From the cover: “The life of the Emperor Julian has tantalized the historian and the artist for sixteen centuries — a Greek intellectual who ruled an empire which for a century had been ruled by soldiers, almost all westerners. The direct effect on the course of history of his short reign was negligible, for his early death brought to an abrupt end his hope of replacing Christianity with the old pagan world of the gods. But he was not forgotten as were most of his predecessors and followers and he has provided a symbol for the hopes and fears of men for more than fifteen hundred years.
