Fox, Robin Lane - Pagans and Christians - ( Item 125422 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2011. First Thus. 3 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. 3 volumes. Bound in cloth. Printed with individual designs by Adam McCauley. Set in Minion. There have been numerous books on the subject of paganism and early Christianity, but this is the first major work in English to set both side by side and explain how one gave way to the other. In his brilliant narrative, Robin Lane Fox confirms the enduring importance of the pagan religion in the ancient world. He then shows how Christianity first took root as an obscure cult practised by a persecuted minority, until eventually, through a series of unforeseen shifts, it became the official faith of the Roman Empire. The product of ten years' work, this is a magisterial study of one of the most important periods in Western history.
