Abstract

Manuel II Palaeologus was one of the most learned and distinguished emperors of Byzantium. An enlightened statesman and a skilled diplomat Manuel reigned in a critical period for the Empire (1391–1425), when its unity and survival was threatened by internal divisions and external menaces. His cautious policy towards the union of the Churches was dictated by the political realities and his own experiences. Under constant pressure, Manuel found solace in his studies. Surrounded by a circle of scholars and theologians, time and official duties permitting, he pursued his interests in literature and theology. A humane ruler and a thinker, in the eyes of his contemporary Manuel embodied the ideal of the Platonic philosopher-king.
