Masters of the Imperial City: Ideological perspectives on the Byzantine emperors of Patria Konstantinoupoleos


  • Jonas Nilsson

Summary, in English

The paper concerns itself with the expressions of ideology in the late 10th century text known as Patria Konstantinoupoleos, the Patria of Constantinople. More specifically, it aims to examine the ideological tendencies and patterns which can be identified regarding the Byzantine emperors, individually and collectively. It takes a critical stance towards parts of the research that has previously been carried out on the subject and aims to refute some of its conclusions through critical examination and a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the text.
