“This is the revised English translation from the original work in Russian of the history of the Great Byzantine Empire.  It is the most complete and thorough work on this subject.  From it we get a wonderful panorama of the events and developments of the struggles of early Christianity, both western and eastern, with all of its remains of the wonderful productions of art, architecture, and learning.”—Southwestern Journal of Theology

From Our Editors

'This is the revised English translation form the original work in Russian of the history of the Great Byzantine Empire. It is the most complete and thorough work on this subject.' --'Southwestern Journal of Theology' 0299809269Vasiliev's survey of Byzantine history is unique in the field. It is complete, including a sketch of literature and art for each period, while all other works of the kind, even the most recent, either are restricted to a shorter time, or neglect some side of eastern civilization. 0299970167 Historical distance at long last allows for a dispassionate evaluation of the political, social, and cultural reality that was the empire of the Hohenzollern. The fact that its foremost successor state, the Federal Republic of Germany, occupies only half the territory of the Wilhelminian monarchy--though t supports just about the same population--and that it has an altogether different social structure and pursues the policies of a medium-size power within the context of a transatlantic alliance makes an open-minded assessment all the more feasible.

Editorial Reviews

“Vasiliev’s survey of Byzantine history is unique in the field.  It is complete, including a sketch of literature and art for each period, while all other works of the kind, even the most recent, either are restricted to a shorter time, or neglect some side of eastern civilization. . . . This widely known and highly prized History of the Byzantine Empire needs not the commendation of any reviewer.  Written originally in Russian, it has been turned into English, French, Spanish, and Turkish.  It has always been a favorite with students.”—The Catholic Historical Review
