What kind of person emerges from the Procopius portrayal of Justinian? According to Wikipedia “Procopius was a prominent late antique Greek scholar from Caesarea Maritima Accompanying the Roman general Belisarius in Emperor Justinian’s wars, Procopius became the principal Roman historian of the 6th century, writing the History of the Wars, the Buildings, and the Secret History.”

Procopius begins by describing Justinian’s physical characteristics which aren’t bad, then he describes his personality’s which is bad. When Justinian became Emperor he changed pretty much everything. He basically ruined everything, but has one goal to unify Africa, Italy, Spain, Gaul and Britain with orthodox Christianity.
