Inspired during a trip to Rome to write a work that would come
to define a large portion of his life, Gibbon proceeded to write one of
the most ambitious histories in the English language. "The
History" is an epic narrative, comprised of six volumes, that
covers thirteen centuries of Roman history. Beginning after Marcus
Aurelius in 180 and concluding in 1453, Gibbon provides both the broad
pattern and the illuminating details of this time period, covering an
enormous number of characters and topics with insightful precision. The
general objective of this history is to mark the gradual fall of the
Roman Empire, stating many reasons for Rome's decay, from political
decisions to religious behavior. Published between 1776 and 1788,
"The History" has all of the detached irony and objective
quality of eighteenth century prose, and it is additionally praised for
its extensive and accurate use of reference materials. Gibbon's use of
citations became the precursor to today's footnotes, providing
entertaining commentary on both ancient Rome and the Great Britain of
his own time. Now called the 'modern historian of ancient Rome,'
Gibbon's bold work has become the model of most modern historians.
Contained here is volume IV of VI, representing chapters XXXIX through
XLVIII and is extensively annotated by H. H. Milman.
