A Narrative of the Time of NeroBook - 2009
Marcus Vinicius is a passionate Roman tribune; Lygia Callina is a Christian maiden of royal descent and a hostage of Rome. At first Marcus has no notion of love, but he desires Lygia with animalistic intensity. Through political machinations, he contrives to have her taken by force into the decadent splendor of Ceasar's court, setting in motion a series of events that culminate in his own spiritual redemption. Set at the dawn of Christianity, and written with amazing historical accuracy, Quo Vadis won for its author the Nobel Prize. Translated into more than 40 languages, this captivating tale is one of the greatest novels in the history of religious literature. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
