Author: Bernardino de Sahagun
Title: The Florentine Codex
POV: In Sahagun's account of gender roles in traditional Aztec society, he details the duty of men going into warfare while women were obligated to a life full of rigorous domestic chores in order to show the drastic difference between their "highest honors" in life.

Title: Antapodosis
POV: Bishop Liuprand writes as a diplomat between three strong world powers during that time. He describes the wealth of the king vividly and therefore causes his home country to seem humble. His statement can be understood as admiration toward Constantinople or envy that the wealth of Italy is not as great. Author: Procopious
Title: History of the Wars
POV: Procopious wrote about the "reconquering" program that Justinian developed during his rule. Accompanying General Belisarius on these conquests as well as his scholarly background gave his words some accuracy, but his dedication to Justinian and Byzantium may have caused some bias. POWER.
