PROCOPIUS the historian, born at Caesarea in Palestine late in the 5th century, became a lawyer. In A.D. 527 he was made legal adviser and secretary of Belisarius, commander against the Persians, and went with Belisarius again in 533 against the Vandals and in 535 against the Ostrogoth. After 541, or 540, Prodopius returned to Constantinople. He perhaps attended Belisarius again when Belisarius and then Narses campaigned against Tutila in Italy. He may have been that Procopius who was prefect of Constantinople in 562, but the date of his death (after 558) is unknown. His History of the Wars in 8 books consists of Persian Wars of emperors Justinus and Justinian down to 550 (2 books); the Vandalic War and after-events in Africa 532-546 (2 books); the Gothic War against the Ostrogoths in Sicily and Italy 536-552 (3 books); and a sketch of events to 554 (1 book). The whole consists largely of military history, with much information about peoples and places also, and about special events. He was a diligent, careful, judicious narrator of facts and developments and shows good powers of description. He is just to the empires enemies and boldly criticizes emperor Justinian. Other works are the Anecdota, violent attacks on Justinian, Theodora, and others; and The Buildings of Justinian (down to A.D. 558) including roads, bridges etc, besides churches, forts, hospitals, and so on in various parts of the empire

The secret history : with related texts by Procopius( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By exposing the perversion, repression, corruption, and injustice at the heart of Justinian's regime, Prokopios' The Secret History destroyed forever that emperor's reputation as the great and benevolent ruler of a vast Byzantine state. Faithfully rendered here in blunt and idiomatic English, Prokopios' tell-all is as shocking today as it was in the sixth century. Kaldellis' substantial Introduction addresses, among other topics, the historical background to The Secret History; Prokopios' literary style and major themes; and the relationships between Prokopios, Justinian, and Empress Theodora. Maps, genealogies, a glossary, and a selection of related texts enhance and support the reading
