When we think of ancient Rome, we think first of the gladiators. These professional fighters delighted frenzied crowds in the Coliseum, doing battle with wild animals, with condemned criminals, and with one another, sometimes fighting to the death.

After the death of Nero, the last emperor of the Caesar Augustus line, in 68 CE, Rome began a slow but inexorable decline. The next two and a half centuries yielded crisis after crisis, with four new dynasties occupying the throne, all but a handful forgotten.

Not until the fourth century CE was the glory of Rome restored. In 305 CE, Constantine I became emperor. Not since the heyday of the Julio-Augustan dynasty has a Roman Emperor exerted such profound influence on the world...
