BACK COVER: An effort of historical emagination that succeeds magnificently...The grand theme, the interaction of pagan and Christian and the emerging domination of the latter, is supported at every point by a wealth of evidence, reference, and detail, splendidly controlled and often a great fascination in tis own right...Here is richness indeed....a magisterial analysis and recondtruction of an apparently remote and alien society....a detailed study of the single most important determinatant of our present attitudes and beliefs." Donald Earl, The London Times

"A work of generous humanity and recondite erudition...of consuming interest of all of us who want to know and understand the consequen es of the conversion of the ancient world." Henry Chadwick, The Financial Times
