The Holy Roman Empire (Illustrated)
“The object of this treatise is not so much to give a narrative history of the countries included in the Romano-Germanic Empire—Italy during the middle ages, Germany from the ninth... More > century to the nineteenth—as to describe the Holy Empire itself as an institution or system, the wonderful offspring of a body of beliefs and traditions which have almost wholly passed away from the world. Such a description, however, would not be intelligible without some account of the great events which accompanied the growth and decay of imperial power; and it has therefore appeared best to give the book the form rather of a narrative than of a dissertation; and to combine with an exposition of what may be called the theory of the Empire an outline of the political history of Germany, as well as some notices of the affairs of mediæval Italy.”< Less
Decline And Fall of the Roman Empire
Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire--I
Edward Gibbon, son of a Hampshire gentleman, was born at Putney, near London, April 27, 1737. After a preliminary education at Westminster, and... More > fourteen "unprofitable" months at Magdalen College, Oxford, a whim to join the Roman church led to his banishment to Lausanne, where he spent five years, and acquired a mastery of the French language, formed his taste for literary expression, and settled his religious doubts in a profound scepticism. He served some years in the militia, and was a member of parliament. It was in 1764, while musing amidst, the ruins of the Capitol of Rome, that the idea of writing "The Decline and Fall" of the city first started into his mind. The vast work was completed in 1787. "A Study in Literature," written in French, and his "Miscellaneous Works," published after his death, which include "The Memoirs of his Life and Writings," complete the list of his literary labours. He died of dropsy on January 16, 1794.< Less

The Rising Roman Empire
Each time Rome fell it actually resulted in fewer people getting more power. I laugh when I see Gregory of Tours writing about Sanctuary and how the churchians sold the poor person who sought...

I laugh when I see celibate priests and their concubines but I understand there could be no inheritance for the illegitimate offspring of the priestly perversions. They dared to make women into second class humans at the Council of Carthage in 397 AD. They dared to have a Holy Alliance with corporate and state entities at the Treaty of Verona in the 19th Century.
