Justinian

Front Cover
The reign of Justinian (527-65) was a key phase in the transition from the Roman Empire of classical times to the Byzantine empire of the Middle Ages. A man of provincial background, he was one of the greatest rulers of the period: he launched and won wars, codified the laws, built impressive buildings and offered imaginative responses to the numerous problems he faced. John Moorhead reinterprets Justinian as man and monarch (together with his wife the empress Theodora) and assesses the evidence from this time for the evolution of a medieval world.
