The idea of progress : an inquiry into its origin and growth by John Bagnell Bury( Book )

110 editions published between 1920 and 2018 in English and held by 2,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Practically unknown before the Reformation, the idea of progress has since become one of the central concepts of western civilization. Professor Bury analyzes its evolution in the thought of Greece, Rome, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, to its flowering in all branches of science, religion, philosophy, industry, art, and literature during and following the 16th century. Emphasizing the necessity of adhering with rigid exactness to historical facts, the author presents a scheme of ideas upon which to thread the facts of human development which extends to cover the whole range of civilization in its movement through time. In this classic, oft cited volume, Bury writes a form of intellectual history, tracing the development of the idea of progress from the Greeks through its relationship to the idea of evolution"--Amazon

St. Patrick : the life and world of Ireland's saint by J. B Bury( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St. Patrick is perhaps the most venerated saint of the modern age, whose feast day is marked each year by massive celebrations across the world, from Dublin to New York and Sydney to Rio de Janeiro. In spite of his popularity very little is known of his life, which is clouded by myth and uncertainty. The facts that are known--that he was born in the late fourth century in Roman Britain, was captured by Irish raiders at the age of 16 and sold into slavery, and escaped six years later to Britain where he became a priest and later a bishop before returning to Ireland to proselytize--give only a vague sense of the man behind the legends. J.B. Bury{u2019}s biography, which remains the definitive work on the saint, dispels many of the myths and paints a vivid and exacting portrait of the world around St. Patrick, revealing the influences and inspirations that transformed him from a minor fifth century missionary into the patron saint of Ireland and a source of living inspiration for countless people--the Irish above all--some 1,500 years after his death."--Publisher's description
The ancient Greek historians by J. B Bury( Book )

38 editions published between 1908 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Bury covers the entire range of Greek historical writing form from its inception in the pseudo-historical aspects of the epics to the influence of Greek thought on Roman historiography. He shows how the idea of history became separated from the concept of recording and inventing mythologies, the introduction of a rationalistic view of history, the concept of political analysis, the influence of rhetoric on historical methodology, the effects of philosophy and the rise of antiquarianism on history, and dozens of similarly important topics. - back of book
A history of the Eastern Roman Empire from the fall of Irene to the accession of Basil I, A.D. 802-867 by J. B Bury( Book )

49 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical historian J.B. Bury (1861-1927) was the author of a history of Greece which was a standard textbook for over a century. He also wrote on the later history of the Roman empire, and, in this 1912 work, examines the Byzantine empire in the ninth century. The book is a continuation of his two-volume History of the Later Roman Empire of 1889, which covers the period from 395 to 800 (and is also reissued in this series), and reflects Bury's belief that the century-long so-called Amorian epoch 'is not a mere epilogue, and is much more than a prologue' between the better-known periods of Byzantine history that preceded and followed it. In this period, iconoclasm again became a cause of civil strife, and wars on the eastern frontier were a strain on the military resources of the empire, while at least two of the emperors were murdered
The life of St. Patrick and his place in history by J. B Bury( Book )

30 editions published between 1905 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic biography first appeared in 1905 and still offers a valuable resource to scholars, theologians, and others interested in Irish history. The well-documented study depicts St. Patrick's early life in fourth-century Britain during the Roman occupation, his abduction by Irish raiders, his conversion to Christianity, and his lifelong efforts to convert pagans and found churches."--Provided by publisher

A history of the later Roman empire, from Arcadius to Irene (395 A.D. to 800 A.D.) by John Bagnell Bury( Book )

32 editions published between 1889 and 2017 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical historian J. B. Bury (1861-1927) was the author of a history of Greece which was a standard textbook for over a century. He also wrote on later periods, and, in this two-volume work of 1889, examines Byzantine history from 395 to 800. Arguing for the underlying continuity of the Roman empire from the time of Augustus until 1453, Bury nevertheless begins his account in the year in which, on the death of Theodosius I, the empire was divided into eastern and western parts, and Constantinople began to take on the metropolitan role formerly held by Rome. Broadly chronological, but with an extended section on the state of the empire at the end of the fourth century, Volume 1 covers the period to the deaths of Belisarius and Justinian in 565, examining the decline of paganism, the inroads of 'barbarians', and the cultural milieu of the early Byzantine empire
The imperial administrative system in the ninth century; with a revised text of the Kletorologion of Philotheos by J. B Bury( )

24 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical historian J.B. Bury (1861-1927) was the author of a history of Greece (also reissued in this series) which served as a standard textbook for over a century. He also wrote on the later history of the Roman empire, and, in this 1911 work, examines the text (of which he provides an edition) of the 'Kletorologion' of Philotheos, an otherwise unknown official at the court of Byzantine Emperor Leo VI in the late ninth century. The work is a guide to precedence and court hierarchy, which at this time were of great political and social importance. Bury uses it to throw light on an administrative process in a period from which few other administrative documents have survived, but also works backwards from it to the far better recorded period of the reign of Justinian, demonstrating the likely developments of the imperial system in the intervening three centuries
