Produktbeschreibung
The six-volume historical work "History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" was authored by Edward Gibbon. The Byzantine Empire's demise in 1453 is covered in Volume IV of the series, which spans the time from the late eighth century. Gibbon addresses the Isaurian dynasty's rule in the Byzantine Empire, notably that of Emperor Leo and the dispute surrounding iconography. The Crusades, especially the First Crusade and the founding of the Latin Empire in Constantinople, are examined in this book. Gibbon explores the role played by the Venetians in the Crusades as well as their effects on the Byzantine Empire's politics and economy. The Byzantine Empire came to an end in 1453 with the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, according to Gibbon, who finishes the volume. He gives in-depth analyses of the key figures and events of the time throughout the book and examines how they affected the rise of Western civilization. A detailed examination of the growth and fall of one of history's greatest empires and its effects on the world is provided in "History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," which is regarded as a key work in the discipline.
Autorenporträt
Edward Gibbon was a member of the English parliament, a historian, and a writer. On May 8, 1737, he was born, and on January 16, 1794, he died. His most important work, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, came out in six parts between 1776 and 1788. It is known for the quality and irony of its prose, the way it uses first-hand sources, and the way it criticizes organized religion in a polemical way. After getting sick in 1752, Gibbon went to Bath to get better. When he was 15, his father sent him to Oxford to study as a gentleman commoner at Magdalen College. But he didn't fit in well at college, and he later said that the 14 months he spent there were the "most useless and unprofitable" of his life. He lived in Lausanne for five years and read works by Hugo Grotius, Samuel von Pufendorf, John Locke, Pierre Bayle, and Blaise Pascal. He also traveled around Switzerland to study the constitutions of its cantons.
