Nikephoros, Patriarch of Constantinople, Cyril Mango

“Cyril Mango’s new commentary on the Breviarium of Nicephorus, with his introduction, text, translation, notes, and indices, becomes the safest guide to the vexed events of the seventh and eighth centuries . . . the first truly authoritative treatment of the period ever. . . At a time when so much published on Byzantium offers tentative theories about marginal subjects, this is a thorough study of a central text by a scholar who may well be the world’s leading expert on Byzantine history and literature.” Speculum
