Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Rome, then pay attention....

Rome started as a kingdom, thrived as a republic, conquered vast territories when it was an empire, and became the Holy City during the Middle Ages. Even today, Rome continues to intrigue us with its rich history, architecture, art, literature, religion, laws, and language. The abundant archaeological findings of Rome and its surrounding are but a fragment of what the city once was. Nevertheless, it is enough to engage us, tickle our imagination, and satisfy our thirst for knowledge. 

The importance of Rome cannot be argued. Its history is not the history of Italy or its people. Rome is a part of the foundation of Europe, just as Athens is. Without it, the world as we know it today wouldn’t exist.

In History of Rome: A Captivating Guide to Roman History, Starting from the Legend of Romulus and Remus Through the Roman Republic, Byzantium, Medieval Period, and Renaissance to Modern History, you will discover topics such as:

  • The founding of Rome: myth and reality
  • The Kingdom of Rome
  • The Roman Republic
  • Social wars and the end of the Roman Republic
  • Pax Romana
  • The third and early fourth centuries
  • The fall of the West; the East thrives
  • Rome in the Middle Ages
  • The Renaissance
  • Modern history of Rome
  • Much, much more

EXCELLENT!

Experiencing this comprehensive historical and factual reading has exposed the meager tidbits which our educational system calls history of the Western World. I now have a more complete understanding of our roots.
