Abstract:

"Flavius Claudius Julianus (331/332-363 CE), better known to history by the name imposed by his Christian opponents, Julian "the Apostate," was a nephew of the first Christian emperor, Constantine I. Julian is one of the most fascinating figures of late antiquity. More information is available about him from both pagan and Christian sources than about any other Roman emperor. His reign inspired both admiration and contempt." "This is the first modern English translation of the complete corpus of Julian's Against the Galileans and related writings, including letters and edicts bearing on Julian's attitude toward Christians and the Church, together with the most famous accounts of his short career written by the Christian historians Socrates Scholasticus and Sozemon, both composed within a century of Julian's death. It not only puts the work of the philosopher-emperor into historical perspective but also offers important insights into the waning days of pagan philosophy and the growth of the Christian church against the background of intellectual and religious opposition. The translations are supported by a full historical introduction to the life of Julian and a detailed treatment of his religious philosophy, including the origins of his understanding of the Christian faith." "This translation is essential reading for anyone interested in the religions of late antiquity, the growth of the Christian church, and the final phase of the conflict between paganism and Christian teaching."--Jacket.
