Theoderic in Italy by John Moorhead( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The career of Theoderic the Ostrogoth is one of the great success stories of antiquity. From being a ruler of a barbarian people wandering around the Balkans, he became king in Italy (493-526) and established one of the most powerful of the post-Roman states. Thanks to its ample documentation, the Italy of Theoderic allows detailed examination of a period on the frontiers of ancient and medieval, Roman and barbarian. Thanks to his success in attracting the attention of some of the major literary figures of the time, new light is cast on Boethius, Cassiodorus, and Ennodius when they are considered in the context of their connections with the government. Yet Theoderic's reign, so praised by contemporaries, ended amid tension and discord. In this study, Dr Moorhead considers whether the principles in accordance with which he governed entailed the impermanence of his achievement
Gregory the Great by John Moorhead( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory's life culminated in his holding the office of pope (590 - 604). He is generally regarded as one of the outstanding figures in the long line of popes, and by the late ninth century had come to be known as "the Great". Along with Ambrose, Jerome, and Augustine, he played a critical role in the history of his time. During the middle ages his intellectual influence was second only to that of Augustine
The Roman Empire divided, 400-700 by John Moorhead( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new history of what happened to Western Europe, North Africa and the Near and Middle East after the break-up of the Roman Empire in the fifth century, John Moorhead asks whether there was continuity in Western Europe after this event, and to what extent it was sidelined with the ascendancy of Islam and the Arab expansion in the seventh century. The book covers North Africa authoritatively in addition to Italy, Spain and Gaul, and the lands and peoples east of the Meditterranean. Contemporary economic issues, social structures and institutions are examined in a lucid narrative, which interweaves numerous threads into a vivid picture of the empire in the year 500. [publisher]
Victor of Vita : history of the Vandal persecution by Victor( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the peoples who occupied the territories of the Roman Empire in the West in the fifth century, the Vandals are notorious for their persecution of the Catholic inhabitants of Africa. By far the fullest narrative of their doings prior to the time of Justinian is that provided by Victor of Vita, who in 484 wrote the greater part of the work here translated. But Victor does not merely provide an account of the activities of a persecuting people; his work is revelatory of the perspectives of an African Christianity which could look on the activities of the Vandals as merely one chapter in a long history of persecution."--Book cover
Justinian by John Moorhead( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reign of Justinian (527--65) was a key phase in the transition from the Roman empire of classical times to the Byzantine empire of the Middle Ages. Justinian himself, born of peasant stock in a provincial backwater, was one of the greatest rulers yet, despite prodigious achievements, he remained an outsider in the sophisticated society of Constantinople. Here, John Moorhead reinterprets Justinian as man and monarch, together with his formidable empress, the ex-actress Theodora, and assesses the evidence from their time for the evolution of a distinctively medieval world
Ambrose : church and society in the late Roman world by John Moorhead( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is an account - political, cultural and theological in its concerns - of the life and thought of St. Ambrose, bishop of Milan from 374 to 395." "John Moorhead sets Ambrose's life in its full historical and theological context; he discusses his relationships with the leading secular and religious figures of his day; and he explores the origins and impact of his thought." "Perhaps most valuably of all, he provides a meaningful introduction to Ambrose's writings - their occasion, character and concerns - for non-specialists, few of whom are likely to be familiar with them at first hand."--Jacket
The popes and the Church of Rome in late antiquity by John Moorhead( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popes and the Church of Rome in Late Antiquity places the history of the papacy in a broader context, by comparing Rome with other major sees to show how it differed from these, evaluating developments beyond Rome which created openings for the extension of papal authority. Closer to home, the book considers the ability of the Roman church to gain access to wealth, retain it in difficult times, and disburse it in ways that enhanced its authority.--Provided by publisher

Roman empire divided : 400-700 ad by John Moorhead( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 400 the mighty Roman Empire was almost as large as it had ever been; within three centuries, advances by Germanic peoples in western Europe, Slavs in eastern Europe and Arabs around the eastern and southern shores of the Mediterranean had brought about the loss of most of its territory. Ranging from Britain to Mesopotamia, this book explores the changes that resulted from these movements. It shows the different paths away from the classical past that were taken, and how the relatively unified civilization of the ancient Mediterranean gave place to the very different civilizations that c
