The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...

History of the Later Roman Empire

by J.b. Bury

THE first of these two volumes might be entitled the “German Conquest of Western Europe,” and the second the “Age of Justinian.” The first covers more than one hundred and twenty years, the second somewhat less than fifty. This disparity is a striking illustration of the fact that perspective and proportion are unavoidably lost in an attempt to tell the story of any considerable period of ancient or early medieval history as fully as our sources allow. Perspective can be preserved only in an outline. The fifth century was one of the most critical periods in the history of Europe. It was crammed with events of great moment, and the changes which it witnessed transformed Europe more radically than any set of political events that have happened since. At that time hundreds of people w...

Ancient and Modern Mysteries of Civilization: The great mystical ways of the ancients

by Gina T. Gibbons

Why is humanity trying to find out what was millions of years ago, what knowledge did ancient civilizations have? We are looking for a source, because we think that by revealing it, we will know why we exist. Mankind wants to find where the starting point is, where it all began, because it thinks that there probably has an answer “for what is all this” and what will be at the end.The history of civilizations has more than one thousand years. During this time, whole cultures appeared and disappeared on the planet, about which very little is currently known. Scientists, however, argue that almost all of them had a very high level of development that surpasses the modern one many times.In the book “Ancient and Modern Mysteries of the World” we will acquaint readers with obscure pages ...

Aristophanes: The Complete Plays

Sons of God Daughters of Men

by Edward Malkowski

Sons of God – Daughters of Men is a history book written for a general audience. It inherits it’s title from the peculiar introduction to the story of Noah’s flood, in the 6th chapter of the biblical Genesis, where the "sons of God" saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and took them as wives. There, they are described as "heroes of old" and "men of renown", supposedly at a time when mankind was just created, eight generations before Noah.
This rather eerie reference to seemingly divine men has been, for myself, a continuous source of curiosity. If they were so famous, why then are there no other writings of their acts and deeds? And why were their offspring and descendents referred to as giants? Never having obtained a plausible answer from anyone, I contend that someth...

Tutankhamun and the Daughter of the Moon

by Monika Mangal

Pharaonic Egypt at the height of her power forms the magnificent backdrop for the story of Tutankhamun's short but eventful life, told from an unique perspective.

His people pin high hopes on him, but with the kingship he hasn't asked for comes the total loss of his personal freedom. Worse still, it drives a wedge between him and Sitiah, the young daughter of Huy, his newly appointed King's Son of Kush. In order to carry out his duties, Huy moves to the far land of Nubia, accompanied by his family.

Imperial Matter: Ancient Persia and the Archaeology of Empires

by Lori Khatchadourian

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. What is the role of the material world in shaping the tensions and paradoxes of imperial sovereignty? Scholars have long shed light on the complex processes of conquest, extraction, and colonialism under imperial rule. But imperialism has usually been cast as an exclusively human drama, one in which the world of matter does not play an active role. Lori Khatchadourian argues instead that things—from everyday objects to monumental buildings—profoundly shape social and political life under empire. Out of the archaeology of ancient Persia and the South Caucasus, Imperial Matter advances powerful new analytical ...
