Now in """Procopius," Averil Cameron, a leading specialist in ancient and medieval history, offers a full new evaluation of Procopius which will be central to any future study of the sixth century.
