A while back I reblogged Robert Horvat’s interesting article on Julian the Apostate, the single non-Christian Emperor in the history of Byzantium. Here is the continuation of that series, getting into the detail of how Julian achieved power amidst the intrigues of the 4th century A.D. Great stuff, and I’m looking forward to the continuation!
