    Hello

    My father always told me that we were barbarians and it always seemed odd to me. Most modern people view barbarians as negative. In researching my background and some passages from the bible I realized I am proud to be barbarian.

    Not true. I can really recommend a book I'm currently reading:
    Terry Jones' Barbarians: An Alternative Roman History


    is an excellent book about the Roman Empire and its interactions with the different societies and cultures it came into conflict with over the centuries. Using mostly Roman sources it tells very different histories about these other “barbarian” cultures and compares them to “civilized” Rome, exposing the true barbarians.

    The book is divided into four parts: The Celts; Barbarians From the North (Germans, Dacia and Goths); Barbarians From the East (Hellenes, Persia – the early dynasties and Sassanians); and Vandals and Huns. As I finished each part I wished they had written more about each, but I realized that the stories they were telling were over. This does create a minor issue, as the Vandals’ history with the Roman Empire collides with the Goths’ history with the Romans. Several times the authors refer back to the same events written about earlier in the book. This aside, I enjoyed being able to follow the history of the Roman Empire’s interaction with the different cultures from beginning to end (or assimilation)

    Besides the conflicts with other cultures, the authors bring up the Empire’s conflicts with Christianity. They also go into some detail about the conflicts between the early Christian Churches as they battled for supremacy. These conflicts between the early Christian Churches cast a large bloody shadow over the very foundation of Christianity.

    Highly readable, often humorous and always entertaining, is also thought provoking. At a slim 260 pages it is an excellent introduction to the history of the Roman Empire and also the early Christian Church.

    A really interesting book

    And welcome to Skadi forum!

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele
