Reinhold Zwerger is famous because of the excellent map he made of the Holy Mountain, which I used intensively during my hikes in the past years. In the near future I will pay some extra attention to the book he wrote “Wege am Athos”, which I ordered today (a signed copy!), read more or order here.

    Het boek is ook in het nederlands vertaald onder de titel ‘Byzantium, het verrassende leven van een middeleeuws rijk’, uitgeverij Bulaaq, Amsterdam. ISBN 978 90 5460 157 9.
    Wellicht is de nederlandse druk uit 2009 in Nederland makkelijker te verkrijgen dan de engelstalige druk uit 2007.
    Het boek, dat Byzantium thematisch behandelt, is ook wat mij betreft een aanrader !

    Hans, ik lees het in het Nederlands. Het is inderdaad niet chronologisch en mede daardoor zeer de moeite waard.
