Read an Excerpt


mained invincible and immortal; or if its excessive magnitude, and the instability of human affairs, had opposed such perpetual continuance, its vital and constituent members might have separately preserved their vigour and independence. But in the decline of the empire, when every principle of health and life had been exhausted, the tardy application of this partial remedy was incapable of producing any important or salutary effects. The emperor Honorius expresses his surprise, that he must compel the reluctant provinces to accept a privilege which they should ardently have solicited. A fine of three, or even five, pounds of gold, was imposed on the absent representatives; who seem to have declined this imaginary gift of a free constitution, as the last and most cruel insult of their oppressors. CHAP. XXXII. Arcadiusemperor of the east.Administration and disgrace of Entroplus.Revolt of Gainas.Persecution of St. John Chrysostom.Theodosins II. emperor of the east.His sister Puloheria.His wife Endocia.The Persian war, and division of Armenia. The division of the Roman world between the sons of Th empire Theodosius, marks the final establishment of the empire A.d. 395' of the east, which, from the reign of Arcadius to the "30'f taking of Constantinople by the Turks, subsisted one Arcdin. thousand and fifty-eight years, in a state of premature 4o. and perpetual decay. The sovereign of that .empire assumed, and obstinately retained, the vain, and at length fictitious, title of Emperor of the Romans ; and the hereditary appellations of Caesar and Augustus continued to declare that he was the legitimate successor of the first of men, who had reigned over the first of nations. The palaceof Constantinople rivalled, and perhaps excelled, the magnificence of Persia; and the...

    Great source of research

    A remarkable historical resource, 'History' covers all the details and answered many of my historical questions with regards to the Roman Empire. It was a tough reader, yet I was able to retain alot of the information contained in this HUGE text!

    BORING!!!!!!!!!!!

    i am sorry to all the historians out there that seem to think that this is an excellent book but I found it unreadable and finally just gave up. My father is a professor of archealogy and he had recommended that I read it but I just couldn't make any sense of it. I was looking for a good entertaining book about the Roman empire and this was not it. Maybe I am just not intellectual enough-sorry Dad!
