Summary
  • In this major study the theme of 'church and society' provides a means of examining the condition of the Byzantine Empire at an important period of its history, up to and well beyond the fall of Constantinople in 1204
  • Of all the Byzantine dynasties, the Comneni came closest to realizing the Caesaro-papist ideal. However, Comnenian control over the orthodox church was both deceptive and damaging: deceptive because the church's institutional strength increased, and with it its hold over lay society; damaging because the church's leadership was demoralised by subservience to imperial authority. Thus the church found itself in a dilemma: it had the strength but not the will to assert itself against an imperial establishment that was in rapid decline by 1180; and neither side was in a position to provide Byzantine society with a sense of purpose. This lack of direction lay at the heart of the malaise that afflicted Byzantium at the time of the fourth crusade. The impasse was resolved largely after 1204, when in exile the orthodox church took the lead in reconstructing Byzantine society
