Orosius'" Seven Books of History against the Pagans" provide a Christian interpretation of history from God's creation of the world to the period of the Gothic attacks on the Roman Empire in the early fifth century. By the end of that century, Orosius' work was already a classic and its Christian perspective ensured that it remained an immensely popular and standard work of reference on antiquity in the medieval world. Available now in English translation for the first time since 1936, this key work of historical and geographical reference in the medieval world will delight scholars of early Christianity and pagan history.
