"The geographic range of the book is the Roman Empire, with the focus mainly on the Western Empire. Key themes include the transition from the Classical to the Medieval world, and from paganism to Christianity. The book brings together for the first time a fascinating range of objects to support its arguments, mot notably: the monumnetal marble head of Constantine from York; the mosaic roundel woth Christʼs head from Hinton St. Mary, Dorset; the earliest Christian silver hoard in the Roman Empire fromWater Newton, Cambridgeshire; the Late Roman silver hoard from Traprain Law, Scotland; the building inscription of Constantius from Hadrianʼs Wall, Northumberland; medallioins, coins and jewellery from Arras, France; early Christina tombstones from Trier, Germany; a papyrus fragment with text of the Constantine letter to the people of Palestine of 324, from the British Library; and the silver gilt personification of Constantinople from the Esquiline Treasure."--BOOK JACKET. Also includes information on Anglo Saxon England, animals, Bible, Britain, Christianity, symbols of Christianity, churches, clothing, coins and mints, Constantinople, Diocletian, economy, Eusebius (Bishop of Caesarea), glassware, hair and hairstyles, inscriptions, jewelry, manuscripts and papyri, mosaics, paganism, Rome, silver, statuary and sculpture, treasures and hoards, etc."@en
