Product description

Complete Edition This is the lively account of the many miracles wrought by Apollonius as well as his journeys to Egypt and India and finally his showdown with the Emperor of Rome. It is also a philosophical and religious work that for a long time rivalled Christianity and Jesus Christ. In the Life of Apollonius, the Athenian author Philostratus, a sophist who lived from c.170 to c.247, tells the story of Apollonius of Tyana, a charismatic teacher and miracle worker from the first century CE who belonged to the school of Pythagoras. (A summary can be found here.) It is an apologetic work, in which Philostratus tries to show that Philostratus was a man with divine powers, but not a magician. He also pays attention to Apollonius' behavior as a sophist.
