Synopsis

"The Complete Procopius Anthology" contains the complete works of Procopius of Caesarea, including "The Buildings of Justinian" in digital ebook format for the first time, as well as "The Wars of Justinian", and "The Secret History of the Courts of Justinian".

Procopius of Caesarea was a prominent Byzantine scholar from the region of Palaestina Prima, and is widely considered to be the last major historian of the Ancient World. He accompanied the Byzantine general Belisarius in the wars of the Emperor Justinian I, enabling him to write "The Wars of Justinian" from a first-hand perspective.

The celebrated "Secret History of the Court of Justinian" was discovered in the library of the Vatican in 1623, and published to tremendous interest. It reveals Procopius as a man deeply disillusioned with the Emperor Justinian and his wife the Empress Theodora. Procopius delivers a comprehensive character assassination of Justinian as a cruel, vulgar, venal and incompetent leader, and Theodora as a lustful and mean-spirited woman.
