The Byzantine Empire began in the third century A.D., after the fall of the Roman Empire, and lasted for a thousand years. Christianity, persecuted in ancient Rome, achieved its ascendancy in the New Roman Empire that arose from the old. Professor Madden, a noted scholar of the Crusades, makes us comfortable in his classroom. His avuncular style is pleasing and helps make the material accessible. Come along on Madden's walking tour of ancient Constantinople and engage your imagination in a way only exceptional storytelling can. Ancient history comes alive like a historical novel, but the professor's passion is real. M.C. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
