From the introduction:

This e-book is meant for college kids and students who would
like to benefit concerning the Byzantine global from basic sources.
It has been designed in general when you already understand some
classical Greek, yet i am hoping that it could actually additionally tempt medieval
historians and scholars of recent Greek literature to make
their first direct acquaintance with an strangely fascinating
period of history.
My item has been to choose between prose writers a number
of consultant extracts so one can supply a normal picture
of Byzantine existence and tradition. the single latest anthology
of this type is a bit booklet through G. Soyter, Byzantinische Ge-
schichtsschreiber, Heidelberg 1929, which turns out to me too
short and restricted in scope to be satisfactory.
In the choice the following provided to the reader the historians
claim the lion's proportion. that's in simple terms to be anticipated. Although
they often got to work with the slim goal of writing
military and political historical past, they accepted themselves
digressions from the most subject that are admirably suited
for inclusion right here. there's additionally no doubt that the historians
are the easiest writers of medieval Greece. basically their works
can stand the try out of being translated right into a sleek language
for the good thing about a much broader viewers than specialist scholars.
Of the opposite literary kinds the letter is better represented, and
throughout the interval it was once practised with good fortune through school
masters, bishops, statesmen or even emperors.
