Summary
Gibbon traces the history of more than 13 centuries and covers the great events as well as the general historical progression. This volume covers 395 A.D. to 1185 A.D., from the reign of Justinian in the East to the establishment of the German Empire in the West. It recounts the desperate attempts to hold off the barbarians, palace revolutions and assassinations, theological controversy, lecheries and betrayals, all in a setting of phenomenal magnificence
