The world of Rome by Michael Grant( Book )

86 editions published between 1950 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 2,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A brilliant survey of the conquests and culture of the Romans from 133 BC to AD 217--an era of unparalleled power when Rome made its greatest impact on the world.In this fresh, original interpretation of Roman history and culture, a distinguished classical scholar surveys the people and events that shaped the Roman Empire--the greatest structure of imperial government the world has ever known. Michael Grant re-creates the life and the era with its vital mixture of Italian, Greek, Near Eastern, and barbarian influences and its startling incongruities--citizen and slave, art and astrology, circus and senate, decadence and devoted patriotism. He portrays the dynamic culture which generated Roman literature, philosophy, and law, and shows how imperial administration and ideas of citizenship became the basis for the future nation-states in the western provinces. He sums up his fascinating study with a salute to Rome, the paterfamilias of the western world."--Publisher's description

"Just as it seems more plausible to suppose that Moses existed than to believe that he did not, so, too, it is hard to believe that all the mass of religious institutions ascribed to Moses was really the work of other men, the anonymous product, that is to say, of natural, gradual growth over a period of centuries. After all, Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha and Jesus were historical figures, despite the legends attached to their names. And the Mosaic religion contained astonishing novelities, which look as though they reflect the thought of one single, decisive individual

"The author looks at the gospels with an historian's eye, in search of the authentic Jesus. He seeks to separate those portions of the gospels that refer to the true career and teachings of Jesus, from the subsequent additions or inventions by the evangelists. The gospels are studied in the same way as other ancient historical sources, endeavouring to reconstruct what really happened and to uncover the truth of the historical Jesus. The picture of Jesus that emerges is in some respects unfamiliar." prod. desc
