Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198219512, Hardcover)

A collection of biographies, this book tells the story of six outstanding men--four of them acknowledged saints--who lived between the 9th and 16th centuries in East Europe and, by birth, profession, or personal circumstances, belonged simultaneously to the Greek and Slav worlds. From Clement of Ohrid, Theophylact of Ohrid, and Vladimir Monomakh, to Sava Nemanjic, Cyprian, and Maximos the Greek, Obolensky's portraits provide rich insight into the diverse cosmopolitan world of Eastern Europe, the role these men played in the history of the Byzantine cultural commonwealth, and the contribution they made to European history.
