Entries present significant persons, such as emperors, popes, generals, writers, and theologians; events, such as wars, coups, councils, and treaties; and important aspects of the economy, society, culture, and especially religion. Byzantium refers to the Roman Empire, based in Constantinople, from 324-1453. The rise, development, and fall of the Byzantine Empire are summarized in the chronology and explained in Rosser's (history, Boston College) introduction. An extensive bibliography is divided into sections by topic and by time period.
