This thoroughly revised edition of The Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity 365 ' 600 A.D. provides both a detailed introduction to late antiquity, and a direct challenge to the conventional views of the end of the empire. Leading scholar Averil Cameron focuses on the changes and continuities in Mediterranean society as a whole before the Arab conquests and in a new chapter surveys the situation in the west after the death of Justinian and covers the Byzantine wars with Persia, the reign of Heraclius, the Arab conquests and the establishment of the Umayyad caliphate.With modern, in-depth archaeological evidence, this all-round historical and thematic study of the west and eastern empires became the standard work on the period. The new edition takes account of recent research on topics such as the barbarians, and the 'invasions', periodization, and questions of decline or continuity in the archaeological evidence, as well as recent interest in church councils, orthodoxy and heresy and the separation of the miaphysite church in the sixth century. It contains a new introductory survey of recent scholarship on the fourth century AD, and has an updated bibliography and suggestions for further reading.The Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity 365 ' 600 A.D. continues to be the benchmark for publications on the history of Late Antiquity and is indispensible to anyone studying the period.
Averil Cameron was until recently Professor of Late Antique and Byzantine History at the University of Oxford and Warden of Keble College Oxford.
