Product Description

Why, how, and even exactly when the Roman Empire finally collapsed remains debated even today. Yet, there is no question that it was long conquered before it collapsed by a tiny sect that descended from an utterly despised religion came to conquer the world's greatest, and perhaps most mythical, empires.

Christianity, a religion who began as a small group of Jewish devotees to Jesus of Nazareth conquered Rome. In Christianity Jonathan Hill masterfully recounts this epic struggle through recounting how Christianity itself was shaped by Rome, through persecutions, politics, and social structures, while also documenting the changes occurring in Roman society that paved the way for Christianity to become a living international religion within Roman rule.

Lucidly written, eminently accessible, highly informative, and adorned by breathtaking imagery without being ostentatious, Hill's Christianity is a feast for the mind and the senses. Christianity is a perfect textbook for all readers interested in the relationship between early Christianity and its Roman context, and anyone who believes imagery to be an intricate part of history.

Produced on high-gloss high for maximum photographic resolution, and constructed with a solid hard back design for years of durability.
