Description - The Age of Justinian by J. A. S. Evans
This work examines the reign of the great emperor Justinian (527-565) and his wife Theodora, who advanced from the theatre to the throne. Here we find chronicled the origins of the split between East and West, the results of which are still with us. The book looks at the social structure of 6th-century Byzantium, and the neighbours that surrounded the empire. It also deals with Justinian's wars, which restored Italy, Africa and a part of Spain to the empire.
