Approaches to the Byzantine family by Leslie Brubaker( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overall, the diversity of families that existed in Byzantium (blood, fictive, metaphorical) is emphasised, and chapters consider the specific cases of ascetic, monastic, aristocratic and peasant families, as well as the imperial family, which is illuminated by the comparative case of a Caliphal family. The volume is topped and tailed by a Preface and an Afterword by the editors, which address the state of the field and consider the way ahead. Thus the volume is vital in putting the subject of the Byzantine Family in sharp focus and setting the research agenda for the future"--

Roman Castrati : Eunuchs in the Roman Empire. by Shaun Tougher( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Roman empire expanded eastwards, Rome began to encounter foreign powers which used eunuchs in the roles of court attendants, religious figures and teachers. Initially an alien and unacceptable practice, the use of eunuchs in Roman society increased with the emergence of the Roman Emperors. Sporus was the young lover of Nero and in the later Empire Eutropius was the only eunuch ever to be consul. More surprisingly eunuchs such as the orator Favorinus could be free citizens, and the reconquest of Italy under Justinian I was led by a eunuch, Narses. Shaun Tougher examines themes of castration, sex, slavery and political power through individual figures in Roman history
