East & West - Catharsis

Welcome to the East & West blog.

I'm going to be commenting here not just about my book, and responding to questions about John Lascaris and his adventures, but also writing about Byzantium generally. This isn't the place for long historical diatribes, but if I spot interesting photos, or news stories, or discoveries about the I'll alert you to them here. I'll also be putting up links to good websites with a Byzantine or late Roman theme on this blog.

In the meantime I'm busy getting the book published and available to buy or sample. When it's all ready, I'll be back!
