Description

Excerpt from History of Rome and the Roman People, Vol. 6: From Its Origin to the Establishment of the Christian Empire; Part I., From the Accession of Commodus to the Death of Philip IN bringing this long labour to a close, I am bound to mention specially the care and ability of the translators, Mr. Clarke and Miss Ripley, who have become so expert in their work as to relieve me of most of an editor's trouble. For in this volume I felt it undesirable to curtail the French text, as has been done to some extent in Volume V. The general index, which was begun as a translation, very soon assumed an independent character, and will be found adequate for all practical purposes; indeed, to catalogue every minute fact or solitary name in so large a book would require an additional volume of print. The work is already voluminous enough, and the publishers are agreed with me that the death of Diocletian is the proper halting-place, as pagan Rome may be said to have no history after that date. The life of Julian is a retrograde step in Christian Rome rather than a survival of paganism. We therefore send this work into the world to take its place as the most complete Roman History yet published in the English tongue, and not likely to be superseded in our day.
