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...

The Triassic Period: The History and Legacy of the Geologic Era that Witnessed the Rise of Dinosaurs

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsScientists have long attempted to understand Earth’s past, and in service to that effort, they have divided the world’s history into eons, eras, periods, epochs and ages. For example, the current eon is called the Phanerozoic, which means “visible life.” This is the eon in which multi-cellular life has evolved and thrived. Before this, life was microscopic (single cell).The Phanerozoic eon is divided into 3 eras - Paleozoic (“old life”), Mesozoic (“middle life”) and Cenozoic (“new life”). From there, the Mesozoic era is divided into 3 periods - Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous.Before the Triassic, primitive life had built up in the oceans and seas, and some lifeforms finally had ...

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 ...

by E.C. Stever

I've been locked up on this planet too long. If I don't get home soon, I'll be one dead alien. All I really need is for Moctezuma to drag me up to the altar, pluck out my beating heart, maybe coat his forearms with my blood if he has time. Is that so much to ask? I wonder...Maybe Moctezuma knows what I really am. I mean, I look human. At least I think I got all the head-holes in the right places. But what if Moctezum...

Explore History’s Most Magnificent Civilization and its Profound Mystical Knowledge.For centuries, devoted scholars have endeavored to penetrate the mysteries of Ancient Egypt, the stone-age culture that abruptly rose to create the greatest civilization of known history. Champollion, founder of Egyptology, was the first of a thousand such men, living simply in the heat and dust, trying to read for us the riddle of the achievements of a mysterious civilization, to snatch from the secretive soil the science and technology, the art and literature, the history and wisdom of Ancient Egypt. By its side Sumeria's culture was but a crude beginning; not even the culture of Greece or Rome would surpass it, far less our own.How did a small community just emerging from a Neolithic stage suddenly gen...
