    In AD 476 the Roman Empire fell - or rather, its western half did. Its eastern half, which would come to be known as the Byzantine Empire, would endure and often flourish for another 11 centuries. Though its capital would move to Constantinople, its citizens referred to themselves as Roman for the entire duration of the empire's existence.

    Joseph M. Dolan says: "Excellent Book about Little Known History"
    "Western History was preserved by the....West!"

    Story
    Where does Lost to the West rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Lost to the West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization, A Great book, and is a testament against the anti-western history drone: drone, def: n. Ignorant sales or customer service personnel in computer or electronics superstores. Characterized by a lack of even superficial knowledge about the products they sell.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It explains how the west was actually preserved by the "eastern west," or Byzantium, the Eastern Roman Empire, not by Islam. The true story of the preservation of how greek thought and philosophy was preserved within Byzantine tradition and culture and thereby spared for rediscovery, the "renaissance" is eye opening to those hoodwinked by their contemporary professors of the history of early modern europe.
