Synopsis: The longest war of the Roman imperial period is the war Marcus Aurelius waged with the northern German and Sarmatian tribes. The best-known events of these wars were the lightning and rain miracles. Divine intervention saved the Roman troops, surrounded by the Germans and suffering from a water shortage, by means of a lightning and rain miracle. Thunderbolts struck the enemy while the rain soothed the Romans' suffering. Several pagan and Christian versions of the miracle existed already in Antiquity. Peter Kovacs examines these events and their sources in detail. The most important source is the "Column of Marcus Aurelius in Rome". The scenes of the column depict the miracles as well, therefore it was separately studied. The author also sketches out the history of the Marcomannc wars. He publishes first all the sources of the miracles and examines the development of the legend from Antiquity to the 14th century.

About the Author: Peter Kovacs, Ph. D. (1969), in Archaeology University of Budapest, is associate professor at Pazmany Peter Catholic University. He has published extensively on history and epigraphy of Pannonia and sources of the province. Editor of the series Fontes Pannnoniae Antiquae (I-IV (2003-2007)) and Tituli Romani in Hungaria reperti (Bonn 2005).
