This acclaimed edition of Scarlatti's operas is making available authentic versions of the works of one of the key figures in the history of opera. La Caduta (1697) is a pivotal work, bridging the composer's middle and late stylistic periods. It is the first of several collaborations with the noted librettist Silvio Stampiglia, whose characteristic intermingling of serious and comic elements is particularly effective in this work. In her introduction, Hermine Williams discusses the opera itself and performance practices. A translation of the libretto is provided. Hermine Weigel Williams is Lecturer in Religion and the Arts, Hamilton College. The Scarlatti operas now published are Eraclea, Marco Attilio Regolo, Griselda, The Faithful Princess, and Massimo Puppieno.

From its foundation, the city of Constantinople dominated the Byzantine world. It was the seat of the emperor, the centre of government and church, the focus of commerce and culture, by far the greatest urban centre; its needs in terms of supplies and defense imposed their own logic on the development of the empire. Byzantine Constantinople has traditionally been treated in terms of the walled city and its immediate suburbs. In this volume, containing 25 papers delivered at the 27th Spring Symposium of Byzantine Studies held at Oxford in 1993, the perspective has been enlarged to encompass a wider geographical setting, that of the city’s European and Asiatic hinterland. Within this framework a variety of interconnected topics have been addressed, ranging from the bare necessities of life and defence to manufacture and export, communications between the capital and its hinterland, culture and artistic manifestations and the role of the sacred.
