Book Description Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies January 1982, 1982. Paper Back. Condition: New. Justinian the Great (483-565, reigned as Emperor from 527-565) was one of those rare figures in human history who made hugely important contributions, not just in one or two, but in multiple dimensions of his world. Politically, he re-established a unified Roman Empire throughout the Mediterranean world. In the realm of law, Justinian's famous codification was a benchmark in the development of the Western legal tradition. Artistically, Justinian's building projects were numerous, immense, and usually emerged as lasting standards of excellence, crowned of course by the building of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. Liturgically, a theological confession of Justinian (the Monogenes) became a permanent part of the liturgy of the Orthodox Church. Theologically, Justinian played an active role in the development of Christology confirming Chalcedon, leading to the Fifth Ecumenical Council in 553. After more than a century of scholarship that dismissed him rather cynically as an intolerant caesaropapist and ''theological dilettante,'' this book is an important contribution to a welcome rehabilitation of Justinian. 312 pp. Seller Inventory # 149286
