Ethnicity and Empire in Byzantium

Anthony Kaldellis, author

The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press

Was there ever such a thing as Byzantium? Certainly no emperor ever called himself “Byzantine.” And while the identities of minorities in the eastern empire are clear—contemporaries speak of Slavs, Bulgarians, Armenians, Jews, and Muslims—that of the ruling majority remains obscured behind a name made up by later generations.

Historical evidence tells us unequivocally that Byzantium’s ethnic majority, no less than the ruler of Constantinople, would have identified as Roman. It was an identity so strong in the eastern empire that even the conquering Ottomans would eventually adopt it. But Western scholarship has a long tradition of denying the Romanness of Byzantium. In Romanland, Anthony Kaldellis investigates why and argues that it is time for the Romanness of these so-called Byzantines to be taken seriously.

In the Middle Ages, he explains, people of the eastern empire were labeled “Greeks,” and by the nineteenth century they were shorn of their distorted Greekness and became “Byzantine.” Only when we understand that the Greek-speaking population of Byzantium was actually Roman will we fully appreciate the nature of Roman ethnic identity. We will also better understand the processes of assimilation that led to the absorption of foreign and minority groups into the dominant ethnic group, the Romans who presided over the vast multiethnic empire of the east.

Varietes of monastic experience in byzantium


Alice-Mary Talbot, author

University of Notre Dame Press

In this unprecedented introduction to Byzantine monasticism, based on the Conway Lectures she delivered at the University of Notre Dame in 2014, Alice-Mary Talbot surveys the various forms of monastic life in the Byzantine Empire between the ninth and fifteenth centuries. It includes chapters on male monastic communities (mostly cenobitic, but some idiorrhythmic in late Byzantium), nuns and nunneries, hermits and holy mountains, and a final chapter on alternative forms of monasticism, including recluses, stylites, wandering monks, holy fools, nuns disguised as monks, and unaffiliated monks and nuns.

Heretics, Schismatics, or Catholics?

Latin Attitudes to the Greeks in the Long Twelfth Century

Saavas Neocleous, author

Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies

Heretics, Schismatics, or Catholics? investigates a wide range of often neglected historiographical, theological, and literary sources as well as letters, and covers the period from the last quarter of the eleventh century, when Pope Gregory VII (1073–1085) first conceived the idea of the union of Christendom under papal leadership for the liberation of Eastern Christians, to the decades that followed 1204, when the crusading enterprise went out of papal control and ended up destroying the very empire which it had initially set out to defend. It brings rigorous analysis and a fresh perspective to bear on these antagonisms and divergences: it demonstrates persuasively the persistence of a paradigm of shared unity between Latins and Greeks and their polities within an integral Christendom over the course of the long twelfth century.

Vatican II.

Behind the Iron Curtain

Piotr H. Kosicki, editor

The catholic University of America Press

The goal of this volume is to begin writing Central and Eastern Europe back into the story of the Second Vatican Council, its origins, and its consequences. This volume assembles - for the first time in any language - a broad overview of the place of four different Communist-run countries - Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, and Yugoslavia - in the story of the Council. Framing these is an account of how the Cold War impacted the Council and its reception. The book engages with both English-language scholarship and the national historiographies of the countries that it examines, offering a global lens on the present state of research (covering all relevant languages) and seeking to propel that research forward. All of the chapters draw on both non-English secondary literature and original primary sources - some published, some archival.

Leone XIII

Il rinnovamento della Chiesa nelle sue encicliche

Gian Luca Bacchio, author

Aracne Editrice

Accostarsi all'opera di un pontefice, seppur prendendo in considerazione, come in questo caso, una parte della sua attività, le encicliche, è sempre impresa ardua. Quando poi ci si trova di fronte a un personaggio come Leone XIII questa complessità appare ancor più accentuata. La lettura delle sue encicliche lascia intendere quanto grande sia stata la capacità di questo pontefice di raccogliere nuove sfide e di leggere i profondi mutamenti che fu chiamato a vivere e declinare, nell'interesse dell'uomo e della Chiesa. Il volume è un contributo e uno spunto che aiuta a progredire nello studio e nella conoscenza di questa grande personalità. Presentazione di Alberto Torresani.
