Overview

Caesar and Christ: A History of Roman Civilization and of Christianity from Their Beginnings to A.D. 325 by Will Durant

In this epic survey of a thousand years of roman history, you will discover:

  • the birth of the world's first true republic
  • the world-conquering Roman army---undefeated, unafraid and vegetarian
  • Hannibal, Rome's brilliant African arch-enemy, who transported his army of elephants over the Alps from Spain in an attempt to invade Rome by surprise
  • Julius Caesar---who brought Western Europe under Roman rule, defeated his rival Pompey in a civil war, took over the government, conquered Egypt, and forgave his enemies, only to be assassinated by his friends
  • the Roman Emperors, from the murderous madman Caligula to the philosophical sage Marcus Aurelius.
  • the agony of Roman-occupied Judea and the advent of Jesus of Nazareth
  • the exhaustion of Rome, the bringer of order, taxes, war, class conflict, and plague; the corrosion of its values and faith, and its surrender to invaders from the North
  • the struggle of the rising church, and Christianity's conquest of the empire from within.
