Justinian: statecraft, law, and self-glorification, with Peter Sarris

#Justinian: statecraft, law, and self-glorification, with Peter Sarris

A conversation with Peter Sarris about the emperor Justinian (527-565), on the 401st anniversary of the rediscovery of Prokopios’ Secret History. We talk about Justinian’s goals, accomplishments, and victims, all of which continue to spark debate and controversy, just as they did during his own lifetime.

Peter Sarris is Professor of Late Antique, Medieval and Byzantine Studies at the University of Cambridge. The conversation is based on Peter’s new book Justinian: Emperor, Soldier, Saint.
