Chapter Summary

The life of Michael Psellus is well known as more than 1,000 of his works have survived, among them over 500 letters. His public life makes him a leading member of 11th-century Byzantine culture. Since many of his writings contain autobiographical material, it is possible to extrapolate an outline of his career. This chapter presents a short description of the book Apokriseis synoptikai kai exegeseis pros eroteseis diaphorous kai aporias grapheisai pros ton basilea kyron Michael ton Doukan, 'Synoptic answers and explanations to various questions and difficulties written for the Emperor Lord Michael Doucas', 'De omnifaria doctrina' on Christian-Muslim Relations. This is a collection of short chapters dealing with various subjects, mostly philosophical, and presented to the Emperor Michael VII Doucas either before his accession, when Psellus was his tutor, or during his reign.
