Exonian publishes translation of ancient text
Geoffrey Greatrex (1986, Lit. Hum.) has published a new book, The Chronicle of Pseudo-Zachariah Rhetor, in collaboration with C. Horn and R. Phenix (Liverpool University Press, 2011).
The Chronicle, attributed to Zachariah of Mytilene, is a source of plentiful information on 5th and 6th century Christianity, including letters and anecdotes that shed light on some bitter theological disputes. This is the first translation into a modern language in over 100 years of this important document in the history of the Church, and it is sure to be a valuable resource for those seeking to understand the development of Christianity.
