Overview

The Age of Justinian and Theodora is the story of the first notable husband-and-wife partnership in modern history and an indispensable reference on the history of sixth century Byzantium. Each chapter introduces a record of events as well as a presentment of the people amongst whom and of the stages upon which those events occurred. This detailed account is the first to contain the complete life and deeds of Justinian and his empress, Theodora. The author also presents a unique correlation of science and progress put in perspective with the ancient and modern world.

The first volume depicts life in Constantinople in the sixth century, including political, religious, and educational life under the rule of Anastasius and moves on to describe the rise of Justinian to the Byzantine throne, while giving a depiction of Theodora's alleged notorious pre-imperial career. However, the text goes beyond this to outline the role of women and daily life in general.

The Second volume is a detailed account of Justinian's accomplishments and his weaknesses, including his wars with Persia, the architectural marvel of St Sophia, his legislative achievements, his failure as a ruler leading to rebellion, and the religious intrigues that plagued his reign. The volume ends with the final days of the emperor and his efforts to make his legacy known to the world.
