Considering that this volume opens with a chapter by Averil Cameron and closes, after the excellent chapters by the contributors, with an epilogue courtesy of Anthony Kaldellis, little needs to be said by way of introduction. However, the chapters will be summarised after considering Procopius’ career, his importance and the aims of this volume, recent and forthcoming scholarship on Procopius and contemporary historical writing. The chapters are mainly concerned with Procopius’ De Bellis / Wars, although aspects of his Anecdota / Secret History and De Aedificiis / Buildings (hereafter Wars, Secret History and Buildings) are considered within some of them. Finally, some further research ideas will be outlined.
