Tatakis's classic historical account, which traces the evolution of Byzantine thought from the early sixth century to the fourteenth century, is the only work of its kind available in English. In addition to Tatakis's bibliographies, this edition includes a new thematic bibliography, a general bibliography of relevant works through the present, a name index, and a subject index. An invaluable resource for scholars and an accessible text for students, theologians, and anyone interested in the evolution of Eastern European thought. Translated from the 1940 French edition of Presses Universitaires de France.
Basil Tatakis (1896-1996) was Professor of Philosophy at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he also served as Dean of the School of Philosophy.
