Drape the Couches

by David Galvin and Simon Hackney

Destined to last twelve hundred years, Rome again finds herself at breaking point. One man and one man alone, Caesar Diocletianus, has to act quickly as barbarian hordes cross his frontiers and internal revolts spread. In appointing the aggressive Maximianus as co-ruler, he defiantly splits the Roman world in two. One is to rule in the East; the other in the West.
However, without their sanction or authority, a third claimant quietly sets about taking his chance at seizing the throne. In declaring himself as their brother and a saviour too, would the lowly born but rebellious Mausaeus Carausius’ reign be able to succeed in the far off province of Britannia or would he eventually fall prey to the gods of Rome?
What marks him out – he has stolen their fleet....

The Feasting of Falerius

by David Galvin

A military and economic line has been drawn across the neck of Britannia by the emperor Hadrian and behind it, plough-teams of the wealthy take their agricultural riches from the island.

Julianus Falerius Silvanus, a veteran soldier thought he had qualified to take his place at such a table but lacking the social skills to survive, found himself being cheated out of his land by the elite that he could have died for. There were to be few appeals against corruption this far from Rome and it often drove men to take up the sword in anger. In this case Attius, his son, is left to complete the revenge....

The Roman Province of Judea: The Turbulent History and Legacy of Rome’s Rule in Ancient Israel and Judah

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes ancient accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsJudea is one of the most important regions in the modern world. It is the center of two of the world’s great religions and extremely important to a 3rd. Politically, the whole area is the focus of conflict between Jews and Arabs, as well as different Muslim sects. Its history is littered with wars, insurrections, and religious revolutions. To say that it has had a turbulent past is to understate the case in the extreme. The history of Judea is, of course, inextricably linked to the history of the Jewish people, their dispersal throughout the Mediterranean world, and their reestablishment of the modern state of Israel in the wake of the horrors of the H...

Seven Roman Statesmen

by Charles Oman

THERE WAS A TIME, NOT so very long ago, when the taunt was true that history was written as if it were a mere string of anecdotal biographies of great men. But for the last forty years the pendulum has been swinging so much in the other direction, that it has become necessary to enforce the lesson that the biographies of great men are, after all, a most important part of history. It is well to have conceptions of the streams of tendency and the typical developments of every age, but the blessed word "evolution" will not account for everything, and it is absurd to neglect the influence of the great personalities....

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

The Ancient History of the Egyptians, Carthaginians, and Assyrians

by Charles Rollin

EXCERPT (Preface):The Usefulness of Profane History, especially with regard to Religion.The study of profane history would little deserve to have a serious attention, and a considerable length of time bestowed upon it, if it were confined to the bare knowledge of ancient transactions, and an uninteresting inquiry into the æras when each of them happened. It little concerns us to know, that there were once such men as Alexander, Cæsar, Aristides, or Cato, and that they lived in this or that period; that the empire of the Assyrians made way for that of the Babylonians, and the latter for the empire of the Medes and Persians, who were themselves subjected by the Macedonians, as these were afterwards by the Romans.But it highly concerns us to know, by what methods those empires were founded;...

Chaucer and the Poets: An Essay on Troilus and Criseyde

by Winthrop Weatherbee

In this sensitive reading of Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, Winthrop Wetherbee redefines the nature of Chaucer’s poetic vision. Using as a starting point Chaucer’s profound admiration for the achievement of Dante and the classical poets, Wetherbee sees the Troilus as much more than a courtly treatment of an event in ancient history—it is, he asserts, a major statement about the poetic tradition from which it emerges. Wetherbee demonstrates the evolution of the poet-narrator of the Troilus, who begins as a poet of romance, bound by the characters’ limited worldview, but who in the end becomes a poet capable of realizing the tragic and ultimately the spiritual implications of his story....
