Introduction In a scathing letter to a certain Nilus Dionysius, the Roman emperor Julian ( r. 361-63) compares his own misjudgment of the senator’s character to that of two others: I was not the first to experience this, Dionysius. Your namesake deceived even the great Plato … and why must I speak

The Reign of Valentinian and Valens in Books 26 - 31 of the Res Gestae
In Books 26–31 Ammianus Marcellinus deals with the period of the emperors Valentinian and Valens. The representatives of the new dynasty differ greatly from their predecessor Julian, both personally and in their style of government. The Empire is divided between the two rulers, and suffers increasingly from barbarian invasions. Faced with these changes, Ammianus adapts his historical method. His treatment of the events becomes less detailed and more critical. The years following on the death of Julian are painted in dark colours, as the disaster at Hadrianople casts its shadow before. The papers in this volume, on History and Historiography, Literary Composition and Crisis of Empire, were presented during the conference "Ammianus after Julian" held in 2005.

Julian of Aeclanum )ca. 380-441/55 AD) is one of the most exciting figures of 4th/5th century Latin Christianity. Some of the most influential people in the western Church were among his relatives and friends. As a bishop he became famous for his charity and learning. In 418 AD he was deposed for refusing to endorse the condemnation of Pelagius and Caelestius. In a series of writings, mostly against Augustine, he justified his step and clarified his stance. He also rallied political support, not only in Italy, but also in the east.
This book tells the story of his life and discusses questions concerning his literary pursuits, philosophy, biblical exegesis and church political activities.
It thus throws light not only on Julian as an individual, but on the history and culture of his age.
