This title was first published in 2003.The collection of thirty-four essays in Porphyrogenita reflects the life-long teaching and research interests of Julian Chrysostomides, Director of the Hellenic Institute, Royal Holloway, University of London. They cover Byzantine history, historiography, hagiography, theology and monasticism, Latin rule in the Greek East, and Greek palaeography. The studies both encompass the latest research by the foremost authorities in the field, and provide editions of important texts which have never appeared in print before. These include two works relevant to the emperor Manuel II Palaeologus (1391-1425) - his own 'A Depiction of Spring in a Dyed, Woven Hanging', and a funeral oration on him by an unknown author - and writings by the 13th-century scholars Nicephorus Blemmydes and Constantine Acropolites.
