Cover of 'Digenis Akritas'

Digenis Akritas
The Two-Blood Border Lord—The Grottaferrata Version
By Denison B. Hull
· Translation by Denison B. Hull
· Introduction by Denison B. Hull

Among the epic romances of post–Barbarian Europe, such as Roland and El Cid, Digenis Akritas has been the least known in the West—outside Greece. It is the story of a half–breed prince who guarded the eastern border of the Roman Empire of Byzantium on the Euphrates in the tenth century.
