Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book takes on a period of immense historical change and explains how Constantine came to accept Christianity, not only as a spiritual force, but as a political institution that reconstituted the empire. It is important for scholars and students alike."—Eve D'Ambra, Vassar College


“This account is lucid . . . even supportive of the Berensonian view that Constantinian sculptors were ‘inept,’ rather than expressing a different sensibility. . . . A sober account of a seminal transformation. Highly recommended.”—Choice

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Eve Dambra on March 31, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This books focuses on Rome at a crucial historical period for its development as a city, empire, and symbol of civilization. The author, who has spent nearly a lifetime engaged in these issues, provides much more than a synthesis of the often contentious and thorny scholarship. For the archaeological and art historical material, he gives standard interpretations their due but is not afraid of expressing ideas that may go against the grain of some contemporary trends. There is a breadth of scholarship here that is worn lightly and does not bog down the text. The book is important for its consideration of the so-called end of Rome and the beginnings of the Christian empire.
