Philip the Arab: A Study in Prejudice

by

Philip the Arab: A Study in Prejudice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only significant book on this little known Roman emperor.

Originally from Syria, Philip the Arab ruled the Empire of the East from AD 244 to 249 and is remembered for being sympathetic to the Christian faith—some even claim that he converted to Christianity long before Constantine famously converted. He also brought peace with the Sassanid Empire at long last.

Synopsis:

One of the few Arab Emperors of Rome, and a celebrated champion of Christianity before Constantine formally adopted the faith.
