This richly informative and comprehensive guide to the world of late antiquity offers the latest scholarship to the researcher along with sheer reading pleasure to the browser. In eleven essays and over 500 encyclopedia entries, an international team of experts provides essential information and fresh perspectives on the history and culture of an era marked by the rise of two world religions, unprecedented political upheavals that remade the map of the known world, and the creation of art of enduring glory. By extending the commonly accepted chronological and territorial boundaries of the period - to encompass Roman, Byzantine, Sassanian, and early Islamic cultures, from the middle of the third century to the end of the eighth - this guide makes new connections and permits revealing comparisons. Illustrated with 79 photographs, 16 in full color. AN/AN. Both the volume and the unclipped dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition. AS NEW/AS NEW..
