The first title in the Variorum Collected Studies series was published in 1970. Since then close to 2000 titles have appeared in the series, and it has established a well-earned international reputation for the publication of key research across a whole range of subjects within the fields of history. The history of the medieval world remains central to the series, with Byzantine studies a particular speciality. Other major strands include Islamic studies and the histories of philosophy, science and medicine.
Each title in the Variorum Collected Studies series brings together for the first time a selection of articles by a leading authority on a particular subject. These studies are reprinted from a vast range of learned journals, Festschrifts and conference proceedings. They are an essential resource making available research that is scattered or inaccessible in all but the most specialized libraries.
