Tells the story of the Byzantine Empire from its beginnings to the emergence of its only European rival, the Holy Roman Empire, with the coronation of Charlemagne on Christmas Day AD 800. As Norwich's spirited, deft and colorful account makes clear, those first five centuries were marked by stupendous changes and dramas: the adoption of Christianity by the Graeco-Roman world; the fall of Rome and its empire; the reigns of Constantine, Theodosius the Great, and Justinian; and the intrigues of such empresses as Eudoxia and Theodora, whose names have become synonymous with luxury and sensuality.
