Editorial Reviews

Review

“This very good book is a welcome contribution . . . and is worthy of the prestigious series in which it appears.”
(Bryn Mawr Classical Review (BMCR) 2011-04-08)

From the Inside Flap

“This book is a true tour de force in the scholarship of the late ancient world. Canepa has bridged the traditional divide between Classical and Iranian studies to illuminate the long-running artistic dialogue between the late Roman and Sasanian Empires. Every chapter offers exciting new insights into the development of late antique art and rituals of power."—Joel Walker, author of The Legend of Mar Qardagh: Narrative and Christian Heroism in Late Antique Iraq

"The Two Eyes of the Earth is a masterly synthesis of a theme of the utmost importance for the political culture of the late antique world."—Peter Brown, author of Power and Persuasion

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rowland on October 23, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book taught me a lot about these cultures. It's obviously written for an academic audience so don't expect an easy read (you also have to get used to all the linguistic signs used in the font). But you can read it a bit at a time and search through the index for lots of interesting anecdotes. Recommended if you are a serious history buff.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent, well-researched book on a fascinating, important and little known subject. If it had been written in comprehensible English, it would be even better.
