Byzantion nea hellás

On-line version ISSN 0718-8471


CURTA, Florin. SKLAVINIAI AND ETHNIC ADJECTIVES: A CLARIFICATION. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2011, n.30, pp.85-98. ISSN 0718-8471.

It has been recently claimed that the first reference to Sklavinia as a territory inhabited primarily by Slavs is to be found in Theophanes Confessor. A particular passage in Theophylact Simocatta in which the word appears has been supposedly mistranslated. In reality, the passage in question contains a reference to Sklavinia at least 150 years older than the Chronographia of Theophanes.

Keywords : Theophlyact Simocatta; Slavs; Sklavinia; Vita Willibaldi.
