  • In 476 AD, the last of Romes emperors, known as Augustulus, was deposed by a barbarian general, the son of one of Attila the Huns henchmen. With the imperial vestments dispatched to Constantinople, the curtain fell on the Roman empire in Western Europe, its territories divided among successor kingdoms constructed around barbarian military manpower. But, if the Roman Empire was dead, Romans across much of the old empire still lived, holding on to their lands, their values, and their institutions.

    The conquering barbarians, responding to Romes continuing psychological dominance and the practical value of many of its institutions, were ready to reignite the imperial flame and enjoy the benefits. As Peter Heather shows in dazzling biographical portraits, each of the three greatest immediate contenders for imperial power–Theoderic, Justinian, and Charlemagne–operated with a different power base but was astonishingly successful in his own way. Though each in turn managed to put back together enough of the old Roman West to stake a plausible claim to the Western imperial title, none of their empires long outlived their founders deaths.

    Not until the reinvention of the papacy in the eleventh century would Europes barbarians find the means to establish a new kind of Roman Empire, one that has lasted a thousand years. About The Restoration of Rome: Barbarian Popes and Imperial Pretenders A sequel to the bestselling Fall of the Roman Empire, The Restoration of Rome offers a captivating narrative of the death of an era and the birth of the Catholic Church.

  • Titus Livius (Patavinus) (64 or 59 BC – AD 17)—known as Livy in English—was a Roman historian who wrote a monumental history of Rome and the Roman people – Ab Urbe Condita Libri (Books from the Foundation of the City) – covering the period from the earliest legends of Rome before the traditional foundation in 753 BC through the reign of Augustus in Livys own time.

    He was on familiar terms with the Julio-Claudian dynasty, advising Augustuss grandnephew, the future emperor Claudius, as a young man not long before 14 AD in a letter to take up the writing of history.

    Livy and Augustuss wife, Livia, were from the same clan in different locations, although not related by blood.

  • Rome has so much art, antiquities, architecture, and so many masterpieces that a visitor cannot possibly see all of them, even in multiple visits.

    The author has been fortunate to visit Rome over a dozen times since 2001. During those visits, she has compiled a personal list of favorite sites and how to find and visit them.This book includes ten curated walking tours of Rome, Italy that direct the reader to some of the authors favorites sites among all the artistic treasures that Rome has to offer.

    There are so many artists worthy of notice but the author has focused several walking tours on artworks by Bernini and Caravaggio.Because touring is thirsty work, shes also included tips on nearby cafes because one may often be in need of a meal or at least a refreshing caffe or a bellini, depending on the time of day.

    Look for these in the sections boxed in Red and titled Ready for a Pick-me-Up?And, for those who do have additional time to spend, personal favorite sites unrelated to the particular walking tour are also highlighted.
