A History of the Ostrogoths

English | 1984 | ISBN: 0253328314 | 320 Pages | PDF | 52.7 MB

Utilizing sparse sources, the author has nevertheless woven an understandable and useful history of these Germanic invaders of the Roman Empire. Due to the sparcity of sources otherwise, much of the book necessarily centers upon the person and activity of Theodoric the Great. Very revealing is that the Ostrogoths were primarily agriculturalists rather than nomads. Particularly useful to any student of the European "Dark Ages" is the detailed discussion of how the Ostrogoths in general and Theodoric in particular were a tolerant people - especially for that era - and consciously preserved much of what remained of the West Roman governmental system and culture and thus preserving it for a half-century longer and transmitting it to later generations. The story is intriguing and masterfully told with great clarity.
