Justinian presided over the period that could properly be called the beginning of Christendom, briefly reigning over a united eastern and western empire before it slid into permanent disjunction. This Cambridge Companion brings together twenty essays providing a mosaic of the political, social, religious, philosophical and literary dimensions of Justinian's empire. A sampling: 'Justinian's Constantinople,' 'Law and Legal Practice,' 'Emperors and Popes in the Sixth Century,' 'Literary Culture under Justinian,' to name but a few in this substantial and detailed contribution.

An Eighth Day View:

Dominated by the policies and personality of emperor Justinian I (527-565), this period of grand achievements and far-reaching failures witnessed the transformation of the Mediterranean world from Roman to Byzantine. Twenty specialists explore the most important aspects of the age--including the mechanics and theory of empire, warfare, urbanism, and economy. They also discuss the impact of the great plague, the codification of Roman law, and the many religious upheavals taking place at the time.
