Description

‘Magisterial – an outstanding book that shines a bright light one of the most important, interesting and under-studied cities in European history. A masterpiece.’ Peter Frankopan’A wonderful new history of the Mediterranean from the fifth to eighth centuries through a lens focussed on Ravenna, gracefully and clearly written, which reconceptualises what was ‘East’ and what was ‘West’.’ Caroline Goodson’A masterwork by one of our greatest historians of Byzantium and early Christianity. Judith Herrin tells a story that is at once gripping and authoritative and full of wonderful detail about every element in the life of Ravenna. Impossible to put down.’ David Freedberg
