Description - Julian's Gods by Rowland B. E. Smith
Julian's brief reign (360-363 AD) had a profound impact on his contemporaries, as he worked fervently for a pagan restoration in the Roman Empire, which was rapidly becoming Christian. This text focuses on the cultural mentality of "the last pagan Emperor" by examining a wide variety of his own writings. The surviving speeches and treatises, satires and letters offer an insight into the personal attitudes and motivations of the Emperor. They show Julian as a highly educated man, an avid student of Greek philosophy, and a talented author in his own right.
