1. The History of Theophylact Simocatta - An English Translation with Introduction
by Theophylact Theophylact Simocatta; Michael and Mary Whitby (Edited and Translated by) 
Price: USD 99.02
Dealer: AbebooksAU, Boobooks
Description: ISBN10: 019822799X, ISBN13: 9780198227991, [publisher: Oxford University Press, Incorporated] Hardcover This is the first translation into English of the History of Theophylact Simocatta, the last major historian of classical antiquity. By far the most important source for the history of the late sixth century A.D., the History has never before been fully evaluated due to Theophylact's obscureand idiosyncratic style. The narrative concentrates on the acts of war that threatened the stability of the reign of Emperor Maurice (A.D. 582-602)--the Persian War and struggles with the Avar federation and the Slav tribes in the Balkans. Very good condition. Dust jacket has some light wear at edges. [ARMIDALE, NSW, Australia] [Publication Year: 1986]

Description: ISBN10: 019822799X, ISBN13: 9780198227991, [publisher: Oxford: Clarendon Press. 01.05.1986.] Hardcover XXX, 258 Seiten / p. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Wolfgang Haase, langjährigem Herausgeber der ANRW und des International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT) / From the library of Prof. Wolfgang Haase, long-time editor of ANRW and the International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT). - sehr guter Zustand / very good condition - The History of Theophylact Simocatta, the last major historian of classical antiquity, is our most important source for the reign of the emperor Maurice (A.D. 582-602). Theophylact’s narrative concentrates on the two main theatres of war that threatened the empire’s security. In the east the Romans brought the Persian War to a successful conclusion in 591, when the young king Chosroes II was forced to rely on Roman armies to regain his throne, and Maurice grasped the opportunity to establish a stable relationship between the two great powers of the late antique world. In the Balkans Roman control was threatened bv the invasions of the fearsome Avar federation and by migrations of the Slav tribes, but by the end of Maurice’s reign energetic campaigning along the Danube had begun to re-establish imperial authority. -- Theophylact was no military expert, and he compiled his History almost a generation after the latest events that he recounted; as a result his narrative is sometimes unclear or misleading. This first English translation of the History, a work renowned for its stylistic idiosyncracy and obscurity, offers an annotated text to facilitate a proper evaluation of its evidence.
