Re: Some Byzantine Culture at home...reference material
- Salve Senator,
I've been wanting to do this for a couple of weeks now, lol! I'm afraid that even with the cool new Byzantine section I still tend to scatter books all over. Every time I think of it some of the books are at home, or at work. (And of course in the car... you don't want to get caught someplace without a book, lol!)
I'll see if I can get everything together tomorrow, and start a decent list. ;)
In the meantime, I'm pretty excited about the book group in the Literature Sodalitas. Even though I've read "Lost to the West" I'm really looking forward to discussing the material with others!

I consider myself one of the latter, and so I have signed up as a "student of Byzantine history" and it is through the references and library of which I spoke, that I will be able to gain the knowledge and information that I need to continue here in Byzantium Novum and assist in bringing it to it's full fruition.
