"In this work of extraordinary learning…readers will find themselves guided on a fascinating journey through a story that has never before been presented in such an accessible and thought-provoking fashion."—Thomas R. Martin, Jeremiah O’Connor Professor of Classics at the College of the Holy Cross

"A superb survey of Byzantium’s many cultural bequests…. In this deft synthesis of scholarship, classicist Wells shows how the Byzantines exerted a profound influence on all neighboring civilizations…. Contains a useful glossary of historical figures, detailed maps and a time line."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This history is a needed reminder of the debt that three of our major civilizations owe a debt to Byzantium. Highly recommended."—Library Journal, starred review
