Brown & Cameron on Scottish Train_Fotor

Substantial Reads: Alan Cameron, The Last Pagans of Rome (New York: Oxford University Press, 2011) and Peter Brown, Through the Eye of a Needle: Wealth, the Fall of Rome, and the Making of Christianity in the West, 350–550 AD (Princeton and Oxford: Princeton University Press, 2012)

This spring found me travelling around the country with an extra suitcase devoted to two monumental books by revered senior colleagues, as I struggled to bring to completion the two-year-long process of trying to account for two marvellously different ‘worlds of late antiquity’. I’m delighted to share here a link to the resulting review essay, published this week in the Journal of Roman Studies: ‘The Long Shadow of Constantine’
