King Jesus by Robert Graves( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Graves' unique retelling of his life, Jesus is very much a mortal, and the grandson of King Herod the Great. When his father runs afoul of the King's temper and is executed, Jesus is raised in the house of Joseph the Carpenter. The kingdom he is heir to, in this version of the story, is very much a terrestrial one: the Kingdom of Judea. Graves tells of Jesus' rise as a philosopher, scriptural scholar, and charismatic speaker in sharp detail, as well as his arrest and downfall as a victim of pitiless Roman politics. Bringing together his unparalleled narrative skill and in-depth expertise in historical scholarship, renowned classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves brings the story of Jesus Christ to life in a strikingly unorthodox way, making this one of the most hotly contested novels Graves ever wrote, and possibly one of the most controversial ever written. It provides a fascinating new twist to a well-known story, one that fans of this historical period are sure to love

This novel is a reconstruction of the early life of St Augustine of Hippo in fourth century Rome and Milan. It was a time of political decadence, but also of intellectual and religious ferment.

Augustine's moral and intellectual growth are described through the imagined journal of Alypius, his greatest friend and admirer. After they have studied together in Carthage, Augustine rejoins Alypius in Rome, where they are immediatey caught up in the struggle of contemporary philisophies
