La 4eme de couv. indique : "Un premier volume avait présenté la fondation de l'Empire byzantin. Cet ouvrage, consacré aux siècles suivants (VIIe-XIIIe s.), est également le fruit du travail d'une équipe associant des spécialistes des principales disciplines, seuls capables de prendre en compte les changements historiographiques. L'époque médiévale voit la transformation de ce vaste Empire multiethnique, presque abattu par les invasions slaves et surtout arabo-musulmanes, en un État recentré sur la population grecque, même s'il est encore accueillant aux minorités slave et arménienne et s'il n'a pas perdu toutes ses attaches italiennes. Les souverains byzantins opèrent un spectaculaire redressement qui fait de Byzance la plus grande puissance chrétienne des Xe-XIe siècles, avant d'être débordée par un nouvel adversaire venu des steppes d'Orient, les Turcs. La faculté d'adaptation de l'Empire contredit l'image d'une société conservatrice et immuable que les Byzantins ont eux-mêmes léguée, prétendant que leurs innovations n'étaient qu'un retour aux vraies traditions. Les institutions, les hiérarchies, les armées ont été plus d'une fois modifiées pour faire face aux nouvelles menaces ou assurer l'expansion. Même le pouvoir impérial s'est transformé en un système familial et dynastique porté à son point de perfection par les Comnènes. Mais l'Empire a trouvé son identité dans le christianisme orthodoxe, qui se construit, après le refus de l'iconoclasme, sur une dévotion aux images inspirant un art religieux spécifique. L'Église byzantine s'éloigne de l'Église de Rome dont elle refuse la prééminence disciplinaire, mais étend sa sphère d'influence vers des Églises-filles, en Bulgarie ou en Russie. Lors de cette période, la culture byzantine se réapproprie les lettres helléniques païennes et se persuade de sa supériorité. La puissance militaire et économique des Latins, aboutissant à la prise de Constantinople en 1204, pousse les Byzantins vers un repli identitaire qui conduira à la création d'un «État-nation» à l'époque suivante."

Actes de Vatopédi by Jacques Lefort( )

7 editions published in 2019 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third and final volume (in two parts) of the Actes de Vatopédi, including the documents dating from 1377 to 1500, is one of the most significant of the "Archives de l'Athos" series. The documentary material of the monastery of Vatopedi for this period is exceptionally rich and sheds light on a number of often little-known topics, such as the confiscation of monastic estates by the Byzantines after 1371, the conditions in Macedonia after Constantinople reconquered the province in 1403, and the status of the Athonite monasteries and their properties after the first and the second Ottoman conquest of Macedonia, in the 1380s and 1420s, respectively. The text volume begins with an introduction on the monastery's history and real estate in the period in question. This is followed by the description, summary, commentary and edition of 99 Greek documents, most of them published for the first time, as well as of two Latin documents. The volume also includes summaries and commentaries of 8 Slavic and 38 Ottoman documents and a study on the monastery's properties as known from the late 15th- and early 16th-c. Ottoman tax registers. Finally, the reader will find a very detailed general index. A separate album of 100 plates contains reproductions of the edited documents and of two seals
