Justin the First

An Introduction to the Epoch of Justinian the Great

A. A. Vasiliev

Dumbarton Oaks Studies

Byzantine Studies, Byzantine History


"Although Professor Vasiliev does not state his aim in precisely these terms, his Justin I should really be regarded as a contribution towards a more integrated view of the history of the East Roman Empire in the sixth and seventh centuries. . . [He] sets out to stress the continuity between the reigns of Justin I and Justinian I, and he goes so far as to attribute to the nephew almost complete control of policy from 518 onwards." Joan Hussey, The English Historical Review
