Social Change in Town and Country in Eleventh-Century Byzantium

Edited by James Howard-Johnston

Oxford Studies in Byzantium

  • Offers the only specific treatment of a key aspect of the structural history of Byzantium in the eleventh century in a scholarly work published in English
  • Casts new light on the social history of town and country, discarding traditional explanations for Byzantium's sharp decline in the second half of the eleventh century
  • Synthesizes the latest archaeological findings from Asia Minor as a whole and from a specific area around Sagalassos in south-western Turkey, as well as from Greece and southern Italy
  • Includes the first detailed analysis of the changes brought about in Taron after its annexation by Byzantium in a valuable case study which provides a useful basis for further generalized conclusions
