Review:


"Perhaps for the first time we are here introduced to the world of the later Roman governing classes seen in the round; to their otium as well as their offices, their religion as well as their politics, their literary culture as well as their wealth....A lively and pleasantly written book."--Journal of Roman Studies


"This excellent book...makes a substantial and valuable contribution to our appreciation of the period."--Journal of Theological Studies


"An insightful examination of an essential period in the development of the West."--Catholic Historical Review
