ROMAN EMPEROR VALERIAN I (AD 253-260)

Upon taking the throne, Valerian headed east, to take on the dreaded Persians and their nefarious ruler, Shapur I. He won Syrian territory until plague struck his army before the Battle of Edessa, which he lost to the Persians. He arranged a meeting with Shapur, to negotiate terms of a truce, but his rival violated the spirit of the meeting by taking him captive. He remained in the hands of the Persians from 260 until his death five years later...

Valens became the Eastern Roman Emperor in 364 CE. Although a fine administrator, Valens was not an effective military man, leading a series of unsuccessful campaigns against the Goths. In 378, at Hadrianopolis, he stubbornly refused to wait for reinforcements led by his nephew Gratian, hoping not to share the glory of victory. Instead, Valens’ attacking army was slaughtered, and he perished.

Gratian ascended to the throne of the Western Empire in 375 CE...

ROMAN EMPEROR HADRIAN (AD 117-138) Born in Spain in 76 CE, Hadrian ascended to the throne upon the death of Trajan in 117. Part military man, part philosopher-king, the new emperor toured the length and breadth of his empire, establishing order, drilling troops, and engaging in battle, famously crushing a Jewish revolt in Palestine in 130. He is considered one of the Five Good Emperors...

In 70 CE, the Emperor Vespasian broke ground on what would become, and still remains, the world’s largest Amphitheatre. The Coliseum was completed by his successor Titus ten years later, and modified during the reign of Domitian (81-96 CE). Because those emperors were from the Flavius family, the arena was for centuries known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, with the name Coliseum coined around 1000 CE...

This set highlights a pivotal moment in the history of Christianity: when the Virgin Mary is acknowledged not just as the mother of Jesus, but as the Mother of God.

Christianity did not wipe out pagan beliefs as much as it assimilated them into the new religion. Worship of various local gods and goddesses continued in modified form as veneration of the saints. And no saint was more venerated than Mary, the Virgin Mother of Jesus Christ...

Many are the tales of St. Valentine, the third-century priest martyred on February 14-what we now know as Valentine’s Day. Records from that period of Roman history, the so-called Age of Chaos, are spotty, but this is what has been handed down to us:

In the year 268 CE, Caesar Marcus Aurelius Claudius Augustus, known as Claudius Gothicus, assumed the Roman throne...

Roman emperor Constantine I, the Great, 307 -337 AD, is best known for being the first Christian Roman emperor. According to the Christian historian Eusebius, the turning point for Christianity’s rise in Rome is attributed to the Battle of the Milvian Bridge on Oct 28, 312 AD. Before the battle, Constantine beheld a flaming cross in the sky and the words, In Hoc Signo Vinces! (In This Sign Ye Shall Conquer). Seeing this as a divine signal, it is said that Constantine had his soldiers paint the...

Hadrian’s adopted son and heir, Antoninus Pius was notable for one reason: his pacifism. Emperors of Rome tended to be brutal individuals, drawn from the ranks of the imperial army, and quick to take up arms. It was said of Antoninus that, not only did he never commanded an army in his 23 years on the throne, but he never so much as inspected a garrison. He built the Antonine Wall, north of Hadrian’s Wall, to keep out the Picts.

A genuine ancient Roman silver coin of the notorious Emperor Elagabalus, renowned for his debauchery and decadence.

The cousin of the Emperor Caracalla, whose assassination in A.D. 217 led to a short period of crisis, Elagabalus was installed on the throne by his canny grandmother Julia Maesa a year later. Although he was just fourteen years of age, the new Augustus was anything but an innocent child. Uninterested in the military or affairs of state, the young emperor made use of his im...
