Book Description

In the present volume, historians and literacy scholars, studying sources dating from the 5th to the 14th century and focusing on issues relating to literary expression, ideology and society, highlight the ways in which Byzantine authors perceived and presented events and situations, which for some belonged to the distant past, while for others constituted personal experiences. Comparisons between texts of the same period often reveal the significant changes that occurred at the ideological, political, social and religious level, while comparisons among works of the same author can bring into view the said author as a individual and distinctive entity, expressing personal views and perspectives for the events of his/her own lifetime.
