The Early Byzantine Historians is the first original study of every significant Byzantine historian from Eusebius of Caesarea (c.255-339) to Theophylact Simocatta (c.585-after 641?). Individually and as a group, these authors had a decisive influence on Byzantine culture and modern perceptions of Byzantine history.
WARREN TREADGOLD is National Endowment for the Humanities Professor of Byzantine Studies at Saint Louis University, and author of many books and articles on Byzantine history and literature, including A History of the Byzantine State and Society (1997) and A Concise History of Byzantium (2001).
