The figure of the Byzantine emperor, a ruler who sometimes was also designated a priest, has long fascinated the western imagination. Written by one of the world's leading Byzantine scholars, this classic book studies in detail the imperial union of two powers, temporal and spiritual, against the broad background of the relationship between church and state and religious and political spheres.
