The Byzantine Commonwealth
Eastern Europe, 500-1453Book - 1971
Throughout much of the Middle Ages, the lands of Eastern Europe lay within the orbit of Byzantine political and cultural influence, forming a major preoccupation of the Empire. This is a comprehensive historical account of the relations, political, diplomatic, ecclesiastical, economic and cultural, between the Byzantine Empire and the peoples of Eastern Europe. The book demonstrates that this community of nations came to share a common cultural tradition.
