Book Description:
From one of the world's greatest writers on ancient history a new work that explores the colorful decline of the Roman Empire during the reign of the Severans, the first non Italian dynasty, whose reign extends through nine emperors, from 193 to 235 C.E, from Septimius Severus to Severus Alexander, and including the reigns of Caracalla and Elagabalus. Using the highly praised, accessible style that is his trademark, Michael Grant describes the foreign wars waged against the Alemanni and the Persians; the remarkable personalities of the imperial family; the unprecedented role of women and lawyers; as well as the major developments in art, architecture, the novel and religion during this era. Highlights of The Severans include encounters with Julia Domna's alleged literary circle and Elagablus's curious private life (exemplified by acts such as dancing in the streets, marrying a Vestal Virgin, and smothering his enemies with rose petals). With its extensive selection of illustrations, maps, and extensive bibliography, The Severans will appeal to the student of ancient history as well as to all generally interested readers of classical history.
