Item description for The Historians of Late Antiquity by David H. Rohrbach & David Rohrbacher...

The fourth and fifth centuries AD were an era of religious conflict, political change and military conflict. The responses of contemporary historians to these turbulent times reflect their diverse backgrounds - Christian and pagan, writing in both Greek and Latin, documenting church and state.
This volume is the first to offer an accessible survey of the lives and works of these varied figures. The first half of the book explores the structure, style, purpose and nature of their writings. The second half compares and contrasts the information the historians provide, and the views they express on some central topics. These range from historiography, government and religion to barbarian invasions, and the controversial emperors Julian 'The Apostate' and Theodosius.

Historians of Late Antiquity informative and enjoyable  Dec 14, 2002
Dr. Rohrbacher's seminal work is meticulously researched and wonderfully written. Not only does it contain a wealth of information on the historians of this exciting and dynamic era, but it is also a delight to read. _Historians of Late Antiquity_ will thus be both useful to academics and accessible to general readers.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Brilliant!  Nov 29, 2002
David Rohrbacher's The Historians of Late Antiquity is written with mind-numbing gusto. The prose is elegant, lively, and devilishly clever. Chapter Six, "Olympiodorus," is a real highlight. We history nuts have been waiting for a book like this for quite a while, and the young Dr. Rohrbacher has really stepped up and delivered.

Scholars and laymen will enjoy this magnum opus--I know I did. Buy this book!
