Excerpt from A History of the Eastern Roman Empire: From the Fall of Irene to the Accession of Basil I.; (A. D. 802-867)

The history of Byzantine civilization, in which social elements of the West and the East are so curiously blended and fused into a unique culture, will not be written for many yea, rs to come. It cannot be written until each successive epoch has been exhaustively studied and its distinguishing characteristics clearly ascertained. The fallacious assumption, once accepted as a truism, that the Byzantine spirit knew no change or shadow of turning, that the social atmosphere of the Eastern Rome was always immutably the same, has indeed been discredited; hut even in recent sketches of this civilization by competent hands we can see unconscious survivals of that belief. The curve.of the whole development has still to be accurately traced, and this can only be done by defining each section by means of the evidence which applies to that section alone. No other method will enable us to discriminate the series of gradual changes which transformed the Byzantium of Justinian into that - so different in a thousand ways - of the last Constantine.

This consideration has guided me in writing the present volume, which continues, but on a larger scale, my History of the Later Roman Empire from Arcadius to Irene, published more than twenty years ago, and covers a period of two generations, which may be called for the sake of convenience the Amorian epoch.

Book Description:

This 1912 work argues that the 'Amorian epoch' of the ninth century should not be overshadowed by the better-known periods of Byzantine history before and after it. Bury describes how iconoclasm again became a cause of civil strife, and wars on the eastern frontier strained the empire's resources.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A History of the Eastern Roman Empire: From the Fall of Irene to the Accession of Basil I.; (A. D. 802-867) It would not be just to the leading men who guided public affairs during this period, such as Theophilus and Bardas, to attempt to draw their portraits. The data are entirely insufficient. Even in the case of Photius, who has left a considerable literary legacy, while we can appreciate, perhaps duly, his historical significance, his personality is only half revealed; his character may be variously conceived; and the only safe course is to record his acts without presuming to know how far they were determined by personal motives.
