EDITED WITH AN INTRODUCTION AND APPENDICES BY DAVID WOMERSLEY Although it covers no less than thirteen centuries of history, writes David Womersley, Gibbon's Decline and Fall 'is never routine, always alert with humanity and intelligence, often surprising in its sympathies'. It counts, quite simply, as 'one of the greatest narratives in European literature'. This definitive three-volume edition presents a complete and unmodernized text, the author's own comments and notes, and his famous Vindication. The first volume considers the extent and constitution of the empire under the Antonines and then takes events down to the end of the fourth century. It includes the controversial chapters on the early Church and examines in detail the reign of the first Christian and last pagan emperors, Constantine and Julian. Although it covers no less than thirteen centuries of history, writes David Womersley in his introduction, Gibbon’s Decline and Fall ‘is never routine, always alert with humanity and intelligence, often surprising in its sympathies’. It counts, quite simply, as ‘one of the greatest narratives in European literature’. ‘David Womersley’s edition is an enormous achievement … These volumes give us The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire on a scale worthy of the original’ J.G.A. Pocock in the London Review of Books Printed Pages: 1014.
