Very Good Condition in Very Good jacket. 487 Pages. To justify their power and their policies, rulers have both to demonstrate continuity with the past and to hold out the promise of change for the better. Their efforts can have profound effects on societys culture. The twenty essays in this book look at various ways in which the long succession of the emperors of New Rome at Constantinople shaped and coped with the huge expectations that were attached to their highly traditional, powerful and competitive office. Two interrelated themes dominate the collection: the use to which many emperors put the increasingly mythical figure of their predecessor, Constantine the great; and the relationship of the official 'rhetoric of renewal' to patterns of political, social, and cultural change.
