The Age Of Constantine The Great

by Jacob Burckhardt

Condition: Very Good/None


This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards and minor bumping on the corners. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are beginning to yellow, but are clear of any markings.

"The epoch of remote history can be so relevant to modern interests as the period of transition between the ancient and the medieval world, when a familiar order of things visibly died and was supplanted by a new. Other transitions became apparent only in retrospect; that of the age of Constantine, like our own, was patent to contemporaries.Old institutions, in the sphere of culture as of government, had grown senile; economic balances were altered; peoples wither to on the peripheries of civilization demanded attention, and a new and revolutionary social doctrine with an enormous emotional appeal was spread abroad by men with a religious certainty that their end justified their means...." -Translator's Foreword from The Age Of Constantine The Great
