Show 76 I really enjoyed this series of lectures. This is quite different than most of our podcasts. It is completely apolitical. This is the series introduction and first lecture. Visit http://www.anders.com/lectures/lars_brownworth/12_byzantine_rulers/ for all the lectures. Podcast rating 5 out of 10
12 Byzantine Rulers. The history of the
Byzantine Empire by Lars Brownworth.
This history lecture podcast covers the little known Byzantine Empire through the study of twelve of its greatest rulers. Mr. Lars Brownworth presents this series for free through this website and the podcast section of the iTunes store.
Mr. Brownworth teaches History at The Stony Brook School on Long Island, New York, New York. His passion for Byzantine history has taken him on travels from the furthest reaches of the Byzantine Empire right into Constantinople, (present day Istanbul) the very heart of Byzantium. He has traveled and studied Byzantine history extensively and produced this lecture series giving us this concise overview.
