The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Volume 1

Audiobook

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 thirteen centuries, covering the great events as well as the general historical progression. This first volume covers 180 AD to 395 AD, which includes the reign of Augustus, the establishment of Christianity, and the Crusades.
