Considered one of the finest historical works in the English language, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire is lauded for its graceful, elegant prose style as much as for its epic scope. Remarkably accurate for its day, Gibbon's treatise holds a high place in the history of literature and remains an enduring subject of study.

Gibbon's monumental work traces the history of more than 13 centuries, covering the great events as well as the general historical progression. This first volume covers A.D. 180 to A.D. 395, which includes the establishment of Christianity and the Crusades. Download and start listening now!

    " I was studying latin and read these three volumes toward the end of the fall semester, over the break, and into the spring. Gibbon is such a joy to read, it makes you appreciate the literary capacity of 18th academics. I think I would rate him with Tocqueville, in terms of the beauty of his historic narrative. "

    " Isn't this the greatest history book ever written? And it's so funny! (in places) Gibbon has such a cutting wit, you occasionally laugh out loud. "

    " If you're like me, and I know *I* am, then you'll love Gibbon's definitive 5-volume history of the Roman Empire. Don't pussy out and read an abridged version. Abridged versions are for horse-thieving, mud-eating, ballcap-wearing turd farmers. "

    " Always scribble, scribble, scribble, eh, Mr. Gibbon? "
