New. Justinian presided over the period that could properly be called the beginning of Christendom, briefly reigning over a united eastern and western empire before it slid into permanent disjunction. This Cambridge Companion brings together twenty essays providing a mosaic of the political, social, religious, philosophical and literary dimensions of Justinian's empire. A sampling: 'Justinian's Constantinople, ' 'Law and Legal Practice, ' 'Emperors and Popes in the Sixth Century, ' 'Literary Culture under Justinian, ' to name but a few in this substantial and detailed contribution.
