Procopius and the Sixth Century by Averil Cameron

Book Description

Originally published by Duckworth and the University of California Press, Procopius is now available for the first time in paperback. Professor Cameron emphasises the essential unity of Procopius' three works and, starting from the 'minor' ones, demonstrates their intimate connection with the Wars. Procopius' writings are seen to comprise a subtle whole; only if they are understood in this way can their historical value be properly appreciated. The result is a new evaluation of Procopius which will be central to any future history of the sixth century.

Books By Author Averil Cameron

Dialoguing in Late Antiquity by Averil Cameron Dialoguing in Late Antiquity, Paperback (May 2014)

Averil Cameron refutes an argument by some scholars that Christians did not dialogue after a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD. Cameron shows that in late antiquity and throughout Byzantium Christians debated and wrote philosophical, literary, and theological dialogues, and she makes a case for their centrality in Greek literature.

Byzantine Matters by Averil Cameron Byzantine Matters, Hardback (May 2014)

For many of us, Byzantium remains "byzantine" - obscure, marginal, difficult. This book presents an original and personal view of the challenges and questions facing historians of Byzantium today.

Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity by Averil Cameron Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity, Hardback (September 2011)

"Simultaneously published in the USA and Canada"--T.p. verso.

428 AD by Averil Cameron 428 AD, Paperback (April 2011)

By focusing on a single year not overshadowed by an epochal event, this title provides a fresh look at Mediterranean civilization in the midst of enormous change - as Christianity takes hold in rural areas across the empire, as western Roman provinces fall away from those in the Byzantine east, and as power shifts from Rome to Constantinople.
