Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

theologians like Tertullian and Saint Augustine are just some who rose to meet the challenges of their age. Susan Raven recounts the story of this magnificent empire in North Africa, drawing on a wide variety of literary and archaeological evidence in addition to her own experience of the region, and revivifies the ghosts of the crumbling remains. Attractively and comprehensively illustrated, this book will prove invaluable to students of the Roman provinces and Roman history in general.

Synopsis:

A history of the Roman occupation of Northern Africa. The Romans left their mark on the region, building some 600 cities and 12,000 miles of roads, but the period also provided opportunities for the talents of a number of Africa's sons, such as the writers Terence and Apuleius.

Synopsis:

Nearly three thousand years ago the Phoenicians set up trading colonies on the coast of North Africa, and ever since successive civilizations have been imposed on the local inhabitants, largely from outside. Carthaginians, Romans, vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, TUrks, French and Italians have all occupied the region in their time.

The Romans governed this part of Africa for six hundred cities, twelve thousand miles of roads and hundreds of aquaducts, some fifty miles long. The remains of many of these structures can be seen today.

At the height of its prosperity, during the second and third centuries AD, the area was the granary of Rome, and produced more olive oil than Italy itself.

The broadening horizons of the Roman Empire provided scope for the particular talents of a number of Africa's sons: the writers Terence and Apuleius; the first African Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, famous Christian theologians like Tertulllian and Saint Augustine - these are just some who rose to meet the challenges of their age.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 241-243) and index.
