History of Byzantine Culture
Author(s): Heinrich Gelzer
Subject(s): Cultural history, Middle Ages
Published by: CEEOL Collections / Digital Reproductions
Summary/Abstract: Introductory remark by the son of the author: I publish this work from the inheritance of my father. It was his last work; he had not quite fin-ished it yet when death overtook him. This explains the different treatment of the individual chap-ters; he would probably have worked through everything, added some things. The fact that it is published so late relies to the fact that it was originally intended for a larger collection. As an out-sider, I could not judge how far 'Byzantine cultural history' might be outdated or obsolete. I there-fore approached the best expert in the field of Byzantine philology, Professor Krumbacher in Mu-nich. On his advice, I dare to hand them over to the public and I hope that this last work of my father will bring some value to his friends and to the growing number of Byzantines.
