"This compact book - which appeared earlier in the multivolume series A History of Private Life - is a history of the Roman Empire in pagan times. It is an interpretation setting forth in detail the universal civilization of the Romans - so much of it Hellenic - that later gave way to Christianity. The civilization, culture, literature, art, and even religion of Rome are discussed in this masterly work by a leading scholar."--BOOK JACKET
Foucault : his thought, his character by Paul Veyne ( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Michel Foucault and Paul Veyne: the philosopher and the historian. Two major figures in the world of ideas, resisting all attempts at categorization. Two timeless thinkers who have long walked and fought together. In this short book Paul Veyne offers a fresh portrait of his friend and relaunches the debate about his ideas and legacy. 'Foucault is not who you think he is', writes Veyne; he stood neither on the left nor on the right and was frequently disowned by both. He was not so much a structuralist as a sceptic, an empiricist disciple of Montaigne, who never ceased in his work to reflect on

Seneca : the life of a stoic by Paul Veyne ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Seneca's philosophical writings remain our core source for Stoic thought, and their influence, always immense, continues to be felt. Veyne's authoritative exposition of Stoicism, and the interconnections between Seneca's life and thought, make this book ideal reading for anyone interested in Roman history and philosophy. This compact and compelling book is an introduction to the life and philosophy of one of the ancient world's greatest thinkers by one of the great historians of our own time."--BOOK JACKET

When our world became Christian, 312-394 by Paul Veyne ( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This short book by one of France's leading historians deals with a big question: how was it that Christianity, that masterpiece of religious invention, managed, between 300 and 400 AD, to impose itself upon the whole of the Western world? In his erudite and inimitable way, Paul Veyne suggests three possible explanations. Was it because a Roman emperor, Constantine, who was master of the Western world at the time, became a sincere convert to Christianity and set out to Christianize the whole world in order to save it? Or was it because, as a great emperor, Constantine needed a great religion, and in comparison to the pagan gods, Christianity, despite being a minority sect, was an avant-garde religion unlike anything seen before? Or was it because Constantine limited himself to helping the Christians set up their Church, a network of bishoprics that covered the vast Roman Empire, and that gradually and with little overt resistance the pagan masses embraced Christianity as their own religion? In the course of deciding between these explanations Paul Veyne sheds fresh light on one of the most profound transformations that shaped the modern world - the Christianization of the West. A bestseller in France, this book will appeal to a wide readership interested in history, religion and the rise of the modern world. -- Back cover
