The Byzantine Empire


T. Fisher Unwin, G. P. Putnam’s Sons 1892

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This classic work of scholarship from distinguished historian Charles W.C. Oman presents a comprehensive, yet accessible account of the Byzantine Empire. Oman’s erudition and primary source knowledge are evident in this readable work. He chronicles the rise of the empire from a small colonial village to the pinnacle of its power in late antiquity under Justinian the Great—when it was all that remained of the Roman Empire. In this volume, Oman serves as a chief apologist against the popular belief that the Byzantine Empire was synonymous with decadence and corruption. Recounting the fascinating social, religious, and political history of this remarkable empire, this volume continues to command relevance as a secondary text.
