Steven RUNCIMAN, Teocratia Bizantina

In setting the stage, Runciman begins by examining the se of Palestine and Egypt from Byzantine rule. Pretty dense – It feels like it averages a mention of a person per text line – but engaging nonetheless.

La caída de Constantinopla by Steven Runciman (1 star ratings)

Oct 12, Lars Brownworth rated it it was amazing. The Sicilian Vespers reads like a greater-than life drama, a conflict between Pope and Emperor, with all the major powers of the Mediterranean also playing a role, an entangled, passioned political intrigue with the occasional battle thrown in.

Runciman offers a series of top-down facts. Grandma Weitzel would not be pleased. This is also an excellent guide to the historical background to Dante’s Divine Comedy, forming almost a Who’s Who of the political figures in it, and providing insight into their placement in Hell, Paradise or Purgatory.

Unless you are a particular Verdi fan or a devotee to popular insurrections in medieval Europe you may not have heard of the Sicilian Vespers – when while waiting for Church doors to open for Vespers in before Easter, Sicilians turned on the French soldiers of the Anvegin King Charles I and begun a rebellion which was to last for many years.


Runciman uses the first part of his narrative to set the stage of what happened and why during the Sicilian Vespers. Almost half the book is used to set the stage for the first crusade.

Trivia About The Sicilian Vesp Vada there, they both studied French under Aldous Huxley. Those are all definite problems underlying Runciman’s narrative, but it’s still excellently written and serves as a great introduction to the political events that dominated the Mediterranean in the later 13th century. Naturally, the theme of passionate resistance to foreign rule and interfering Popes was virtually tailor made for Verdi.

No trivia or quizzes yet. While it was a big of setback, it was lq that was recoverable at least until the mess with Philip IV and Boniface and the lengthy trip to Avignon. One of my all time favourite history books. Refresh and try again.

Even so, a power struggle erupted between military leaders which caused resentment and distrust, along with a schism that took place within the church bodies. Martin IV is a short-sighted French patriot who caused the downfall of the medieval papacy. The principal characters trot onto stage and various episodes unfol No conception in medieval history was finer than that of the Universal Church, uniting Christendom into one great theocracy governed by the impartial wisdom of stevwn Vicar of God.

The bibliography is superb and makes this a valuable reference for further reading.
