About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Companion to the Age of Constantine offers students a comprehensive one-volume survey of this pivotal emperor and his times. Richly illustrated and designed as a readable survey accessible to all audiences, it also achieves a level of scholarly sophistication and a freshness of interpretation that will be welcomed by the experts. The volume is divided into five sections that examine political history, religion, social and economic history, art, and foreign relations during the reign of Constantine, who steered the Roman Empire on a course parallel with his own personal development. Each chapter examines the intimate interplay between emperor and empire, and between a powerful personality and his world. Collectively, they show how both were mutually affected in ways that shaped the world of Late Antiquity and even affect our own world today. This edition has been revised, the notes and bibliography have been updated, and a new preface has been added.

    • The only comprehensive treatment of all aspects of Constantine and his times
    • Furnished with over fifty illustrations
    • Readable survey accessible to all audiences and also achieves a level of scholarly sophistication and interpretation welcomed by experts
