This is a fascinating book in several respects, although it might not be targeted at the "general reader." One of its main attractions was the care taken by the author to assess and show to what extent Domitian's reputation has been blackened both by his successors (the five so-called "good Emperors" that came after him: Nerva, Trajan, Hadrien, Antonin and Marcus-Aurelius), by the Senate and  › Books › Biographies & Memoirs › Historical.

2 days ago  Domitian was a Roman emperor who lived during the 1 st century AD. He was the son of Vespasian, and the younger brother of Titus, whom he succeeded as emperor. Together, these three emperors form the Flavian Dynasty, which was established after the chaos of the Year of the Four Emperors. Domitian is remembered negatively by future generations   The book further challenges many of the assumptions concerning Domitian’s connection with the persecution of the early Christians. Domitian remains one of the most important and intriguing of the Roman rulers. Roman historians will have to take account of Corson's book is entertaining and very well written.

Despite a literary tradition that associated Domitian with Flavian poverty, the family's status remained high throughout his early years: Vespasian was appointed to the prestigious proconsulship of North Africa in A.D. 59, and DOMITIAN də mĭsh’ ən.

Rome, "the great Babylon", "was drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus " (Revelation , 6 ; , 13 ; ; Domitian, Emperor of Rome AD , has traditionally been portrayed as a tyrant, and his later years on the throne as a `reign of terror'. Brian Jones' biography of the emperor, the first ever in English, offers a more balanced interpretation of the life of Domitian, arguing that his foreign policy was realistic, his economic programme rigorously efficient and his
