Theodore of Studium: His Life and Times

Format: Digital


Alice Gardner in her introduction writes that “in [Theodore of Studium], there were focused many great historical tendencies which gave their character to the churches and the civil societies of the Middle Ages.” His legacy includes being one of the first to take a principled stand against slavery, building the Stoudios monastery into a scholarly hub of the Byzantine world, and leaving a profound mark on Byzantine literature via his prolific corpus. Gardner’s elegantly presents the facts of Theodore’s life and analyzes his place in the history of Orthodoxy.

Alice Gardner (1854–1927) was an English historian and teacher whose linguistic acumen made her a significant figure in academia. She graduated at the top of her class from Newnham College, Cambridge, in 1879. She taught at Plymouth High School and Bedford College, London. From 1884 to 1914, she taught and directed studies in history at Newnham College. During World War I, she worked in the Foreign Office, and in 1915 she took charge of the history department at Bristol University. Bristol University awarded her an honorary MA and appointed her as reader in Byzantine studies. She was a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and member of its council, as well as vice president of the Historical Association.

Gardner wrote two history books for children and many other works, including Julian: Emperor and Philosopher, Theodore of Studium: His Life and Times, and The Lascarids of Nicaea. She was the first to make the Eastern Mediterranean writings of the Byzantine era accessible to an English-speaking audience, and her translations are still in use today.
