About the Authors
  • This three-volume edition of the History by Nicephorus Gregoras (c. 1295–1360) was edited by Ludwig Schopen (Volumes 1 and 2, 1829–30) and Immanuel Bekker (Volume 3, 1855). The astronomer and historian, Gregoras, became the archivist of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (to whom he proposed a calendar reform similar to that adopted by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582), and was involved in the fruitless negotiations of 1333 to unite the Greek and Latin Churches. The thirty-seven books of Gregoras' History overlap with the work by George Pachymeres, and continue the narrative to 1359. This period is also covered in the History by the ex-Emperor John Cantacuzene, and both these authors are also reissued in this series. Gregoras' History includes the deposition of Andronikos II by his grandson Andronikos III, the latter's death, the accession of John VI Cantacuzene, and the eventual retirement of John to a monastery.
