Product description

Review

"British historian Adrian Murdoch's "The Last Pagan "(the phrase comes from the English poet Swinburne)""is a thorough-going biography of Julian. In this book, we get a strong sense of the history of the fourth century, which is the age of the decline of the Roman empire made famous by English historian Edward Gibbon, who Murdoch asserts, made Julian the hero of his work." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Adrian Murdoch is an historian and journalist. Educated in Scotland and at The Queen's College, Oxford, he is a regular contributor to The Herald. He has written 'The Romans in Germany' and is co-translator of an anthology on Roman decadence. His book 'Death in the Forest: Romes Greatest Defeat' will be published by Sutton early in 2006.
