    After describing in detail the last remnants of the Western Roman Empire volume 4 of 6 pivots to the East However before making that move Gibbon does a wonderful job explaining the lay of the land towards the end of the 5th and beginning of the 6th century in Europe and Northern Africa and the competing factions of barbarians contained therein now emboldened with the fall of Rome A particularly interesting bit of commentary is found at the end of chapter 38 with his General Observations of the fall of the Roman Empire in the West and a deep analysis of the reign of Theodoric the Ostrogoth Following this probing analysis we are lead to the political morass of the East and Constantinople Several familiar names are discussed in great detail including the Emperor Justinian his successful general Belisarius and the final successes of Heraclius before the impending invasion of the armies of Mohammed Great reading and a beautiful edition from Everyman Highly recommended

    But the subjects of the Byzantine empire who assume and dishonor the names both of Greeks and Romans present a dead uniformity of abject vices which are neither softened by the weakness of humanity nor animated by the vigor of memorable crimes The highlight of this volume is the exploits of Belisarius in retaking much of the Roman world from the Goths and Vandals Though what I find most intriguing so far in the work as a whole is how Christianity has been soaked in blood from its very beginnings through the wholesale slaughter of Christians by Christians If it isn't the definition of the Trinity it's the duality or non duality of Jesus the man and God in which fellow Christians chop each other into little bits Prince of Peace indeed
