Nero's insanity threatens the woman of one man's dreams and all of Roman Christianity. As princess of a now vanquished kingdom, the lovely Lygia lives a hostage in first-century Rome. As an arrogant nobleman accustomed to getting his way, Vinicius decides he will have this strikingly beautiful young woman. But the princess's deep Christian faith rattles the pagan Vinicius -- who first tries to take her by force, then determines to woo her to himself. As Vinicius pursues Lygia, her behavior and that of Rome's entire Christian community -- their love, compassion, and forgiveness -- begin to stir his cold, selfish heart. Soon, Emperor Nero steps up his persecution of the Christians, inventing hideous ways of eliminating these people who dare to reject his claims of deity. When the emperor's murderous plans ensnare Lygia, Vinicius must declare his allegiance -- to Nero, or to the one true God. Rich in historical detail, Quo Vadis is a deeply moving story of Christian faith amidst one of the darkest times in history. This classic novel, presented in unabridged form, will challenge you to live in the light of God's truth regardless of your circumstances. - (Summary from a c. 2000 edition of this title)

The countess Cathleen : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats( Book )

6 editions published between 1962 and 1972 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1892, The Countess Cathleen aroused fierce controversy when it was first performed, in a radically revised version, in 1899. The play was frequently revived and almost as often revised, becoming at various points in Yeats's career a decisive indicator of his relations with his literary and theatrical public, of his changing conception of dramatic form, and of the status of his pursuit of Maud Gonne, for whom the play was written. This volume in the Cornell Yeats reproduces the complete set of extant manuscripts preceding the play's first publication and reassembles the extensive manuscript, proof, and authorial copy now distributed in archives in Ireland, England, and the United States to present a crucial body of evidence of Yeats's work and thought in drama and theater over the course of three decades." "In addition to its authoritative introductory essay on the genesis of Yeats's most revised work, the book provides a comprehensive descriptive census and chronology of the manuscripts, a bibliographic account of the editions and printings in Yeats's lifetime, a table of the major revisions by act and scene, and appendixes giving the English and French sources of the play and the notes with the playwright's own corrections."--Jacket

Colas Breugnon by Romain Rolland( Book )

5 editions published between 1961 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colas Breugnon" is a charming romance of life in Burgundy three hundred years ago. It is an "autobiographical" novel, the story being told in the first person by Colas, who reviews his fifty years of life, and describes all its joys and sorrows. The story is gay and humorous, and full of wise observations about life. Colas Breugnon is the jovial Burgundian, the lusty wood-carver, the practical joker always fond of his glass. Before everything, Colas is a free man. He loves his king, but only so long as the king leaves him his liberty; he loves his wife, but follows his own bent; he is on excellent terms with the priest of a neighboring parish, but never goes to church. He is friendly with all, but subject to none
The history of Rome; an account of events and persons from the conquest of Carthage to the end of the Republic by Theodor Mommsen( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical historian Theodor Mommsen (1817-1903) published his History of Rome between 1854 and 1856. His work was received with widespread acclaim by the scholarly community and the reading public. In 1902, in recognition of this monumental work, Mommsen was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and acclaimed as `the greatest living master of the art of historical writing'. Mommsen rejected traditional Enlightenment accounts, which glorified ancient Rome; instead, guided by a new and rigorous criticism of sources, Mommsen began the demythologisation of Roman history. In a vivacious and engaging style, Mommsen drew bold parallels between the nineteenth century and classical Rome. Volume 4 covers the establishment of the military monarchy; this English translation, first published in 1866, corresponds to the fourth edition of the German third volume. Part I begins with the death of Sulla and ends with the subjugation of the West. --Book Jacket
