The Composition of Procopius, De Aedificiis

Abstract

1. The De aedificiis in its present form is unfinished. The existence of major differences in the text of the two principal surviving MSS gives reason to suspect that there were two redactions of the treatise. 2. The treatise was written in an effort to offset the impression produced by the calamities which marked the last years of Justinian's reign, and in order to bolster the Emperor's prestige.
