About this book
Byzantium has long been regarded by many as one big curiosity -- decadent, degenerate, superstitious, theocratic, effeminate. With its tales and trivia - ranging across religion, bureaucracy, food, theatre, medicine, xenophobia, warfare - this book will confirm some of these prejudices, but also open eyes to the life of this extraordinarily interesting civilization.
Byzantine scholars and anyone interested in Byzantium; general and professional readership, as well as professors and students.
