Mass migration and the lost world of Byzantium

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


The Byzantine empire stood firmly between the geographical borders of the East and West for over a thousand years from the fourth to the fifteenth century, connecting the classical past with the modern period. The Byzantines left a considerable imprint on both western and eastern civilisations over these years, with their establishment of Orthodox Christianity and preserving many classical texts, artworks and traditions for generations to come. To coincide with the release of his latest publication, The Lost World of Byzantium, Jonathan Harris examines Byzantine policies towards mass migration, revealing an Empire that was highly resourceful and surprisingly tolerant.
