Procopius: The Secret History

Procopius of Caesarea (c.500 CE-c.554 CE) was a prominent late antique scholar. Accompanying the Roman general Belisarius in the wars of the Emperor Justinian, he became the principal historian of the 6th century, writing the Wars (or Histories), the Buildings of Justinian and the celebrated (and infamous) Secret History. The Secret History was discovered centuries later in the Vatican Library and published by Niccolo Alamanni in 1623. The Secret History covers roughly the same years as the first seven books of the History of Justinian’s Wars and appears to have been written after they were published. Written privately by the historian to record his disgust of the Emperor Justinian and his wife and co-emperor Theodora.
