A Short History of Byzantium is a condensed version of author John Julius Norwich s three volume work It covers the Byzantine Empire from its founding by Constantine the Great in AD 330 through its final destruction by the Turks in 1453I began the book with little knowledge about the Byzantine Empire with which to place what I was reading in context This may have handicapped me as I proceeded through it Much of this book consists of a seemingly endless list of Emperors Empresses and challengers It contains relatively little about other pieces of the Byzantine puzzle such as the economy the arts and other social forces which contributed to the whole picture I did find interesting the sections dealing with the relationship of Charlemagne to the Empire and the occasional attempts usually the result of foreign pressure to heal the breach in ChristendomOverall I was somewhat disappointed with this book I finished it with little understanding of Byzantium than I had when I started It may be the nature of the subject itself but I feel that I need to look elsewhere for a good initiation into the Byzantine World

review A Short History of Byzantium characters ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ John Julius Norwich John Julius Norwich ✓ 5 characters With wit intelligence and his trademark eye for riveting detail John Julius Norwich has brought together the most important and fascinating events from his trilogy of the rise and fall of the Byzantine empire. This is a condensed edition of the author s three volume tome on Byzantium Byzantine Empire It is a concise and very readable book on the long political history spanning over 1123 years of the empire Its rise and fall are chronologically describedSome maps of Constantinople the Mediterranean world etc as well as family trees of various notable emperors are included But on top of these maps showing the border of the empire at various times would have been very useful since the author freuently mentions its constantly changing border as a result of military conuests and defeats For these maps the reader will have to refer to The New Penguin Atlas of Medieval History by Colin McEvedyBeing political history focusing on the rulers emperors empresses and their regents and their policies the lives of ordinary people or its great art and architecture are not covered For these we have to turn to other booksIn summary this book has opened my eyes to this fascinating but generally overlooked empire which passed the ancient Greek cultural legacy to Western Europe and brought religion to Russia and Eastern Europe
