Description
 

In this unique book, Judith Herrin unveils the riches of the ancient civilization of Byzantium. Herrin discusses all faces of Byzantine culture and so society, walking the reader through the comples ceremonies of the imperial court; the transcendent beauty and power of the church of Hagia Sophia, and the fascinating worlds of asceties, eunuchs, courtesans, and artisans. Avoiding a standard chronological account of the Byzantine Empires millennium-long history, she identifies the fundamental questions about Byzantium-What it was, and what special significance it holds for us today.
