The Early Byzantine Historians is the first original study of every significant Byzantine historian from Eusebius of Caesarea (c.255-339) to Theophylact Simocatta (c.585-after 641?). Individually and as a group, these authors had a decisive influence on Byzantine culture and modern perceptions of Byzantine history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A detailed survey of all known Byzantine historical writings, secular and ecclesiastical, to the end of Late Antiquity in the seventh century...The reader will have at his disposal an authoritative work of reference, indispensible to all serious students of a pivotal period.' - Cyril Mango, Exeter College, UK

' A remarkable accomplishment...Treadgold describes and evaluates the work of forty historians spread across three hundred years and more. The style is easy, plain, forceful, clear, reasonable - everything it should be. Beyond that, Treadgold is interested not just in the texts, but in the ancient authors as human beings, and looks to discover their individual purposes, methods, and peculiarities.' - Ramsay MacMullen, Yale University, USA

'A masterly survey of the historians on whom our knowledge of the dramatic history of early Byzantium, from Constantine to the eve of the Moslem conquest, depends.'- Fergus Millar, Oriental Institute, University of Oxford, UK

'Treadgold very capably interweaves the study of writing traditions, individual historians, and the time period they chronicled. The end product is an engaging, comprehensive study, beginning with the foundation of Greek historiography up to the seventh century...everyone who likes Byzantine history will enjoy this historiography.' - M Johnson, Choice Reviews Online
