Fourteen Byzantine rulers; the Chronographia by Michael Psellus( Book )

38 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A translation of the Chronographia, which forms the principal source of the history of the Eastern Empire during the period (A.D. 976-1078) when Byzantium declined from a military power to an effete bureaucracy. The Christian scholar, Michael Psellus, who was adviser, friend and tutor to successive emperors, used his first-hand acquaintance with the politics of the imperial court to write a memoir of his own times. A keen student of Plato and the Greeks, turned his account into a work of art which vividly illustrates the Byzantine way of life

Michael Psellos on literature and art : a Byzantine perspective on aesthetics by Michael Psellus( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Psellos has long been known as a key figure in the history of Byzantine literary and intellectual culture, but his theoretical and critical reflections on literature and art are little known outside of a small circle of specialists. Most famous for his Chronographia, a history of eleventh-century Byzantine emperors and their reigns, Psellos also excelled in describing as well as prescribing practices and rules for literary discourse and visual culture. The ambition of Michael Psellos on Literature and Art is to illustrate an important chapter in the history of Greek literary and art criticism and introduce precisely this aspect of Psellian writing to a wider public. The editors of this volume present thirty Psellian texts, all of which have been translated - some in part, most in their entirety - into English. In the majority of cases, the works are translated for the first time in any modern language, and several are discussed at length here for the first time. They are grouped into two separate sections, which roughly translate to two areas of theoretical reflection associated with the modern terms 'literature' and 'art.'0

"This masterpiece of Byzantine literature is now available for the first time in a German translation. The Greek text is based on a new critical edition appearing in the Millennium Studies series. The imperial counselor, polymath, and writer Michael Psellos (1018-ca. 1076) portrays the rulers of Byzantium from Basil II to Michael VII, and, along the way, provides an extensive account of his own role and life."--
