About this title

Synopsis:

Excellent." ―The Reader’s Review

Thomas Burns takes us thoroughly through this moment of crisis, giving us a precise analysis of the principal players in this period of transition."―Military Illustrated

The book is well-written and throws new light on the events in the West a short while before the Fall of the Empire. Highly recommended!" ―The Journal of Indo-European Studies

With this impressive study Burns has greatly enriched late antique scholarship." ―Religious Studies Review

This is a substantial and well documented book which has reminded me that the importance of reading is not so much to absorb facts, but to take in new ideas." ―Besprechungen und Anzeigen

What Burns has accomplished here is a thoroughly interesting and compelling study of late-medieval piety in one diocese. It may well serve as a model for other local historians willing to engage in this important inquiry." ―Speculum

A major work on Roman policy toward the barbarians during one of the most exciting and challenging periods in the history of the Roman Empire, when barbarian soldiers became part of the forces defending the Roman frontier and gradually its rulers. By the close of these five decades, the Western Empire―hence Western Civilization―had changed forever.
