Product Overview

For over a century, epic cinema has significantly shaped popular interest in Roman history and culture. "The Fall of the Roman Empire "(1964), the last of the silver-screen epics about ancient Rome before "Gladiator, "stands out as the only epic that attempted, and largely succeeded, to show the greatness of Roman civilization rather than to condemn it for luxury, debauchery, religious persecution, and imperialism.

The essays collected in this book present the first comprehensive appreciation of "The Fall of the Roman Empire "from historical, historiographical, and cinematic perspectives. The book also provides the principal classical sources on the period. It is a companion to "Gladiator: Film and History "(Blackwell, 2004) and "Spartacus: Film and History" (Blackwell, 2007) and completes a triad of scholarly studies on Hollywood’s greatest films about Roman history.
