    Late Byzantium Reconsidered offers a unique collection of essays analysing the artistic achievements of Mediterranean centres linked to the Byzantine Empire between , when the Palaiologan dynasty re-conquered Constantinople, and the decades after , when the Ottomans took the city, marking the end of the Empire. This is an excellent book, indispensable for scholars of asceticism in the later Roman world, and well worth the attention of a broader audience.

      A Short History of Byzantium is John Julius Norwich's abridgement of his 3 volume work.

It has its origin as a spiritual blessing in the monastic world of Late Antiquity, becomes a popular social networking strategy among laypeople from the ninth century onwards, and still finds application in recent : Claudia Rapp.

    Another strand of her research is the reception of the Greek ethical tradition (especially Plutarch and Aristotle) in late Byzantium and the Enlightenment. Her current book project is on Galen’s works of popular philosophy and their interplay with his medical theory and practice. Irvine Welsh’s novel Trainspotting (), later made into the hugely popular film of the same name, is an essential book in any list of best contemporary Scottish novels. Trainspotting is part of a movement in contemporary Scottish literature which reclaims the use of raw Scots dialect – Welsh transcribes his native dialect phonetically – as a valid language for literature.
