With Volume 14 The Cambridge Ancient History concludes its story. This volume embraces the wide range of approaches in scholarship which have in recent decades transformed our view of Late Antiquity. A picture emerges of a period of military and political disruption, but also of vibrant intellectual and cultural activity.
In this book the author contends-and this is not a very widely held view-that Byzantium deserves to be considered an influential part of the broader development of Europe, even though its borders also reached out to the vast territories of Anatolia and the Caucasus, and to the eastern Mediterranean.
This volume brings Byzantium - often misconstrued as a vanished successor to the classical world - to the forefront of European history Focuses on the identity, ethnicity, and culture of the Byzantine people Deconstructs stereotypes surrounding Byzantium Beautifully illustrated with photographs and maps.
Asking how Christianity succeeded in becoming the dominant ideology in the unpromising circumstances of the Roman Empire, the author turns to the development of Christian discourse over the first to sixth centuries AD, investigating its essential characteristics, its effects on existing forms of communication, and its eventual preeminence.
Averil Cameron refutes an argument by some scholars that Christians did not dialogue after a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD. Cameron shows that in late antiquity and throughout Byzantium Christians debated and wrote philosophical, literary, and theological dialogues, and she makes a case for their centrality in Greek literature.
This volume provides an account of what is known about the remotest geological ages and comprises chapters on the different kinds of evidence concerning man and his physical environment. The text offers a setting against which the cultural progress of the historical epoch can be viewed.
