Procopius

a.k.a. Procopius of Caesarea

Author Code: CPCP

Born: c. 500 AD - Caesarea, Palestine

Died: c. 565 AD - (?) Constantinople

A major historian of the time of the emperor Justinian, Procopius acted as an adviser to Belarius in his Persian campaign of 527 to 531 and again in 533 in his North African campaign. He is known to have been in Constantinople during 542 and described the plague that ravished that city. He is also thought to have been a prefect of Constantinople as late as 562. Procopius' first work, The Wars of Justinian, appeared in 551 in seven volumes. He then added an eighth volume which contained a summary of events up to 553. In the late 550's Procopius wrote The Buildings of Justinian which contains an account of the chief public works undertaken during the reign of Justinian. His final work, known as The Secret History, chronicles the same period as the Wars, but presents Justinian and his court in a less favorable light. The work first came to be printed in the 17th century after its discovery in the Vatican archive.
