Humanities West Book Discussion: Count Belisarius by Robert Graves

Wed, Mar 12 2014 - 5:30pm

The sixth century was not a peaceful time for the Roman empire and its capital, Constantinople. Invaders threatened on all fronts, but they grew to respect and fear the name of Belisarius, Justinian's greatest general. Robert Graves (also author of I, Claudius) again demonstrates his command of a vast historical subject, creating a startling and vivid picture of a decadent era. Discussion led by Lynn Harris.
