The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
Strelbytskyy Multimedia Publishing, 6. nov. 2018
This huge and fundamental historical work covers the history of Western civilization from the beginning of the Roman Empire’s break, when the Nerva–Antonine dynasty came to power, till the end of the 16th century with the descriptions of Arab and Mongol conquests, so a period from 98 to 1590. The work contained six volumes. Volume I was published in 1776, volumes II and III were published in 1781, volumes IV, V, and VI in 1788–1789. Due to its comparative objectivity and extensive usage of primary sources, unusual for the time, the author’s methodology is considered to become an example for further historians, and Gibbon, thanks to this work, is called the first “contemporary historian of Ancient Rome”.
