Title: The Byzantine empire : the rearguard of European civilization
Authors: Foord, Edward (Edward A.)
Keywords: Byzantine Empire - History
Issue Date: 1911
Publisher: Adam and Charles Black
Abstract: The book describes the history of the Later Roman Empire. This work is a preface to a larger one, embodying the results of author’s original research. As regards chronology, this is the first real attempt to illustrate the strange territorial fluctuations of the Empire on a rational principle. Illustrated, provided with maps, little space has been wasted on ecclesiastical controversies, these being Empire's work as preserver of civilization and rearguard of Europe. Expressed the opinion that Byzantine cruelty is largely a myth, and otherwise it may be found the estimation of certain rulers differs from that which commonly prevails.
