From the introduction:

This booklet is meant for college kids and students who would
like to benefit in regards to the Byzantine global from basic sources.
It has been designed typically when you already recognize some
classical Greek, yet i am hoping that it will probably additionally tempt medieval
historians and scholars of contemporary Greek literature to make
their first direct acquaintance with an surprisingly fascinating
period of history.
My item has been to choose between prose writers a number
of consultant extracts with the intention to provide a common picture
of Byzantine existence and tradition. the one current anthology
of this sort is a bit booklet by means of G. Soyter, Byzantinische Ge-
schichtsschreiber, Heidelberg 1929, which turns out to me too
short and restricted in scope to be satisfactory.
In the choice the following provided to the reader the historians
claim the lion's percentage. that's in basic terms to be anticipated. Although
they usually started working with the slender target of writing
military and political background, they authorised themselves
digressions from the most subject that are admirably suited
for inclusion the following. there's additionally little question that the historians
are the easiest writers of medieval Greece. purely their works
can stand the try out of being translated right into a smooth language
for the advantage of a much wider viewers than specialist scholars.
Of the opposite literary kinds the letter is healthier represented, and
throughout the interval it used to be practised with luck by means of school
masters, bishops, statesmen or even emperors.
