Originally published in 1901, this book examines life in the Roman Empire in the late fourth century through 'the writings of a series of typical men' from the period, focusing on literature rather than scientific writings. Glover analyses the works of Ammianus Marcellinus, Julian, Quintus of Smyrna, Ausonius, Symmachus, Macrobius, Claudian, Prudentius, Sulpicius Severus, Palladas, Synesius and the Confessions of St Augustine. A review of the work of women pilgrims and some Greek and early Christian novels is also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in this often-overlooked period of literary history or in the history of the Late Roman Empire more generally.

In this selection of letters, notable Romans write about themselves and their times, as well as about personal and public matters. Seneca provides indignant remarks about the behavior of women in Nero's Rome. From his monastic cell in Bethlehem, St. Jerome berates St. Augustine for gossip he may have spread. Some letters give a different perspective to history, while other talk of harvests, marriages, and day-to-day events. For historical continuity, Hooper and Schwartz include a running commentary and brief biographical sketches on the writers.

The transitory nature of the fourth century Roman Empire makes it a suitable candidate for at least four traditional categories: ancient, medieval, Byzantine, and early Christian history. This bibliography, containing 1,408 annotated entries, offers a comprehensive listing of twentieth century English language works on this subject. The book, divided into 11 chapters, covers works on the Roman Empire from A.D. 284 to 395. Topics covered include works of a general nature, politics and government, military matters, the sciences, society and art, foreign affairs and barbarians, religion and philosophy, Christianity, and church and state.
