The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire by Jonathan Shepard (Editor)
Publication Date: 2009
Byzantium lasted a thousand years, ruled to the end by self-styled 'emperors of the Romans'. It underwent kaleidoscopic territorial and structural changes, yet recovered repeatedly from disaster: even after the near-impregnable Constantinople fell in 1204, variant forms of the empire reconstituted themselves. This volume tells that story, tracing political and military events, religious controversies and economic change. It covers the main events and periods, with more detailed chapters on particular outlying regions, neighbouring powers or aspects of Byzantium.

This practical guide aims to facilitate the discovery of narrative sources (chronicles, annals, saints' lives) for a given area and time period. It lists editions, modern translations and, as far as possible, internet sites for texts. Nine introductory essays discuss genres of historical narrative and the methods of medieval history writing, and also highlight the special character of Byzantine, Muslim, and Eastern Christian narrative sources.

Resources for Byzantine Hagiography
The introduction contains general information about the project and bio-bibliographical introductions to each of the saints of the eighth to tenth centuries included in the project. The database itself is divided into three sections: a list of saints, a list of authors, and a search of citations. The Greek texts that have been permitted to be reproduced either in their entirety or in sections may be accessed through the saint list (entire texts) or search citations (partial texts).
