Church and Society in Byzantium Under the Comneni, 1081-1261
In this major study the theme of 'church and society' provides a means of examining the condition of the Byzantine Empire at an important period of its history, up to and well beyond the fall of Constantinople in 1204. 'E an admirably comprehensive picture E essential reading for all who want to know why the Orthodox church survived the demise of the Byzantine empire, and is still with us.'Paul Magdalino, The Anglo-Hellenic Review'E a major achievement.'Andrew Louth, Journal of Theological Studies
