Summary
  • "From the roar of the Hippodrome and the halls of the Imperial Palace to the streets of Carthage and the hills of North Africa, this compelling biography presents a redemptive view of Byzantine Emperor Justinian (483-565 A.D.) and his wife, Empress Theodora (ca. 500-548 A.D.), illuminating one of the most remarkable and effective partnerships in history. As joint rulers of the Roman Empire, they fought invasions, revolts, riots, and intrigues in an attempt to restore the empire to its former glory and boundaries."
  • "G. P. Baker describes the codification of Roman law under Justinian's sponsorship, a monumental feat of lasting importance; the bloody successes of the emperor's brilliant general Belisarius (505-565 A.D.) against the Vandals, Goths, and Persians; and the duplicity of Procopius (ca. 500-565 A.D.), who bequeathed to history a scandalous and depraved portrait of the couple's cruelty, greed, and sexual excesses. Justinian presents a startling and convincing reappraisal of their reign."--Jacket
