Historical Dictionary of Byzantium, Hardback Book


In this revised and updated second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Byzantium, author John H.

Rosser introduces both the general reader and the researcher to the history of the Byzantine Empire.

This comprehensive dictionary includes detailed, alphabetical entries on key figures, ideas, places, and themes related to Byzantine art, history, and religion, and the second edition contains numerous additional entries on broad topics such as transportation and gender, which were less prominent in the previous edition.

An expanded introduction introduces the reader to Byzantium and a guide to further sources and suggested readings can be found in the extensive bibliography that follows the entries.

A basic chronology and various maps and illustrations are also included in the dictionary.

This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Byzantium.
