5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and of Timeless Importance 21 Feb 2005
By ScottTownsendPublishers - Published on Amazon.com
In this entertaining book the reader will be carried along by the dramatic style of the popular English writer and scholar Charles Kingsley. The text provides an enlightening account of early Germanic culture, while movingly describing the decadence of the latter-day Roman empire, and the revitalization of its Italian territories under the conquering Germanic nations that settled and repopulated Northern Italy.
Contents include: The Forest Children; The Dying Empire; The Human Deluge; Latham's Germania; The Gothic Civilizer; Dietrich's End; The Nemesis of the Goths; Paulus Diaconus; The Laws of the Lombards.
Rome died and its empire collapsed when wealth corrupted the social system and continual warfare sapped the bloodstream of the original founders so that its armies had to be recruited from the diverse peoples and the nations it had conquered. The final death blow was delivered by Germanic Goths and Lombards, who had retained a sense of tribal loyalty in the procreative haven of their northern forests.
