From the Publisher:

With his monumental Pendrogon Cycle (a combined 900,000 copies in print), Stephen R. Lawhead made his mark as one of the most popular fantasy writers of the past decade.

His magnificent Byzantium is an epic fantasy about on exotic, fabulous city steeped in myth and history. Joining a small, select bond of monks to present a book to the Holy Roman Emperor himself, Aidan begins a journey from Ireland across the Narrow Sea to the Mediterranean, and into the glittering heart of the Holy Roman Empire and the fabled city Byzantium.

From the Back Cover:

Although born to rule, Aidan lives as a scribe in a remote Irish monastery on the far, wild edge of Christendom. Secure in work, contemplation, and dreams of the wider world, a miracle bursts into Aidan's quiet life. He is chosen to accompany a small band of monks on a quest to the farthest eastern reaches of the known world. To the fabled city of Byzantium, where they are to present a beautiful and costly hand-illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells, to the Emperor of all Christendom. Thus begins an expedition by sea and over land, as Aidan becomes, by turns, a warrior and a sailor, a slave and a sly, a Viking and a Saracen, and finally, a man. He sees more of the world than most men of his time, becoming an ambassador to kings and an intimate of Byzantium's fabled Golden Court. And finally this valiant Irish monk faces the great trial that can confront any man in any age: commanding his own Destiny.
