The Chronicle attributed to Zachariah of Mytilene is one of the most important sources for the history of the church from the Council of Chalcedon in 451 to the early years of the reign of Justinian (527-565). The author who compiled the work in Syriac in A.D. 568/9 drew extensively on the Ecclesiastical History of Zachariah the Rhetor, who later became bishop of Mytilene and ended up giving his name to the whole work. But Zachariah's Ecclesiastical History, which forms books iii to vi of Pseudo-Zachariah's work and covers the period from 451 to 491, is just one of a range of sources cited by this later compiler. For the period that follows, he turned to other well-informed sources, which cover both church and secular affairs. His reporting of the siege of Amida in 502-3 clearly derives from an eye-witness account, while for the reign of the Emperor Justinian he offers not only numerous documents, but also an independent narrative of the Persian war, as well as notices on the Nika riot and events in the West. This translation (of books iii-xii) is the first into a modern language since 1899 and is equipped with a detailed commentary and introduction, along with contributions by two eminent Syriac scholars, Sebastian Brock and Witold Witakowski.
Comments to eBook The Chronicle of Pseudo-Zachariah Rhetor: Church and War in Late Antiquity (Translated Texts for Historians LUP)
MarF
This is a key source for the second half of the 5th century and the start of the 6th century. The only previous translation into English is more than a century old. The squabbles over Chalcedon are very confusing as there multiple sides but the comprehensive but concise introduction helps clarify the main protagonists and their points of view.

This book picks up after the Church Historians Sozoman, Socrates and Theodoret finish up.

This is the record of both ecclesiastical and military history of the Eastern Roman empire from the Council at Chalcedon (A.D. 451) and the death of Justinian I (A.D 565) The Pseudo-Zachariah was himself a compiler of materials, the largest of which is a semi-Monophysite ecclesiastical history written by Bishop Zachariah. For me, the text is a treasure of relics from a distant past. You get a full church history of the later 5th century from a moderate Monophysite point of view from the reign of Marcian to that of Zeno. Then when Anastasius becomes emperor you also get military history, such as an alternate account of the siege of Amida in A.D. 502, or the Persian war in early reign of Justinian. The compiler included documents, such as the Henotikon issued by emperor Zeno and the letters written by Severus of Antioch and Julian of Halicarnassus, which represented a schism in the Monophysite church.

Some extra bits: The book has good maps in the back and a list, not only of emperors, but of all patriarchs in all 5 sees. The Monophysite ones are italicized. Also the book uses footnotes rather than endnotes. For me, this is a Godsend.
