    Political Freedom in Byzantium: The Rhetoric of Liberty and the Periodization of Roman History.Anthony Kaldellis - 2018 - History of European Ideas 44 (6):795-811.
    ABSTRACTThis paper proposes an intellectual history of the idea that the later Roman empire and, subsequently, the whole of Byzantium were less ‘free’ in comparison to the Roman Republic. Anxiety over diminished freedom recurred throughout Roman history, but only a few specific expressions of it were enshrined in modern thought as the basis on which to divide history into periods. The theorists of the Enlightenment, moreover, invented an unfree Byzantium for their own political purposes and not by examining the facts (...)

    The Byzantine Role in the Making of the Corpus of Classical Greek Historiography: A Preliminary Investigation.Anthony Kaldellis - 2012 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 132:71-85.
    The selective survival of the corpus of ancient Greek historiography was in large part due to Byzantine historical and religious interests, combined with the ancient valorization, on literary grounds, of the three Classical historians. Our corpus generally reflects the Byzantine interest in Roman history, especially regime-changes, and sacred history, especially the Hellenistic context of Jewish history. Selections from ancient historians dealing with those themes were, in some cases, circulating independently already from the tenth century. The Byzantines had little interest in (...)

    Mothers and Sons, Fathers and Daughters: The Byzantine Family of Michael Psellos.Anthony Kaldellis (ed.) - 2006 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    "Michael Psellos was the 'Cicero of Byzantium,' except that his interests were more wide-ranging than those of his Roman predecessor. In addition to being a politician, poet, and writer of letters, speeches, and treatises on philosophy and rhetoric, he was an innovative historian and a practical educator who interested himself in all aspects of learning, from mathematics and medicine to theurgy. Before now, only his 'Chronographia' has been at all well known. Anthony Kaldellis has done a great service in making (...)
