Summary
"During the last two centuries of its existence the Byzantine Empire was politically in a state of utter decadence, but, in contrast, its intellectual life has never before shone so brilliantly. In these four lectures the author discusses the leading scholars of the period, their erudition, their intense individualism, their controversies and their achievements.

Summary
"This classic account shows how the fall of Constantinople in May 1453, after a siege of several weeks, came as a bitter shock to Western Christendom. The city's plight had been neglected, and negligible help was sent in this crisis. To the Turks, victory not only brought a new imperial capital, but guaranteed that their empire would last. To the Greeks, the conquest meant the end of the civilisation of Byzantium, and led to the exodus of scholars stimulating the tremendous expansion of Greek studies in the European Renaissance.

Summary
"Byzantine culture and civilization was, until the late nineteenth century, regarded prejudicially as inferior to the Greek tradition and that of the Christian West, between which it was historically poised. It has taken historians like Steven Runciman to assess the cultural achievements of Byzantium in its own terms -- to evoke its individuality and uniqueness. A major attempt of modern scholarship to define for the general reader the scope and richness of Byzantine art, society, religion, politics, customs and history. "Scripts of | | Argument ..."

Summary
"Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books. One of the great historians of the twentieth century, Steven Runciman has captivated generations with his superb A History of the Crusades, first published by Penguin in 1965, transforming the common view of the Holy Wars through its impartial and penetrating approach. Here, he describes the decisive victory of the crusaders over Arab forces in Jerusalem, an episode that perhaps more than any other was responsible for generating a Christian Moslem enmity still felt today.
