From Constantine to Julian provides students with important source material, covering an age of major transition in Europe; an age which saw the establishment of Rome as a Christian Empire and a period of recidivism under Julian.
Texts included are the anonymous Origo Constantini^; Eumenius, Panegyric of 310; Byzantine life of Constantine; Libanius, oration 59; and the Passion of Artemius. Most of this material has not previously been translated into English: students will now have direct access to the most important sources for the period which is studied on courses in classical antiquity, early medieval Europe and ecclesiastical history.
`..a thorough examination of the overlooked certainty that even under the rule of Constantine, the worlds first Christian Emperor, Pagan writing continued to flourishing abundance. … This is a highly recommended work that is a worthy addition (courtesy of Routledge) to the ever growing body of literature on Pagan Europe,' - ECCAARTH
'This source book deserves a place on any decent undergraduate reading-list. And its significance should be stressed.' - The Classical Review
