This lecture presents the text of the speech about Byzantium and the limits of orthodoxy delivered by the author at the 2007 Raleigh Lecture on History held at the British Academy. It suggests that the Byzantines had a high understanding of orthodoxy and that they certainly give the impression of having a comprehensive doctrine. The lecture also discusses the Byzantine habit of self-conscious theorising about orthodoxy.
