This review is from: The Last Pagan: Julian the Apostate and the Death of the Ancient World (Paperback)
Julian has not had a good popular biography for many years, so this book was overdue, and a pleasure to read. One of the most fascinating historical figures - like Claudius an academic Imperial achiever never expected to become emperor - Julian in addition battled to restore paganism in the face of Christianity. Murdoch has done him justice in this easy to read biography.
