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).
