History of Ancient Babylon

by George Rawlinson

Babylon, the capital of the Fourth Monarchy, was probably the largest and most magnificent city of the ancient world. A dim tradition current in the East gave, it is true, a greater extent, if not a greater splendor, to the metropolis of Assyria; but this tradition first appears in ages subsequent to the complete destruction of the more northern city; and it is contradicted by the testimony of facts. The walls of Nineveh have been completely traced, and indicate a city three miles in length, by less than a mile and a half in breadth, containing an area of about 1800 English acres. Of this area less than one tenth is occupied by ruins of any pretension. On the admitted site of Babylon striking masses of ruin cover a space considerably larger than that which at Nineveh constitutes the whole ...

The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...

The History of Ancient Rome: Book I: The Period Anterior to the Abolition of the Monarchy

by Theodor Mommsen

The Mediterranean Sea with its various branches, penetrating far into the great Continent, forms the largest gulf of the ocean, and, alternately narrowed by islands or projections of the land and expanding to considerable breadth, at once separates and connects the three divisions of the Old World. The shores of this inland sea were in ancient times peopled by various nations belonging in an ethnographical and philological point of view to different races, but constituting in their historical aspect one whole. This historic whole has been usually, but not very appropriately, entitled the history of the ancient world. It is in reality the history of civilization among the Mediterranean nations; and, as it passes before us in its successive stages, it presents four great phases of developmen...

Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters: Discover the Extraordinary Legends, Folklore & Myths of Ancient Greece (Greek Mythology, Greek Gods, Ancient Greece, Mythology)

by Franklin Pascal

Discover the Extraordinary Legends & Myths of Ancient Greece
The Greeåks were one of the first civilizations to conceive gods and goddesses that were similar to human beings: attractive men and women, old folks with dignity and humor, and young innocent children. Naturally, the gods interacted and communicated with humans on a regular basis. The gods were not typically withdrawn and reserved figures; they actively participated in the affairs of mortals and exercised their greater power to those they favored. In addition, they were neither omnipotent nor omniscient; they possessed individual and humanlike qualities that portrayed them as fallible, imperfect deities rather than absolute and supreme beings.

Sumerians: The Land Of The Civilised Kings: Discover The Truth About - The Sumerians (Babylonia, Nibiru, Gilgamesh & Planet X) (Genesis, Assyrians, Ziggurat, Lexicon, Pantheon, Mesopotamia, Sumer)

by Michael Hector

You may have already heard of the Sumerians; they were a great civilisation which existed six thousand years ago in what is now known as Iraq. It was this civilisation which introduced many of the current concepts which humankind lives by; the most obvious example of this is time. The Sumerians were the first people to divide time into sixty seconds and sixty minutes.
They are also a civilisation which is shrouded in mystery. Although they are generally accepted as the foundation of modern civilisation, they appeared from nowhere and seemed to arrive at the peak of their development. The period after this seems to show that they held their power for thousands of years before a slow decline into obscurity. They developed their own language and are credited with being the first civi...
