Just as revisions of our view of the Middle Ages have proceeded apace, so have those of Byzantium. The derision of Gibbon, Harnack, and others has given way to vastly more positive evaluations, due to the researches of such as Runciman, Ostrogorsky, Hussey, and the author of our present study, who for years was professor of Byzantine studies at the Sorbonne in Paris. This collection of biographical sketches illuminates the lives of figures that represent almost the whole course of Byzantine history, from Athenais in the fifth century to Anna of Savoy in the fourteenth, including Theodora, Irene, Anna Comnena, and others in between. History personalized through the lens of biography. Very Good. Some wear on dustjacket edges.
