Alcimus Ecdicius Avitus, bishop of Vienne from c.494 to c.518, is known for his poetic works, but his Latin prose style has led to some neglect of his letters. This first complete translation of the letters into English gives access to an important source for the history of the Burgundian Kingdom in the early sixth century.

About the Author:

Professor Ian Wood is Professor of Early Medieval History in the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds. His research interests focus on the history and historiography of the early Middle Ages. Previous publications include Avitus of Vienne: Letters and Selected Prose (TTH, LUP, 2002).

Review:

This copious selection from the letters of Avitus, who was Bishop of Vienne from c.494 to c.518, gives scholars and students access to a very important source for the history of the Burgundian kingdom and the late antique world. There is an excellent, and very full, introduction, and each letter is accompanied by notes which enable the reader to situate it in the intellectual, polemic, and political currents of the sixth century.
