Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Career and Writings of Demetrius Kydones: A Study of Fourteenth-Century Byzantine Politics, Religion and Society contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, abbreviations and an introduction of the book. Demetrius Kydones (c. 1324-c. 1397) is a figure well-known to Byzantine historians, as well as to many others, particularly where questions arise concerning the intellectual and political relationship between Byzantium and the west. This book aims to restore Demetrius as a 'Byzantine' source, and, in doing so, to discuss what light his writings can shed on the development of his society. It concentrates on Demetrius' intellectual context, dealing with both his credentials as a Byzantine scholar and his more unusual interest in western theology, for which he is particularly renowned. The chapter, then, gives an account of the characteristics of Demetrius' own thought, as expressed in his writings.

Keywords: Demetrius Kydones; Demetrius' intellectual context; fourteenth-century Byzantine politics; western theology
