Byzantine Stories Episode 4 – Procopius of Caesarea. Part 1 – A Full Life

As far as we know Procopius is not featured in the famous mosaic but it remains the obvious image to pair with his work

Procopius of Caesarea (c500-555) was the biographer of Justinian. Officially he simply wrote the history of the Emperor’s wars. But thanks to the “Secret History” and “The Buildings” he managed to provide an all round view of the Basileus including both bile and gushing praise. In part one we follow the outline of Procopius’ life story and open his books to see what was in each work (40 minutes).

    $7 per episode is just a bit steep IMHO.

    • The money is not just for the individual episode. It’s to help pay for the hundreds of hours of free content, the hosting and all other expenses to keep me podcasting. I’m sure you understand.

        I get that, and you deserve all the money you can get, of course. But I’d probably name them as the fundraiser episodes that they are, in that case. Like Mike Duncan did. πŸ™‚

      • I think $7 is a fair price for what long time followers of the podcast would immediately recognize as an off narrative bonus episode.
