The sensuality and excesses of first-century Rome, the treacherous and deadly ploys of imperial politics, the shocking persecution of the early Christians by a power-mad emperor--THE FLAMES OF ROME presents the sensational and searing story of pagans at their worst and Christians at their best.

Often called the "father of church history," Eusebius was the first to trace the rise of Christianity during its crucial first three centuries from Christ to Constantine. Our principal resource for earliest Christianity, The Church History presents a panorama of apostles, church fathers, emperors, bishops, heroes, heretics, confessors, and martyrs. This edition includes Paul L. Maier's clear and precise translation, historical commentary on each book in The Church History, and numerous maps, illustrations, and photographs. Coupled with helpful indexes and the Loeb numbering system, these features promise to liberate Eusebius from previous outdated and stilted works, creating a new standard primary resource for readers interested in the early history of Christianity. - Back cover
