William Blackwood and Sons 1853–1854

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This massive two-volume history presents a thorough account of the Byzantine Empire from 716 to 1453. Finlay constantly refers to ancient historians, making this text an index for classical literature on the Byzantine Empire as much as a history of it. In Books 1 and 2 of the work, topics covered include the contest with the iconoclasts (717–867) and the Basilian Dynasty (876–1057), respectively. Book 3 goes over Byzantine history from 1058 leading up to its fall between 1185 and 1204, and Book 4 then covers the Greek empires of Nicaea and Constantinople from 1204 to 1261.
