The best I know is volume 2 of Jaroslav Pelikan's The Christian Tradition, The Spirit of Eastern Christendom. Unfortunately it is not in Logos.

The Gospel is not ... a "new law," on the contrary, ... a "new life." - William Julius Mann

I'd recommend  this series: Church in History

I wasn't super impressed with the first one; it was pretty standard as far as early church histories go. Skimming through the others, they look to be much better. They don't focus exclusively on Byzantium, but it's written from the Eastern perspective so the emphasis is on the East.

I'd second Pelikan's work as well.

I just did a very helpful search for Byzantium and came up with these three and numerous other resources that I never knew applied to my search question. (thanks again John).
