Recensies en Artikelen

"The forensic and thorough quality of the work offers Byzantinists new ideas about the seventh and eighth centuries in Constantinople, and a fresh in-depth study of a text that has not received such sustained attention since Cyril Mango’s 1990 critical edition." - Meredith L. D. Riedel, Duke University Speculum 94/1 (January 2019)

Creating Memories in Late 8th-century Byzantium

The Short History of Nikephoros of Constantinople

Creating Memories in Late 8th-Century Byzantium is one of the key sources for our understanding of Byzantine history in the seventh and eighth century. This book offers a close look at that volume and its manner of representation of the past - Nikephoros's specific authorial method in the shaping of the image of Byzantine emperors and ecclesiastical topics linked with Iconoclasm. When seen through this lens, Creating Memories is revealed to be more engaged with and burdened by contemporary political and ecclesiastical strife than has previously been thought.
