From the Death of Theodosius I to the Death of Justinian
This fascinating work explains the political, social, cultural and economic underpinnings of the Roman Empire in the fifth and sixth centuries.
As Rome was no longer the focus of the Empire, Constantinople rose to the fore. Bury provides an engrossing depiction of the new capital where iconic buildings such as the Hagia Sophia were being constructed.
Bury provides details on how this later Roman Empire differed from that which centered on Rome, not only internally, but also in terms of the powers that surrounded it and threatened its borders.
“An important and valuable contribution to our knowledge of a period the history of which has been too much neglected.” — Classical Review.
