about

Originally published by Weidenfeld and Nicholson, 1966.

Focusing on the middle period in Byzantium's eleven-century history as its most imperial era, Jenkins considers a number of events that changed the course of world history: the repulse of the Saracens from the gates of Constantinople in 678 and 718, the reign of Michael III, which marked the greatness of Middle Byzantium, the resolution in 843 of the quarrel over images, the conversion of the Bulgar Khan Boris to Christianity, and a splendid revival of painting, which culminated in the apse mosaic of St Sophia.

At the time of his death in 1969, Romilly Jenkins was Professor of Byzantine History and Director of Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library of Harvard University.

From Our Editors

The middle period of Byzantium's eleven-century history was its most imperial, and perhaps its most important. In Byzantium: The Imperial Centuries AD 610-1071, Romilly Jenkins considers the era's major events: the repulse of the Saracens from the gates of Constantinople, the reign of Michael III, the conversion of the Bulgar Khan Boris to Christianity, the splendid revival of painting culminating in the apse mosaic of St. Sophia - events which changed the course of world history.
