St. 500-1000 CE: Landscape, Climate and the Survival of an Empire

Paper given by John Haldon

Delivered at Boğaziçi University on 21 November 2017

St Theodore ‘the recruit’ was one of the most important military saints of the Byzantine and wider medieval world, and his cult center, at Euchaïta in northern Turkey, was famous from the fifth century on. Recent research has revealed some aspects of this medieval town, but has also contributed to knowledge of some important environmental changes that took place in the medieval period. This paper will review some of that research and its implications for the history of the Byzantine empire.

John Haldon is Shelby Cullom Davis ’30 Professor of European History, Professor of Byzantine History and Hellenic Studies, and Director of the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies at Princeton University.
