HASH(0x93386c3c) étoiles sur 5 An Authentic Journey in Byzantium 30 mars 2006
Par Mark D. Merlino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In his book "Daily Life in the Byzantine Empire" Marcus Rautman has outdone himself. In this book, he has skillfully brought together insights about the Byzantine way of life from various fields in a well-organized and easy to read format.

Reading the book, you can help but feel as if you are actually visiting the Byzantine Empire. There are sections of the book that describe how Byzantines perceived life, their daily routines, the Byzantine family, and how life varied in Constantinople, larger towns and the countryside. As well, there are special sections devoted to the lives of soldiers, monks, artists and scholars. In these descriptions, Rautman explains how the situation changed at different points in the Empire's long history.

If you would like a solid background on Byzantine society, read this book. You will not be disappointed.

HASH(0x93386e88) étoiles sur 5 Fascinating 14 juin 2008
Par Haruspex vivorum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Marcus Rautman has performed splendidly in this comprehensive overview of daily life in the Byzantine realm. He treats a variety of subjects, including cities, the countryside, the military, religion, art, and intellectual pursuits. He examines topics as basic as money, food, and clothing but also gives considerable attention to such matters as pressing olives, setting up an army camp, and becoming a monk. While the book is largely a survey spanning the entire "Byzantine millennium", Rautman now and then points out specific changes that occurred within this period, such as the transition to a more meat-centered diet around the seventh century. The author is also to be commended for the eminent readability of his text. He manages masterfully to present his great abundance of facts in way that neither overwhelms nor bores the reader. Also, his sentence structure is sound, his transitions well executed, and his grammar refreshingly correct - which makes all the more puzzling the rare misspellings that do creep in. All in all, this is an exceptionally well researched and delightfully written guide to daily life in a relatively little-studied civilization.

HASH(0x93386e4c) étoiles sur 5 Excellent overview of the Empire: This book is pure fun! 21 janvier 2014
Par K. Ann Seeton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are seeking a one book review of the culture and everyday life in the Byzantine Empire, this book fits that role nicely. The author worked hard to come up with the many little questions, aided apparently by her own students, her children, who asked great questions for which the author then hunted down answers. I'm a scholar and have been spending the past year reading dissertations and articles written for symposia. My reading takes me into the details too, but more hit and miss, with books on Trade, foods, travel, women, eunuchs, lighting, cooking, literature, etc. I am enjoying this over-view. Enjoying also the references to her sources so anyone who wants to read more can do so. This is especially useful when helping a student learn how to proceed when learning a new area of study. I can heartily recommend this to home school families who want to include the History of Byzantium in their world history or Church history studies.

My conclusion is two fold: This book is a good starter for learning this much neglected period of history, and this book is pure fun!
HASH(0x9338815c) étoiles sur 5 Serves as an important complement to those popular intros to Byzantium that cover only emperors and wars 17 juillet 2016
Par Christopher Culver - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Popular introductions to the history of the Byzantine Empire, like John Julius Norwich's famous three-volume work, tend to focus only on successive emperors, their court surroundings, and the occasional wars that Byzantium fought. But what was life like for the vast majority of Byzantium's population, far from court circles and generally spent scraping a living? Marcus Rautman, a historian at the University of Missouri, sought to give a more well-rounded view of Byzantine life with this 2006 book.

Rautman starts the book with a chronology that briefly presents the dry political and administrative history of the Byzantine Empire, as found in most popular introductions to its history, just to quickly get that out of the way. Then, his survey of daily life proper is divided into chapters on various themes, such as "Worldviews", "Society and Economy", "Military Life", "Cities and Towns" on one hand and "The Countryside" on the other, "Artistic Life", and "Life of the Mind". Details of everyday life range from what was used for dog food to how much books cost.

I enjoyed this book and learned a great deal from it. Even when I had read other, more political histories of the Byzantine Empire, I had never appreciated just how drastically Byzantium changed in the crucial centuries bridging Late Antiquity and the Medieval era. Not only did upheavals like the Arab assault lead to shifts in political organization and trade, but Rautman shows how even daily life changed under the radically different circumstances; Byzantium before and after were really two completely different societies.

The book does have some downsides, however. There are some typos that should have been easily spotted, as other reviewers have noted, and I think an astute editor could have smooted out the occasional repetition. Rautman says that most Byzantines were able to read and write a little, but this claim is not sourced and surely there must have been barriers to literacy for much or most of the population. Finally, the illustrations he uses of places and people are generally from post-Byzantine times, and this can be misleading. For example, an 1876 engraving of monks, meant to illustrate the chapter on monastery life, shows them wearing the kamilavkion, apparel that actually originated from the later Ottoman Empire and was not worn in Byzantium. One wonders why Orthodox iconography known to date to Byzantine times wasn't used more.

HASH(0x93388660) étoiles sur 5 too detailed 21 février 2009
Par R. I. Mackenzie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I got this book for my husband who wanted to find out more about this time period. But it is just way too detailed for the casual reader. For instance, he was not interested in the clothes of that period.
