“The History Of The Decline and Fall Of The Roman Empire” by Edward Gibbon
“The History Of The Decline and Fall Of The Roman Empire” unfolds Gibbon’s magnificent and masterful efforts to trace the historical development of the Roman Empire. He undertakes the challenging task to chart the Empire’s rulers, wars and society, for the vast period of time between 180 AD and 1590 AD, and the events that eventually led to the collapse of one of the greatest civilizations of mankind.
In Volume 1 Gibbon focuses on the Empire’s extent and geopolitical reality inherited from Marcus Antoninus and the followed internal struggle for power and control. It ends with the birth of the church, marking the last pagan and first Christian emperors – Constantine and Julian.
