Authority in Byzantine Provincial Society, 950-1100
Cambridge University Press, Aug 19, 2004 - History - 210 pages
The emperors of the Byzantine Empire ca. 950 1100 acted to maintain power and collect taxes, but did not attempt to govern provincial society. Whenever the imperial government was not paying attention, provincial households competed for control over each other. This book describes the power-holders in the central provinces and gives the first detailed examination of the provincia l strength of the imperial government and the mechanics of local authority during this period. It provides a new model for the organisation of provincial society.
