About the Book

The six-volume history "History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" was authored by Edward Gibbon. Volume 2 of the series covers the period from the downfall of the final Western Roman Emperor Romulus Augustus in AD 476 to the reign of the Roman Emperor Gratian in AD 375. This book covers the fall of the Western Roman Empire, including the political upheaval, tribal invasions, economic hardships, and religious strife. It also talks about the establishment of the Byzantine Empire, often known as the Eastern Roman Empire, and its wars with Persia. Gratian, Valentinian, Theodosius, and Honorius are just a few of the emperors whose reigns are covered in-depth by Gibbon. He also talks on how Christianity contributed to the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Catholic Church. Romulus Augustus' removal from power signals the end of the Western Roman Empire and brings the volume to a conclusion. Gibbon's work is regarded as a classic in the history discipline because of its in-depth analysis, copious research, and critical perspective.

About Author

Edward Gibbon

Edward Gibbon was a member of the English parliament, a historian, and a writer. On May 8, 1737, he was born, and on January 16, 1794, he died. His most important work, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, came out in six parts between 1776 and 1788. It is known for the quality and irony of its prose, the way it uses first-hand sources, and the way it criticizes organized religion in a polemical way. After getting sick in 1752, Gibbon went to Bath to get better. When he was 15, his father sent him to Oxford to study as a gentleman commoner at Magdalen College. But he didn't fit in well at college, and he later said that the 14 months he spent there were the "most useless and unprofitable" of his life. He lived in Lausanne for five years and read works by Hugo Grotius, Samuel von Pufendorf, John Locke, Pierre Bayle, and Blaise Pascal. He also traveled around Switzerland to study the constitutions of its cantons.
